I said I’d post some J.H. Williams, didn’t I? Here we go: the cover to Absolute Promethea vol. III. There are not many comic books I will pay $100 per collection to have in slipcased hardcovers that just reprint the original art at larger size on nicer paper, but Promethea is one of them. It was easily worth the money. You can see the Mucha influence here. Again, there are more and less Mucha-influenced pages by Williams, but this is a nice blend of the earlier, classical looking stuff, and the more contemporary emblematic layouts he’s been doing on stuff like Batwoman. Will post more by him soon, because he’s probably my favorite artist working.

This image is from Williams’ wonderful Flickr page, btw.
