Demon Sketchbook part 7

This will be the last posting of "Demon" sketches (unless I start finding more artists whose work I like and who are willing to draw Etrigan for me). This final group starts off with one of the more unusual ones -- a drawing by Jaime Hernandez of "Love and Rockets" fame, depicting one of his characters (I think that's Maggie) as the Demon. (Oddly, I remember being a little disappointed in this one when I first saw it... but now I love it.)



And that one is followed by yet another Kevin Eastman drawing... a dramatic Duo-Shade board rendering.



Here's a very cool version of Etrigan by none other than Rick Veitch...



... a nifty stylized take on the Demon by Jeff Bonivert (who TMNT fans might remember for his "Muscle and Faith" TMNT story)...



... and last, but not least, a sweet one by monster master Eric Talbot.



I'm glad I dug this book out of the archives... it's really fun to look at this artwork. And I'll admit it makes me a bit nostalgic for what were surely simpler days... -- PL

hey that one by Kevin looks based off the Matt Wagner style in the 4 part miniseries i have..about a witch who summed Etrigan for him to serve her for something..but he turned on her once she released control and he squished her homunculus. it was hilarious to me. :D

I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, so I'll go ahead and ask my question. A pal over on the Technodrome was sketching TMNT characters, and he posted a pic he'd drawn of Complete Carnage. When I saw it, not really knowing anything about CC (sorry, I don't), I actually thought it was Etrigan. Now to the question: Was Complete Carnage a homage to Kirby's character Etrigan the Demon?

And a follow up: Have you seen DC Classics Etrigan Figure by Mattel? It's very nice.

As "Complete Carnage" was a creation of Kevin Eastman's I can't say for sure if his appearance was an homage to Kirby's Demon... but given how much of a Kirby fan Kevin is, I'd say it is a distinct possibility.

As for the DC Classics Etrigan Figure by Mattel, I just ordered one. It does look cool -- PL
