Evil Geeks Art Gallery – X-cessive Force
Long time no see, my fellow art aficionados. For those of you unfamiliar with this particular wing of the Brotherhood’s Evil Lair, you’ve entered the Evil Geeks Art Gallery.
There is no collection on God’s green earth to rival the contents of these hallowed halls. You’ve seen recreations of Captain America Comics #1, The Shocking Climax of the Empire Strikes Back, the cover art to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, the Death of Elektra, and the theatrical poster for Back to the Future.
And still, you’ve come back for more.
Well this week we’ve got a special treat in store for you! In honor of Liefeld Week, I commissioned the finest artists on hand to recreate the timeless masterpiece that is the cover of X-Force #1.
When these wondrous pages were quickly returned to me, you can imagine the joy I felt.
Arthur Harkness very nice captured the raw fury of Liefeld’s original, paying particular attention to Cable’s crotch-hatching.
Whereas Biff took a more minimalist approach but a savvy observer notices an almost childlike innocence in the eyes of these children-turned-soldiers.
Now, I am not a man who is ashamed to weep, I’ve not too much bravado to shed a tear at a truly beautiful sight. Alas, after receiving these two marvelous works I blew out my tear ducts and have had to have them replaced with a set from a baby elephant. And when I processed these drawings in the Collabotron I’d officially wasted $5700 on that surgery, as my elephant tear ducts turned into as much jelly in my skull at the first glimpse of this uncanny sight.
I was overcome with emotion that I smashed open the Collabotron to find the secrets of this work of art, to perhaps explore the process behind its creation. These short videos were all that I could salvage.
