Signed. Highly Recommended. A wonderful new sketchbook of heroes and (more so) heroines, many sans clothing, and all beautifully rendered. I’ve said before that I really think Jay is a brilliant illustrator–he combines photo-realism and fantasy, using texture and stippling that would make Virgil Finlay proud. And his ladies would make Dave Stevens or Frank Cho take notice. Wonder Woman, Elektra, Supergirl, X-Girls, Dejah Thoris, Sheena, Red Sonja, and many others. 3-Wishes, 2018. Mature Readers.

Description

A wonderful new sketchbook of heroes and (more so) heroines, many sans clothing, and all beautifully rendered. I’ve said before that I really think Jay is a brilliant illustrator–he combines photo-realism and fantasy, using texture and stippling that would make Virgil Finlay proud. And his ladies would make Dave Stevens or Frank Cho take notice. Wonder Woman, Elektra, Supergirl, X-Girls, Dejah Thoris, Sheena, Red Sonja, and many others.

There is also a nice set of fourteen pages, each with four close-ups portraits of heroines–fifty six in all. There’s a reason that Anacleto is one of the go-to artists for comics cover art, variant covers, and special convention commissions, which I imagine many of these could be. He is one of the best of the good-girl artists today. He can nail it, as he proves in this new collection. Full 8 1/2×11 size, signed on the cover.

I would have given this my Highest Recommendation, but the high price puts me off a bit. Outstanding material, twice the size of previous sketchbooks of Jay’s, but $40 is a little steep, in my eyes.
