    Comic Book Marketplace (1991) 110A

    The theme of CBM #110 centers on those comic artists who use the medium of painting for their covers and interior stories. Since the beginnings of comic books in the 1930s, this has been a medium in which the artwork was always done in ink with a brush or pen, with the coloring added in the printing process. But in recent years, artists like Alex Ross, Scott Hampton, Joe Jusko, David Mack, John K Snyder III, Steve Rude, Bill Sienkiewicz and John Van Fleet have been creating fully rendered paintings for their covers and interior pages. And then there's Carl Barks and Alex Schomberg, who, after a lifetime of creating ink art, turned to painting in their retirement to create paintings for fans. Don't miss an intriguing look into a highly specialized area of comics creation, along with the usual great CBM features.
