Published on October 12th, 2011

If your going to New York Comic Con this weekend, make sure to stop by and check out  Mahmud A. Asrar. Take a look at his amazing artwork over at Artist Alley table V17. You may know his work for Dynamo 5 and Star Wars Jedi -The Dark Side. You also may have seen his artwork last month in the amazing Supergirl number 1 for more on that book check out Susan’s review.

Recently, Asrar has been posting early New York Comic Con pre-show commissions, and I can’t stop and looking and falling in love with his artwork more every time. I think the man is amazing. I, myself am not a big fan of the Steampunk look, but there’ something amazing about how does it. Check out the following steampunk versions of Red Monika, Batgirl (Stephanie Brown), and Supergirl.

I know a lot of fanboys and some fangirls think that J. Scott Campbell and Michael Turner are the best around at drawing the female form. In my opinion, I think Mahmud A. Asrar is one of the best comic book artists. He understands what drawing a sexy woman should look like and does not make them look anorexic. Personally, I am a big fan of Jean Grey, aka Phoenix, from the X-Men comics after I saw these commission I was blown away is not just his line work it also his use of  colors. That really make an impact in is artwork.

Asrar.  I would love to have some original art from this amazingly talented artist, and if you like his artwork make sure to check out Supergirl #2, as it come out next week (October 19, 2011).
