TALES OF SUSPENSE #80 recreation by JoeJusko
TALES OF SUSPENSE #80 recreation
Catching up on a lot of long overdue commissions. This is a painted recreation of Jack Kirby's Tales of Suspense #80 cover. I try to stay as faithful to the original source material as possible, so it's always a challenge deciding what to keep and what to change. I kept the Red Skull very close to the original cover as Kirby's figure was as dynamic as one could get, but redrew Cap with accurate, more realistic anatomy that falls more in line with my style. Really happy with the final amalgam. 
DEATH WISH COFFEE Presents #1: Odinforce by JoeJusko
DEATH WISH COFFEE Presents #1: Odinforce
Cover to a promotional comic by Ron Marz and Rick Leonardi for the Death Wish Coffee Company. 
GODZILLA!! by JoeJusko
Store exclusive cover for IDW and 1st Print Comics in Rochester, NY. Huge Big G fan and another check on artistic my bucket list. Acrylic  11"x17" Toho licensing took forever to decline the original sketch leaving me 2 days to redraw and paint the cover. All things considered I'm really pleased with the painting. 
SILVER SURFER #4 Recreation by JoeJusko
SILVER SURFER #4 Recreation
Always fun to do these. I try to stay as close to the original covers as possible to retain the feeling of nostalgia people have for them.  13"x20" Acrylic
I've been away from deviantART for a bit due to being buried under a new 135 painting MARVEL MASTERPIECES trading card set. It's been over 20 years since the first one (1992) and I've always wanted to do a follow up. Obviously I can't post any of the art that Upper Deck hasn't released but there are a few pieces in the attached article link. Having a blast and can't wait for everyone to see them! Release date is early 2015. I'll announce a solid date when I have one. Hope everyone is well, and I'll be back in force when this job is done in January!…

You should read my fanfiction short story called 'The Marching Mooks', which is based off on the short story called 'The Marching Morons', by Cyril M. Kornbluth.

I don't know if you check these comments... ( be a full time job to , I'm sure ;) ) .. But if by chance you should ever look down these and notice mine... I just wanted to say ...

Your Frankenstein meets the Wolfman artwork is both great and inspiring! :clap:

So much so , it inspired me to create my homage to both an awesome movie , and to some old school cartoons! :D

Like I said , I don't know if you'll ever see this... but if you do..

This artwork by myself started from your inspired piece :nod:

Frankie Meets Fangface by vladen13   ..... Thanks! :)

Hey, Joe! How you going?
I came across the Frank Frazetta Fantasy Illustrated and there was this story by you called "HellRiders" that apparently you've never finished.
Are you ever going to finish it? Is it finished but you didn't have the chance to publish it or you just got over it and that was it?
It would be awesome to see the whole story one day.
