Matthew Long said...

These are really cool Mike, the ones that stand out for me are Thor, Venom, Sandman, Thing looking back, and Silver Surfer.

Nathan Hayes Boyd said...

LOVE the Blob! He's so happy!!

Great job! I really enjoy your take on our classic comic book heroes. I'm a huge fan of your Captain Marvel series.

Hey Mike,

I have picked up a few on eBay already, and missed out on one or 2 as well.

I will keep my eyes open for more. Thanks for posting this

Wow dude, these are sooo awesome!!!

Fernando Sosa said...

Michael How are you? i hope you be fine.
The reason why I am writing again is because, in truth I have always enjoyed their Herobear from someone who spent his comic when I worked in an animation studio in Argentina.
You made me return to my origins with his work again and rediscover how much he enjoyed doing drawings for children.
Let me transfer you a question Mike: How I can integrate somehow astonished The Factory?
I would like very much indeed be in your group of friends of the comic for children.
A greeting and we are reading.

You know I always dig your style. I have to agree with Fernando: I'd love to work with you!!

TORI CAT said...

Your work is amazing!!
I know you must get comments like this all the time, but i am so inspired and in love with every thing your do.

I have been a massive fan of Hero Bear for many years now. Has the story ever been finished?
Iv been longing to know what happens after Tyler dissovers his grandfathers secret.

I love your style and eye for detail.

Thank you for being such a great inspiration!!

Best wishes,

Tori

Beautiful work and so inspiring.

Best Wishes,

Tori

Cool cards!

Crab Orchard Comics said...

Mr. Kunkel - we at Crab Orchard Comics have just reviewed issue #2 of Shazam and it is outstanding! In this review we look at the theological and religious themes that are brought out in this issue. These are great themes that you bring out - and you do it IN A COMIC BOOK! We think this is wonderful to help children think deeply - while they are having a great time enjoying your artistry! For our review of "The Magic (& Theology) of Shazam, issue #2 click on our website at www.craborchardcomics.blogspot.com Again thank you Mr. Kunkel for producing such great socially redeeming artwork for kids! May many, many artists follow in your footsteps here. Take care!

I sae your comic of Superbear and friend and i like it so much!!!!!!

Patrick Kochakji said...

Hey Mike,
These are awesome! I gotta track some of these down.
Cheeks also did some of these marvel sketch cards. They're really cool as well. What a sweet gig!

Hear No Evil said...

I have tracked down a total of 5 cards. I got Spider-man, Power Man, Moleman, the Blob, and a Thor (which is different than the Thor you posted above).

Did you do any Artist Proof Commissions for anyone? If so, do you have any of those scans to share with us?

I would love to get my hands on some more! It would be cool to have an Iron Fist to go with my Power Man, or even a Fin Fang Foom!

Are you participating in MM3?

Sorry for all of the questions. It was a very cool project, and you did some really great cards!
