Check out this fabulous Supergirl commission I just got from Archie artist Dan Parent! I have been wanting a Parent commission for a while, hoping to add a Betty/Kara sketch to my collection.
As I have said countless times before when discussing my collection, I have three sort of categories of commissions I try to get.
The first is artists that are famous for or attached to Supergirl - Jamal Igle, Jim Mooney, etc.
The second is artists whose style I really like - Ethan Van Sciver, Stephane Roux, Brian Stelfreeze, etc.
The third is artists who will have a different sort of take on Supergirl - Scott Wegener, Alex Maleev, etc.
And of course, artists can overlap in these categories. I love Jamal Igle's art and he is connected to Supergirl. I love Alex Maleev's style and he would give an interesting take on Supergirl.
Parent falls mostly into the third category although I love his art for the sweet simplicity of it. His style seems tailor made for an all ages teenage Supergirl book.
Anyways, a good friend of mine, who knew I wanted a Parent commission, was in Florida for MegaCon and saw this piece for sale and picked it up for me. So know it is hanging on the 'wall of fame', a bright and sunny Supergirl striking a pose.
I really love this piece as an interesting addition to my commission collection.
