Stuart Immonen comes to Chicago’s Challengers Comics tonight
He’s tearing up the Marvel U in Fear Itself, but now cartoonist Stuart Immonen is bringing his talents to Chicago’s Challengers Comics.From now until Aug. 8, Challenger’s art gallery will be exhibiting original art from Fear Itself as well as other work from Immonen’s ouvre. (say ‘Immonen’s ouvre’ three times fast).
Immonen has become an artist’s artist in recent years, providing aesthetically pleasing art that fits within the mainstream super-hero comics mold without sacrificing artistic flourishes and pure draftsman-like skill. From Legion of Super-Heroes to Superman to Nextwave, New Avengers and now Fear Itself he’s seen, and done it all… twice, probably.
Immonen will be on-hand tonight for an opening event from 7-9 p.m. Chicago time. They’ll also have an exclusive 11″ x 17 ” limited edition print that would look great at Robot 6 HQ (just sayin’).
