EIGHT YEARS AGO TODAY

     The variant cover for CABLE #4 is an example of an editor trusting Djurdjevic's judgement. Here is just part of what he had to say about this cover in MARVEL ART OF MARKO DJURDJEVIC, "There was so much religious imagery already in the series concept that I was wondering why nobody else had tried to take a religious theme to the cover." He also points out that the cover is a tribute to his Greek Orthodox heritage.

8 YEARS AGO TODAY

     Four years ago today Djurdjevic had only one new cover ship.
     This composition looks deceptively simple. Two things editors say about Djurdjevic is that he is constantly expanding his artistic knowledge and that he doen't takes shortcuts. A fight scene on a comic cover is an easy sure-fire winner but Djurdjevic uses his craft to make it an above average slugfest depiction.

5 YEARS AGO TODAY

Ahh. The good old days when you could go to the comic shop and be treated to three new Marko Djurdjevic covers:

INCREDIBLE HULKS #628
NEW MUTANTS #25

and a character variant for FF #3.

8 YEARS AGO TODAY

   Four years ago Marko Djurdjevic had four new pieces of artwork ship.
    His variant cover for DARK TOWER: THE LONG ROAD HOME #3 is a "Peril from Off Canvas"  composition that can be traced back to the pulps. A man is firing two revolvers while falling backwards. This is the rare cover that does not appear in THE MARVEL ART OF MARKO DJURDJEVIC
    For the second time in three weeks Djurdjevic was tasked with adapting a classic Kirby Cover into a Secret Invasion cover. For MIGHTY AVENGERS #13  all he had to do was convert Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Giant Man and the Wasp into Skrulls for the second time. He also Skrullifies the Enchantress, the Executioner, the Melter, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Rick Jones for the first time.
     The variant cover for IRON MAN #1 is what Djurdjevic calls a "classic Warren Simons cover" because "every time he launches a book he asks me to draw the main character fighting hundreds of other characters." Actually it is Iron Man battling a dozen and a half A.I.M. agents.

     Djurdjevic's effective cover for THUNDERBOLTS: REASON IN MADNESS depicts Norman Osborn and Venom each looking menacing in their own distinctive way.
