Talon-Lickin’ Good!

I’m kick-starting the revival of the Myrant Sketch Gallery with my fave Kirby kreation, Etrigan, the Demon, with a bit of attitude. And lunch.

Etrigan the Demon (created by Jack Kirby) about to gulp down the Kamara — the Monkey King (also a Kirby kreation) — in a restaging of the climactic moment from the Alan Moore/Bissette/Totleben Demon saga in Saga of the Swamp Thing #27.

The original sketch is 8 1/2″ x 11″ on acid-free board, drawn with markers, pen, and correctional white.

It’s $275.00 plus shipping, and seeking a new home — just email me at msbissette@yahoo.com if you’re interestd.


[Note: Myrant Comix will relaunch later this month. Though I closed the ongoing Myrant Sketch Gallery back in October of 2009, I'm restarting this venue for a number of reasons this month. More to come!]

    Wow, didn’t remember that Kamera was in the original Kirby Demon book. Demon #9 was in a “10 For a Dollar” pack that I bought when I was a kid. That cover image is burned in my brain.

    Steve you knocked another one out of the park!

    That is full of awesome sauce. I always loved your take on Etrigan. Those issues of Swamp Thing scared the crap out of the woman who became my wife several years later.

    Wow that’s lovely. Not in my price range but I wish it was. I was a regular Swamp Thing reader back in the day and I remember just being blown away month after month. I remember this story well.

    Wow, wish I had £181.16 kicking about… That’s a fantastic sketch, a great little reminder of one of my favourite series from back in the day. Love the way the Monkey King’s desperately pushing against Etrigan’s face!
