The ever-awesome Joey Spiotto has a gallery show at Gallery 1988 in Hollywood with 50 new works inspired by some of his favorite movies, music, TV shows and video games—turning them into Little Golden Books. As part of the show, and in cooperation with Marvel, he created a one-of-a-kind framed record album (which you can see above), and people can come into the gallery or go to and purchase a $5 raffle ticket. When his show closes they’ll draw a name and that person will win the artwork and all of the money from the auction will be donated to Child’s Play Charity

Pretty awesome! 


I enjoy coffee. Don’t you? So do these animals!

Hey! I say heck no it’s not too old. I say your friend is wrong! I say if you have the talent, and the desire, and the ability to get it done—do it! Don’t let someone else hold you back. Believe in yourself and make it happen!

Color decompositions of comic covers. 

A few months ago Eric Hinton, a developer at the New York Times, spoke to the engineering team at Marvel about the Times’s Fashion Fingerprints project.  Earlier this week I got the opportunity to speak to the Times’s R&D group and blatantly stole their idea created these images as an homage to their work.

Each of these images represents a slice of comic covers (sourced from the Marvel Comics API). Each cover is reduced down to 64 colors and then arranged into a column representing the proportion of each color used in the cover.

  1. Current Hawkeye series
  2. Avengers vs. X-Men
  3. Civil War
  4. Current Captain America series
  5. All covers from 1960-1969
  6. All covers from 1990-1995
  7. All covers from 2010-2012
  8. All covers from Uncanny X-Men (1963-2012 series)

The last one shows the impact of printing technology - the covers go from a small number of bright colors to a larger number of muted colors over the course of the run.

Yo, cant find the post where you taco-bout it but i was wondering who painted the mural at marvel HQ and where can i find a high res of the updated mural? K-thanks-bye.
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:


That’s by the mighty Marko Djurdjević and the piece was painted for our Heroic Age initiative a few years back. It was split into 6 (I think) variant covers for different issues. And then we released it as a big poster.

The version on the wall at Marvel HQ is a really high quality print of the piece. Rad, right?

hey there, I just stumbled over a picture that you've posted of two Marvel The Art of Captain America books. I live in germany and I've been looking everywhere, online as well, and just can't find them. So I wanted to ask where you got them and if you dont mind telling me how expensive they were. Thanks a lot, Esther
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:


The photo above is actually of only one book. It’s a hardcover and the slipcase that protects it. 

I actually don’t own a copy. I was just looking through a copy for some research on a project at work. I work at Marvel. 

You can order it from Amazon, it looks like it’s around $40.

Hi! I don't know if you could share the link, but I think I saw covers of the Hulk sporting an Abe Lincoln beard (goatee? idk) and another one was him signing a scroll stuff? Were those for a new Hulk series? I can't seem to find it on the Marvel website. Plz help
agentmlovestacos agentmlovestacos Said:

Those are a series of variant covers to Indestructible Hulk #11-#15. That’s the S.M.A.S.H. Time arc and the art on those covers is by Mike Del Mundo.

Classic Transformers box art

These Transformers images bring me much joy. They remind me of being a kid. They were posters as well as box art, IIRC. So rad.
