The Original Cardboard Sketches of Eisner Award Winning Dave Johnson
Dave Johnson, the artist behind the beautiful Superman Red Son and those gorgeous 100 Bullets covers has long been a favorite artist of the staff here at the Isotope, and we couldn't have been happier to get to help launch Atomeka's Dave Johnson Sketchbook with our very own exclusive Isotope Edition and an in-store appearance by the man himself back in the summer of 2004.
With handfuls of cardboard box sections at the ready, sharpies in hand, and pipe clenched firmly in his teeth, Johnson whipped out amazing sketch after amazing sketch which he handed out for free to those in attendance. The Isotope scanner ran hot trying to keep up with and document Mister Johnson's sketching prowess. While not all of Mister Johnson's sketches were recorded before the eager fans ran home to frame their very own Dave Johnson Originals, a selection of ten of his best have been preserved. And now the archive has been opened to the public and these sketches are available to peruse on-line at your leisure.
