Comic Art Friday: The best of 2009, day two

Day Two of our grand tour through the Best of Comic Art Fridays, 2009 Edition, completes our look at this year’s most noteworthy additions to my Common Elements commission theme.

Favorite Common Elements Commission, Coed Division:
“I Hear Red Thunder”

Pencils by Lan Medina

Red Arrow and Red Sonja, pencils by comics artist Lan Medina

Making his second entry into the Common Elements gallery, Fables artist Lan Medina rocks this action-packed scene pitting the Justice League’s Red Arrow and barbarian warrior Red Sonja against an array of unseen adversaries.

Favorite Common Elements Commission, Special Achievement Award:
“Catfight of the Bands”

Pencils and inks by Gene Gonzales

Gene Gonzales summons up all kinds of awesome with his lively depiction of Josie and the Pussycats swapping musical talents with another terrific trio, consisting of Catwoman and both the Golden Age and present-day Black Cat.

Tomorrow, pinup mania reigns as we salute the best from my second commission theme, Bombshells!

And that’s your second chapter of Comic Art Year-End, 2009.

    File that Catfight CE under the category of “genius,” both for the idea and the execution.

    That Red Arrow/Red Sonja CE is gorgeous, Lan Medina at his best. I hate that DC decided to sever Red Arrow’s right arm, talk about gruesome.

    Damon: These are two of the pieces that help remind me why I keep commissioning art… and in particular, why I love me some Common Elements. 🙂
