What better to run on a Saturday Comics Saturday than a Classic Critics Corner featuring the one and only Michael Mongello? This was the first, but by no means the last, spotlight he’s been in. Search this site for his JLA, Star Wars, pin-up work, and more.

from September 7, 2010 

Hi everyone. I’d like to take some time away from my parade of bad B-movies, the Teutuls, Noots, and traveling teddy bears to showcase someone who actually has talent and deserves some broader recognition.

Michael Mongello is the talented creator of the comic book  Jungle Women vs. Dracula as well as the versatile illustrator of many other subjects. Below you’ll find just some of his work, spanning the superhero and fantasy genres, life-like portraits, and familiar movie and television icons.

Honestly, just picking a dozen was a Herculean task, and I was not up to it. Fourteen of his pieces are here for you, but I could have picked ten times that number and not a single one would disappoint. To see more of his work, please go to his websites, linked below and in the sidebar.

Michael has already reached a higher audience and certainly doesn’t need the exposure of this blog, but he has graciously allowed me to hang some of his artwork in my “virtual gallery.” Please enjoy!

A quick look at how a sketch becomes a finished product.

The Batmobile!

And another sweet ride.

More than just comics.

By the Power of Greyskull!

Michael Mongello is the Artist and Illustrator
