Silver Surfer Saturday: Esad Ribic

Silver Surfer - Requiem Promo Art by Esad Ribic

Esad Ribic was the artist on Silver Surfer Requiem a few years ago, and he has also worked on a number of other Marvel mini-series (Loki, etc).  I’ve always admired his art—but I think I like these paintings even more than the Requiem series.  The Silver Surfer flying upside down—out of Earth’s atmosphere into the stars—is an awesome concept.

Now I have to admit—I was a bit fooled by the second picture.  I thought it was a separate painting, but now I realize it’s just the first painting flipped vertically.  Perhaps the colors are tweaked and the bottom is cropped.  Nuff said.
