August 4, 2009

Dave Devries is my favorite artist in the whole world. From the mid-nineties Marvel Masterpieces to the spectacular contributions to Vs. System, his paintings make life worth living for a superhero card collector like me. We do not know which artists will be featured in the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game, but we are keeping our fingers crossed. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Adrian Alphona is the epitome of loud modern comic book goodness. It remains to be seen if the Marvel Superstars Trading Card game will feature bouncing bold beauties like these, but a b-boy can dream while we wait to find out.

Artist Spotlight: Mark D. Bright.

Today we celebrate the old-school classic style of Mark “Doc” Bright. Two decades of comic book fans have enjoyed his steady lines and bold strokes. He helped to create the wedding of Medusa and Black Bolt, as well as the storyline that was eventually used in the Iron Man movie. When the art is chosen for the new Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game, perhaps he could represent the traditional renditions for generations to come.

Artist Spotlight: Meghan Hetrick

One of the greatest joys found in the collision between comic books and trading cards is the aesthetic expansion of their modern mythos. In other words, we get to see our favorite superheroes drawn and painted in fresh new ways.

The Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game might continue this artistic tradition. While we wait for confirmation we will showcase some artists who contributed original art sketch cards to Marvel Masterpieces, one of Upper Deck’s other superheroic products.

Today we present Meghan Hetrick and her grinning purity of expression.

That last card perfectly portrays the obscure yet incomparable beauty of Gertrude Yorkes. Will she be included in the character roster for the Marvel Superstars Trading Card Game? Highly unlikely. Will Meghan Hetrick’s sublime renditions be featured in the artwork on the game cards? Probably not.

Nevertheless, we applaud Meghan’s talent here today. Spectacular stuff.
