Space:1999 and Spider-Man 2099


Iwas happy to see some Gray Morrow covers when looking for Space: 1999 images.  I have always loved his realistic depictions, almost painterly with his pencils and inks - there's no other artist with a style quite like his.  I especially enjoy his depictions of women - He did a Zatanna Special and Lois Lane 2-issue mini-series a few decades back that I still remember fondly, those characters have rarely looked better.

Coming tomorrow is STF #2100, so stay tuned!

Oh wow, beautiful. I've been little Gray Morrow fan since I first discovered work in an old issue of Creatures on the Loose#21, featuring Gulliver Jones-Warrior of Mars. Beautiful work from an artist that nowhere gets his due or is ever brought that much in discussions about great comic book artists.

I'll leave this article I found that talks about his life and death for anyone interested:

I love the numerical synchronicity, Ross. Awesome job! :-)

Haha yeah, I'm sure i would have heard about it from you guys if I hadn't used Spidey 2099!

Although, I was surprised nobody noticed when I used Superman on STF #1938 or Batman on STF #1939...

I don't think I was old enough to send e-mails here, back then. ;-D

I once had a quartet of paperback sci-fi novels will Gray Morrow covers, all brought at flea markets or used bookstores. Those, and the TOR pulp novels of Conan, John Carter, Carson of Venus, and Star Trek (Revenge of the Romulans) were prized as much as my comic books when i was a teen!

LOL Ross, don't forget I demanded this one exactly 100 issues ago! So you definitely would have heard something! :D Love how it turned out.

And here I am, not even noticing that #2099 was approaching (and, of course, #2100 tomorrow). D'oh!

Already looking forward to #2958 (in about 2 1/2 years) featuring the Legion!
