G.I. Joe Art - Tristan Kelly & Nick Wentland

Gepubliceerd op 8 september 2023 om 09:00

Het is denk ik de eerste keer dat ik een "G.I. Joe Art" artikel over 2 artiesten heb gemaakt. Maar de enige G.I. Joe Art die Tristan Kelly (Tristan Alexander Kelly) en Nick Wentland (Nicholas Wentland) maakte, hebben ze volgens mij samen gemaakt. šŸ˜ŽšŸ‘‘šŸ”„

Kelly op de inkt en Wentland voor de kleur. En Glenda, hierboven samen met Satan, die verdient wat extra liefde, dus daar starten we dit artikel mee. 

Het is een exclusieve Cover voor G.I. Joe - A Real American Hero #256, welke tijdens de "2018 COIL Con 9 - Midwest G.I. Joe Toy and Comic Convention" te krijgen was, in 3 gelimiteerde varianten wel te verstaan! Speciaal voor de Con laten maken door TriCon en Roma Collectibles, via Broken Icon Comics. Deze vind je als eerste in dit overzicht, zowel de Virgin prints als de Cover met Trade Dress. De covers met hun aantallen:

  • Scarlett & Storm Shadow (750)
  • Glenda & Satan (500)
  • Ninja Force Scarlett & Ninja Viper (250)

De variant met Scarlett & Storm Shadow is voor 5,- U.S. Dollar vandaag de dag nog steeds te koop bij Roma Collectibles! šŸ”„šŸ”„šŸ”„

De prints van deze Virgin Covers vond ik nog op Hoardar.

De schets vond ik op de ArtStation pagina van Tristan Kelly. Daaronder ik ook nog een aantal andere zwart wit inkt illustraties van hem. Op de Facebook pagina van Nick Wentland vond ik de ingekleurde prenten, met verschillende varianten per karakter. Sterker nog, ik vond bij Wentland meer verschillende illustraties dan ik aan inked versies bij Kelly kon vinden, maar dat mag de pret niet drukken. šŸ˜Ž

Als kers op de taart een door Wentland ingekleurde Cover voor Callsign: Longbow. Die wilde ik jullie niet onthouden. 

Jammer dat ze de afgelopen 5 jaar niet meer G.I. Joe Art hebben gemaakt, want dit smaakte zeker naar meer! šŸ”„šŸ”„šŸ”„

Yo Joe! šŸ‘ŠšŸ½

Scarlett & Storm Shadow 

Als eerste dus de Virgin Print, dan hieronder de illustratie in inkt en vervolgens de Cover met Trade Dress. 

 

YoJoe.com schreef het volgende over de drie exclusieve covers, welke in eerste instantie als Virgin illustratie werden gepresenteerd:

"Exclusive G.I.Joe A Real American Hero Issue # 256 covers for 2018 COIL Con 9 - Midwest G.I. Joe Toy and Comic Convention. Extremely limited, with three variants! WOW! Press release below via ROMA Collectibles and Broken Icon Comics. #YoJoe!

Rare Toy-Inspired G.I. Joe Variant Covers to be Released at COIL Con

Marietta, OH - Two Ohio and West Virginia mainstays, Tricon: West Virginia's Comic Con and Roma Collectibles, have teamed up with IDW to release a set of rare G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero variant covers at COIL Con in Dayton, Ohio on October 20th. The covers, for issue #256 (Sept. 2018), will feature art based on classic, international, and rare toy variations on a set of three increasingly limited covers.

Bridging the gap between the die-hard G.I. Joe toy collectors, and comics aficionados, these covers feature the popular characters of Scarlett and Storm Shadow, along with their lesser-known, highly collectible, repaints and variants, some of which have never before been featured on a G.I. Joe cover.

Produced in extremely limited numbers, the "Classic" cover features Scarlett and Storm Shadow sporting their iconic '80s look (limited to 750 copies), while the "Argentina" variant (limited to 500 copies) features the blonde Glenda, Helicopter Co-Pilot, and the red Ninja Satan. The rarest of the variants, limited to only 250 copies, one of the shortest run for a G.I. Joe variant ever, features Ninja Force Scarlett and Ninja Viper. Ninja Force Scarlett has not graced a cover since the 90s, while Ninja Viper is one of the most coveted and sought after repaints of Storm Shadow. With pencils and inks by Tristan Kelly, and colors by Nick Wentland (TMNT, Army of Darkness), the covers are sure to be hit with fans of the comics and toys.

Online reveals are soon to follow, with online sales available after their debut at COIL Con.
