I love the Louise and Walt Simonson run on X-Factor. Probably one of my all-time favorite runs in comics. I always thought the inhibitor belt was a cool look for Iceman.

Beast, X-Men. Copic markers.

This is my favorite era for Beast. 80’s X-factor-early 90’s X-Men.

I drew this Jean Grey piece for fun during some downtime last week.
The original X-Men class uniforms are a great design!

Apocalypse from X-Factor… or “Ol’ Blue Lips is Back…”

I was a kid when Apocalypse first appeared in the pages of X-Factor.
He was such a simple bad guy back then: morphing, stretching, some experimenting, and world domination planning…
Ah, the good ol’ days….

Sketch Card: Iceman

April 28th, 2011 No comments

Iceman has to be one of my favorite X-Men. As a kid, I first discovered Iceman on the cartoon, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. Once I got into collecting comics, Iceman was a regular in the Defenders comics. But the local grocery store, where I bought my comics off of a spinner rack in the cereal aisle, rarely ordered Defenders comics. So I pretty much missed out on those stories as the series ended shortly after I began collecting comics.

But I remember the day I found X-Factor #3. There he was on the cover along with Cyclops and Angel. I didn’t know who Marvel Girl was at that time since she had already died before I started to read comics and had just recently come back to life. X-Factor was originally a series that reunited the first five X-Men as a team once again. They posed as humans for hire to hunt and eradicate the mutant menace but were actually rescuing mutants and training them to control and use their powers.

I often would buy whichever comic issue interested me at the time, but X-Factor immediately became one of the few books I began reading regularly (along with Uncanny X-Men and Peter Porker the Spectacular Spider-Ham). I became a huge fan of the book when Walt Simonson took over as regular artist. His dynamic storytelling and figure work along with his unique design style easily made him one of my earliest influences.
