After a year or so, I started going back and trying to see where these Marvel characters were in their stories and I got sucked in. Mostly X-Men and Captain America. Some Avengers books and Daredevil were next on the list if I could afford them. Because of that there are quite a few Avengers that I didn't know as well or at all. The peripheral characters in the 80's and 90's like Darkhawk, Moon knight, Justice, etc... I didn't know until they were relaunched or reinvented in recent years.
I really liked how they handled Darkhawk in Marvel event called War of Kings. It made the Darkhawk a mantle or a position held, much like Nova or Green Lantern. It was introduced that he was part of a much larger, galaxy wide legacy.
This drawing was a commission I've had for quite awhile now (I know Im sounding like a broken record), but it wraps up some outstanding sketches I had from a previous con. I still have a few of these to work though from other shows here and there, and luckily some of them are Avengers characters, so I can still fit them in this month for my blog!
