Elektra Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
Art dealer Sal Abbinanti has debuted Bill Sienkiewicz’s stunning variant cover for Elektra #1, which arrives in April as part of Marvel’s All-New Marvel NOW! initiative. The issue also boasts covers by Michael Del Mundo, Milo Manara, Paolo Rivera and Skottie Young.
Sienkiewicz of course has a long history with the character, having collaborated with her creator Frank Miller on the 1986 Epic Comics miniseries Elektra: Assassin. He also provided covers for a few issues of her 2001-2004 Marvel Knights series, as well as for the 2005 miniseries Elektra: The Hand.
It wasn’t that long ago that we showcased Paolo Rivera’s amazing Herge-inspired wedding invitation, and now we have some terrific souvenirs from the ceremony of Andie Tong.
The artist, whose work ranges from Spectacular Spider-Man (U.K.) to The Batman Strikes! to the upcoming Zodiac with Stan Lee and Stuart Moore, drew adorable “power couples” from comics and film for cards that were given to his wedding guests. Fans may quibble with Tong pairing Superman with Wonder Woman, rather than Lois Lane, but I imagine the guests were pleased with the favors.
With Tong’s permission, we’ve posted all of the illustrations below.
Typically, I’ll spend most of Saturday in panels, but the first one I was interested in wasn’t until later in the morning, so I killed time taking in some of the more offbeat exhibitors, like Ben the Bubble Guy, a businessman who hires himself out for birthday parties, corporate events, funerals. Okay, maybe not funerals.
When it was time, I headed up to the fourth floor for the AV Club‘s panel on the Future of Superheroes.
