AWESOME! Gotta love the bold lines, sharp angles and bolts so that it's recognized instantly as hard metal that's choking Hulk. Genius!

Awesome!  I didn't think about this one going back the other direction!  Worked great!  At first glance I thought, "Now what exactly is Namor doing with that steel girder....?" and then I realized it was Magneto they were fighting! 

Magneto looks as good as he ever has and I really like Dr. Strange stepping out of the Ditko Void!

Looks like there's definitely room for one more to the right and then four more below!  I hope to see this continue soon!  Nice "Acts of Vengeance" theme.

Awesome doesn't begin to describe it - just noticed the little detail of Magneto's cape hanging on the machinery!

Plan is for six pieces total, as I understand it. Looking at the layout so far, I
think I will be running the remaining three across the top.

Love seeing the Defenders in action against Magneto. JB draws the best Magneto.

Had to edit. JB answered my question on how many pieces total there are going to be.

I love Dr. Strange's "dimension trail" or whatever you call the dimension portal under him....that is a really cool design element.  This piece is brilliant as well as the all 3 fitting together, of course....

Fantastic.  What is this setting you've cooked up for these pieces?

WOW - i'm blown away by this... did you layout all the pieces first as
thumbnails, JB? i can't wait to see the remaining pieces and who they
feature in them... perhaps a crossover with some DC heavy hitters??

-C!

Nope. Winging it, as the customer provides the cast for each.

JB responded: "I was afraid somebody would ask me that. . ."

Ha!  In that case, I say some future world, advanced technology, base of operations belonging to Kang!

Breathtaking!   I love how that metal is wrapped around the Hulk... but it ain't gonna stay there long!

I'm curious, JB... do you still have the other drawings to match up to the new ones?  If not, how are you keeping things lined up / straight?   I assume this isn't one gigantic sheet!

Thank you JB!  An amazing job and got all the elements I was hoping for (I was praying for some "metal work" by Magneto on the heroes). 

Joe did get it right as this was a play on the "Acts of Vengeance" theme. 

So we have 3 parts down and 3 to go.  Lots more heroes and villains coming.

I have to say, while it's very nice to see these pieces and I'm happy that Mr. Byrne is getting steady work out of commissions, it just highlights how much I wish we could get through all the bullshit and just have more Marvel comics illustrated by Mr. Byrne.

==========================================

No DC characters in this 6-parter.  Even though I am cooking up a 4-part DC thing for next year.

General question for commissioners or JB (there may be some commissions in my future):

When you ask for a commission do you specify just the characters or do you give more detail about the background, etc.? Does JB have a preference?

These pieces are sweet, btw.

Great one JB.  Jason, what are you thinking about when it comes to framing?  One giant piece or separate frames?  Why not a large commission?  I know it's expensive for a big one all at once.  I really love them.
