From the Archives: Ultimate Spider-Man process.
When I see the amount of work that goes into a single panel of artwork, $3.99 feels like a bargain…
Russian Olive to Red King pp 42-44
Stuart Immonen 20somethingish: Russian Olive to Red King
Kathryn described the book to website Avoid the Future:
It’s two parallel narratives detailing the final days of a relationship. Red King is the man left at home struggling unsuccessfully with an overdue deadline and the unexplained disappearance of his partner, Russian Olive, who may or may not have survived a plane crash in the northern bush. It’s also got petroglyphs and Chekhov. Sounds like a scorcher, right?
Team Immonen posted these finished pages to Russian Olive to Red King almost a year ago and were cutting and pasting some scenes just a few weeks ago.
The few pages the Immonens have shared have me intrigued and I can’t wait to read it whenever they share it with the world!

As my blog catches up to the current day, I’m faced with reblogging images that have recently made the rounds to much fanfare. Normally I’d take a pass on these except for the fact that these pages are so humorously expressive. I simply can’t not post them.

When the original five joined up with Cyclops’ crew in the aftermath of Battle of the Atom, the new chapter of their story was punctuated with new costumes designed by Immonen. As related in this Newsarama article by Chris Arrant, it appears that Marvel largely left Immonen to his own devices and relied on him to deliver something great.
The designs are some of the most contemporary in comics today and balance team cohesiveness with with individual customization. While they appear to abandon the traditional themes these characters have traditionally worn, it’s interesting to note that they hew fairly closely to the color schemes their older counterparts wore as the original incarnation of X-Factor.

This quiet touching moment between brothers is rendered all the more potent by the Immonen’s use of high-contrast light and shadow.
comicartistevolution asked: Thanks for reposting some of my Immonen features. And even though the attraction is squarely on the artists I showcase, I get validation (and a HUGE thrill) when creators I genuinely admire "like," "reblog," "follow," or make contact. So, a great big heartfelt thank you.
I love your tumbler.
I wish I would’ve thought of it and I wish I would have had the time to pursue making something like it myself. this is exactly the kind of thing I love. I hope you continue with it for a good long time.
Wow. I’m not great at taking compliments, so I’ll just say thank you very very much. I’m beyond flattered. I’ll keep at the Tumblr so long as you keep turning out the great comic books.
