Bleeding Cool previously reported on Milo Manara‘s new exhibition in Brussels to coincide with his new card game published by Freak & Chic PornHub, as well as looking at his preparatory work for his Caravaggio comic book series.
It also includes some of his Marvel Comics covers – used and unused. No sign of the infamous Spider-Woman piece, that has been bought for a pretty penny, but one of the more curious items in this unused X-Men cover featuring a feminized version of Cyclops.
UPDATE: Or at least that’s how the gallery lists her. She’s Smasher from Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers. From a 1:50 cover for Avengers World. Still, it helps them sell the original art for 30,000 Euros.
They also did similar for Cosmic Spider-Man… UPDATE: Or rather, Captain Universe, also from Hickman’s Avengers run,
The gallery quotes Manara saying “Every cartoonist should do superheroes at least once in his life… There is a realism and a passion among comic authors who give the impression that they believe in their drawings. Superheroes is a modern mythology, Olympus with its deities. These are fantasies that we really believed in Greece. ”
If anyone pops by the gallery before it closes in early January, do let us know if there are any other similar misreportings on display…
