Darick Robertson Sketch For DC Comics Publisher Jim Lee Art Auction To Help Comic Book Retailors Hurt By Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic! Transmetropolitan’s Spider Jerusalem!
First published under DC Comics’ Helix imprint and then moved to Vertigo. Written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Darick Robertson; a beloved run.
SPIDER JERUSALEM TRANSMETROPOLITAN VERTIGO DC Original Art DARICK ROBERTSON. So artist DARICK ROBERTSON has been inspired to do not one, but TWO pieces of art to support struggling comic stores in need via BINC! The first is this striking and spectacular shot of Spider Jerusalem from Transmetropolitan which in my opinion stands as one of the seminal works that defined Vertigo Comics! Way ahead of its time, this book by writer Warren Ellis and Darick set the standard for their collaboration and harbingered a strange and dystopian future where the Fourth Estate was often the last defense against the excesses of Presidential power. Pen, ink and wash on 11×17” board, the gesture, the lighting and design conveys it all. Just beautiful. 3 day auction. Given shelter in place restrictions, shipping will be delayed weeks! Thank for your patience. #comicbookunitedfund
