Martineck Marvel Overpower Cards


 Moving right along into the next multi - requested checklist, here are all the cards I drew for the various Marvel Overpower card sets. They were all base cards and I believe I have them all accounted for. If anyone thinks I missed one or screwed the list up in anyway, please let me know. 
  I don't know if there is a resurgence going on for these sets or what, but I've been contacted a lot about these cards recently. Along with which ones I did, I've also been asked if I have the originals and if I'd be willing to sell any. I know I have many of the originals. Some I've already sold here and there, some were "lifted" from Fleers offices and I never got them back, and I know of one that was lost in a fire. As for selling them, yes, I would be up for that. But, I am in the middle of a fairly tight deadline and probably won't be getting around to organizing that until I'm done in a few weeks. I will post here when I start making them available.




Thanks everyone for the interest and heres my Overpower checklist.

Google And Me; Best Buds.



   At some point during the day, every day, I'm Googling something. It pays to spend a little extra time referencing characters, getting those certain outfits, locations, or Hero-mobiles correct and looking right. During a job like the one I'm doing now (X-men Archives Card Set) where your drawing up to 50 different characters each in many different costumes, I could be on Google all day long. Add that to a big box of X-men comics for character situations and storylines and it's more than enough to knock out some interesting and accurate sketches.
   I'll admit, sometimes I do get sidetracked during a search and wind up reading about what Charlie Browns dad did for a living or get sucked into watching a new movie preview. (Mutant Chronicles looks pretty good, btw) Today, for instance, I ended up reading about Captain America

Movie rumors on someones blog and I'm staring at a pic of Cap that looks really familiar. "Hey I drew that".  It was from a card I did for the Marvel Overpower card game way back in 96 or 97. I found it again in a few more places usually in conjunction with those Cap Movie references.  I've only seen it on the card until now but this is directly from the color file and I would love to find the source to get a good copy. I don't know who the colorist was but they did a great job.  Makes me want to track down other colorists on those sets and see if I can get some color files. 
  Anyway, I fingered through the ol' filing cabinet and pulled the original. I've put up a scan to show the before and after. 


Google, where have you been all my life?
