Marvel Has a Secret Skottie Young Project Page... What Are They Hiding?
Pip pip!" Why would Rich wake up at 4AM to tell us to write about what appears to be little more than a signup form so that Marvel can market future Skottie Young products to potential customers via spam emails? Did Rich wake up from a dead sleep, fresh from a vivid nightmare about this secret[...]
'Middlewest' Volume 1 Kicks off Epic Story of Magic and Adventure (REVIEW)
Middlewest Book One is an epic adventure story from Skottie Young's very vibrant imagination, with jaw-dropping art from Jorge Corona It's a pretty timeless book, populated with epic characters and seriously stunning art. //Credit: Image Comics The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics The town of Farmington has been[...]
'Middlewest' #7: Timeless Folk Tale with Contemporary Twist (REVIEW)
Skottie Young paces out the carnage for most of the book, with most of Abel's adopted family being effected by the fracas. //Credit: Image Comics I really can't say enough about Jorge Corona's art His style is in the same league as Young's, with big, cartoonish characters and an incredibly rich color scheme from Jean-Francois Beaulieu[...]

Cyclops Marvel Animated Statue 6
This is the 19th statue based on the art of Skottie Young, and for my money one of the cutest look at his little round belly! Like all of the others, this one stands at about under 4 inches and features a detailed sculpt based on Young's popular variant covers He will cost $64.99 Check[...]
Despite Reports of Dangerous Hidden Magic, Image Previews Middlewest #1
Despite dire reports of dangerous hidden magic inside Middlewest, the new comic book by Skottie Young and Jorge Corona, Image comics is pressing ahead with a planned November release anyway and even sent out a preview of the book to media outlets Wednesday morning On the surface, Middlewest may seem like an innocent creator-owned fantasy comic[...]
Fantastic Four #1 cover by Esad Ribic
This is a genuinely good comic. It is a little frustrating that the emotional catharsis of seeing Reed, Sue, Ben, and Johnny reunited is held off for another month, and the Skottie Young strip in the back with the Impossible Man is a little too cute That said, I'm ready This was a good primer for[...]

Skottie Young statues and figures, Wolverine statues, Iron Man gauntlet business card holders…a little bit of everything.

Top and Bottom 5 Comics for June 13th, 2018: Hawkman Lives
The Magic Order #1 The Magic Order has a cliched premise, dull characters, and an unearned tendency towards brutality. Olivier Coipel makes it visually stunning, but it doesn't save the comic from this list. I Hate Fairyland #19 cover by Skottie Young 2 I Hate Fairyland #19 This book is set up around one idea: Gertrude hates Fairyland[...]
I Hate Fairyland #19 cover by Skottie Young
However, it may involve doing some more things she hates. I Hate Fairyland #19 cover by Skottie Young I read the I Hate Fairyland FCBD Special last year and heavily disliked it for its reliance on meta humor in a market that has far too much bad meta humor I decided to check back on it now,[...]
Gwenpool Marvel Animated Statue 5
The Marvel Animated statue from Gentle Giant, based on the art of Skottie Young, will be an exclusive at their booth She stands at about three inches tall like the others in the line and will feature our hero drinking a Dead Freeze slurpee The statue will cost you $65, and it actually can be[...]
Deadpool #1 cover by Nic Klein
That said, Skottie Young, Nic Klein, and Scott Hepburn's Deadpool #1 is marginally funnier and not an outright misery-fest, and I will gladly damn with fine praise in this instance. There are some good jokes in this book, and the gags aren't drawn out to fatal lengths Negasonic Teenage Warhead constantly berating Wade shows some self-awareness[...]
Marvel Animated Ant-Man Statue Gentle Giant 6
Hard to believe, but this will be the 16th statue released based off the artwork of Skottie Young and his line of Young Marvel variant covers and artwork This one in particular is based off of his variant for Astonishing Ant-Man #1 other statues in the line have included Thanos, Daredevil, Punisher, and a two[...]

The likes of Skottie Young, David Lafuente, Rob Guillory, Matteo Scalera, Sana Takeda, Paul Azacata, Adi Granov, Sara Pichelli, Phil Noto, Steve McNiven, and Val De Landro were amongst his finds. He rose to the position of Senior Vice President at the comic publisher before being the Marvel Man at Disney in China, where he worked for the past[...]
I Hate Fairlyland Special Edition #1 Featured Image
[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Cover by Skottie Young and Jean-Francois Beaulieu I didn't pick up the I Hate Image Free Comic Book Day book It didn't appeal to me It was before I was working for Bleeding Cool As such, this content was new to me all the way through. So, Gertrude from Skottie Young's I Hate Fairyland goes on[...]
Gentle Giant Marvel Animated Spider-Man Exclusive SDCC 5
One of the better statue lines on the market right now is the Gentle Giant line of Marvel statues based on the popular artwork of Skottie Young They are many statues deep at this point, and while the choices have been amazing so far, there was one character that I think everyone was kind of[...]

Pin-Trading Craziness Is Abut To Take Over Orlando At Star Wars Celebration
My personal favorite is the old "Darth Vadar Lives" mess-up pin: This year at Celebration, taking a que from Marvel and the pins they do for their booth at cons based on Skottie Young art, there will be a plethora of pins available not only in the show store, but at exhibitor booths and for trade[...]

Not getting enough of Rocket & Groot on the Guardians of the Galaxy series? Can't wait for the new film? How about a 12-episode spin off web-series featuring Marvel's favorite bounty hunting duo? The pilot episode of Rocket & Groot was released and shows the two chasing after a bounty who appears to be the[...]

Just about everyone loves the Skottie Young Marvel Young variants Just about every character from the Marvel Universe at this point has appeared on one of them, and merchandise from posters to t-shirts to pin sets have been created from the artwork I bought some of the pins at the last two SDCC's, but they were[...]
