Today’s Web Shop Giveaway Item by Mark Heike
SORRY, THIS ITEM IS NOW OFF OF THE BOARD AND UNAVAILABLE. LOOK FOR ANOTHER NEW GIVEAWAY ITEM LATE ON THURSDAY THE 16Th.
Today’s Giveaway of the day is a piece of unpublished, never seen original pencil artwork for a proposed cover design for FEMFORCE #37 (circa 1990) drawn by cover artist for FF #158 and Crypt of Horror Volume 13, John Nadeau!! This finished-pencil drawing of RAD and the Golden Age MISS VICTORY locked in a life-or-death struggle was done as a possible cover for the issue (in which John N. drew the FEMFORCE adventure), although Will Meugniot actually ended up drawing the cover that was used on the book. Nadeau has drawn a number of fan-favotite FEMFORCE tales over the years, including “Alliances” in FF #31, “War” (the middle part of the Shadow of the Shroud” story arc) in FEMFORCE #35; “Shark Bait” in FF #42, “Beauty and the Beast” in #43, and the SHE-CAT story in AC Annual #2, to name a few. John went on to pencil a number of titles at Acclaim/Valiant, and a long run on the Star Wars titles at Dark Horse Comics. He’s also working on a new Stormy Tempest alternate cover for an upcoming issue of FEMFORCE. This hand-drawn, one-of-a-kind piece is done in carbon pencil on 11″ X 16.5″ single-ply Bristol board, and is a great action shot showing the tension in the RAD/Ms.V struggle.
