Modern Master of Mainstream Comics, Arthur Adams, has been contributing variant cover art for each issue of marvel’s big Summer event, Original Sin. Actually, each cover is a piece of the overall gigantic illustration featuring what looks like literally every Marvel Super Hero ever created!(…don’t quote me on that..but, it’s certainly a lot of characters!) The piece is stunning in it’s scope, and detail, which is really just another day for the likes of Arthur Adams.

Arthur Adams is a self taught artist, and he blew comics fans away early on with his distinct, highly detailed pencils & inks. He began working on such titles as Longshot, and New Mutants Special Edition for Marvel Comics back in the mid-80’s. Adams created his own comic, Monkeyman & O’Brien, published by Dark Horse in the 90’s, and his mainstream comics work has continued to increase in demand, especially with the recent explosion of special variant covers.

You can read more about Arthur Adams illustrious career, and see more of his art on his website here. His Facebook fan page is very active, and perhaps the best place for the latest news.
