Color Me Impressed

Before we go any further: Buy this. I don’t normally tell people straight out to buy the auctions we post up here on Comic Noize. We trust you can tell the difference between items that you should scoop up and the stuff that is just fun to read about. I suggest you click all of it and check out how ridiculous sellers on Ebay can be, but actually buying it… that’s your call. But this is cool. And cheap. Therefor, something that should be purchased.

Coloring is the second-most misunderstood art tied to the comic book medium (lettering being slightly more misunderstood), and doesn’t get the respect it deserves as an art unto itself. As a professional penciller said recently, “there are good colorists, then there are colorists who are good AND advance the story and those are truly rare.” Well put. Do yourself the disservice of checking out those calling themselves colorists on Deviantart.com or Digitalwebbing.com and you’ll immediately recognize the value of a good one. For every 50 people who color, there is one that truly adds something.

So pick this up. It’s from a cool period in Amazing Spider-Man history and if you hang it up in your home you are doing your small part to recognize the artistry of comic book coloring. Or at least you are recognizing the process behind your favorite medium. Also, it’s the perfect cheap Christmas gift for a Spidey fan.

90’s Hobgoblin

Of all the spider-villains, Hobgoblin was one of my favorites. Admittedly, he’s a blatant ripoff / amalgamation of the Green Goblin and Jack O’Lantern, but I digress.

What I didn’t like was when he was bastardized into the demo-goblin courtesy of the infinity war. Diluting an already thin character who no one actually wants to have depth with a terrible storyline really hurt. Let’s be honest. Let the Hobgoblin terrorize the huddled masses with pumpkin bombs and have Spider-Man come and smash him. Case closed.

Now why you gotta go and give him a pumpkin earring? Oof. Otherwise – this piece is actually pretty awesome and if the reserve isn’t set too high, I bet this could go for considerably less than the $1200 buy it now.
