More Wolverine Anime-Style

I wasn't really intending on revisiting the Marvel Anime guys until I got some artwork from X-Men and Blade for the second part of this series.  As I started actually watching Wolverine, I realized that (like many anime) this show uses pans to help cut animation costs.  Also, this show especially likes using these pans over Wolvie himself. 

Some screencapping and some stitching and now we've got more pics of Wolverine.  The pics below all come from the first half (eps 1-6) of the anime.

Metal Gear Solid

There are times when I think I posted something before but it turned out I hadn't. Today's post is one of those times. Somehow, I went all this time without ever featuring Solid Snake or the other guys of the Metal Gear Solid series. I guess HFG's 601st post is as good a time as any to remedy this. More art from various games in the series is below.

Flashpoint Cyborg: A Micropost

I really like this alternate cover of Flashpoint #1 penciled by Ivan Reis that features Cyborg.

Three Dimensions (Part Three): Video Game Guys

Today's post is the third part of the Three Dimensions series, focusing on statues, toys, and dioramas.  This time around, the focus is on the guys of video games in non-virtual form.

This statue of Vega from Pop Culture Shock shows the Street Fighter hottie unmasked:

Emperor Aquaman

Flashpoint is the current major event happening in the DC Universe, one that paves the way for the much talked about reboot of the entire DCU.  All of your favorite superheroes are different in the world of Flashpoint, including Aquaman. 

Emperor Aquaman is the name of the mini-series dealing with Flashpoint's version of Arthur Curry.  While today's post features artwork from that series, I've also included some art of the character from the main Flashpoint series and the Hal Jordan mini-series.

Adrian Syaf did the pencils for the covers and interior artwork from Flashpoint: Emperor Aquaman issues #1 and #2.  The alternate cover of Flashpoint  #3 was penciled by Ivan Reis.  The interior art from Flashpoint #2 was penciled by Andy Kubert.  Finally, the interior art from Flashpoint: Hal Jordan #1 was done by Ben Oliver.
