I apologize for my absence from these hallowed halls of the Evil Geeks Art Gallery, I’ve been trotting the globe scouring for pieces from antiquity. Alas, no period in man’s history has produced works as astounding as these following examples, and I have as a result returned empty handed. I give you, the Art Gallery so far (in hyperlink form).
I know what you’re thinking; “That about does it for art, civilization, you’ve gone and peaked”. Well think again, my friends. My appetite for beauty is positively insatiable and I have once more opened my billfold to commission a work of finest art from two modern masters. Truly, this generation has offered no purer talents than Biff Tannen and Arthur Harkness!
And SURELY their skills have never been put to a greater test than the awkward beauty of the Mega Man 2 cover art. One of the most playable videogames released for the NES (And that, sir, is saying something!), Mega Man 2 was an improvement in every way upon its predecessor. More bosses, longer gameplay, still challenging and yet not impossible. This game long stood as my favorite, and so this project was near and dear to my heart of hearts. And it was, indeed the first addition! Let me tell you the tale.
Sick and tired of waiting for Warner Brothers and/or DC Comics to tarnish the legacy of the Dark Knight Returns with the upcoming film Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice or the proposed third chapter of the comic book storyline? Well, wait no more! Resident artists Biff Tannen and Arthur Harkness are here to begin the memory-sullying that will undoubtedly occur in the next few years. I tasked them to reproduce the following image in their own distinctive style:
As we once more stroll through the hallowed halls of the Evil Geeks Art Gallery, I would like to remind you of the importance of the classics. Sure, many of the subjects we’ve studied in the past have been from the Post-Post-Modern era of pop culture art, or POPOMOPOP, as we call it in the industry, but our artists’ styles have been undoubtedly shaped by the classics. Perhaps my personal favorite comic book cover of all time, today’s featured painting is undeniably a classic.
Perhaps the biggest new story from this week’s PerryCon, Director Tyler Perry unveiled plans for the next wave of films set in his Madea Cinematic Universe.
Fans and reporters flooded into Hall C this afternoon expecting to see a panel featuring the stars of Perry’s latest theatrical venture, Madea’s Neighbors From Hell. Instead, however, the screens lit up with a brief teaser trailer featuring Perry’s infamous character Madea playing host to a Thanksgiving table filled with zany characters the likes of which audiences had never before seen. When the lights came back up, Perry pranced onstage only heightening the chaotic din of the overwhelmed audience. Behind him, the screens shifted to the following image…

Oh hello, Internet, I didn’t see you come in. How does this morning find you? That’s good to hear… oh, I’m doing quite well, thanks for asking. I recently acquired a new piece of art. No, I didn’t visit that gallery exhibition downtown, although I hear they had some delightful pieces; This was a work I commissioned from two of our generation’s greatest masters: Biff Tannen and Arthur Harkness. You may recall that in the past I have tasked them with recreating some of my favorite nerd culture images, yes? This one is almost undeniably the finest of those works. Here is the classic, (if amateurishly illustrated) original.
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.
