Mike Ploog! and Werewolf by Night

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Watched Ralph Bakshi‘s Wizards last night, in anticipation of the 35th anniversary DVD/Blu-Ray re-release tomorrow (March 13). The last time I saw the 1977 animated feature was probably the only time, in theatres around the time of its release.

One thing I discovered on watching it again was the awesome art by Ian Miller and Mike Ploog; Miller did backgrounds and Ploog did interstitial art that set up and helped tell the story.

It was good to be reminded of Ploog, who was one of the best of Marvel’s stable of ’70s artists. Check out this cover from Werewolf By Night (and what a title!).

      Yeah nice pages! Ploog is one of the most underrated of Marvel artists from that era.

    Mike Ploog has been working on GOLIATH for over 3 years and it is finished and in the final stages of production. Mike considers it the best work that he has ever done.
