Marvel: Dangerous Divas themed pages consisting mainly of sketchafexes from RA's MDD release. Initially I was not going to collect much from this release since I was expecting mostly "static character" sketches,. I wanted to continue to collect what I did with Marvel 70th, in that I was going to find sketches that told the "History of Marvel Comics", and merge those into that Gallery. I did find some of the Martineck "puzzles" that were "history-making" . However since I had not collected many Tony Perna sketches, I decided to make a page of his; as usual, I got carried away .

For this web site, I have found it better to scan the entire 9-pocket (a.k.a. page), rather than to put each sketch up as an individual scan. Besides for those of you who know me, I am very obsessive about how my pages are arranged .

Currently I have 4 "full" pages of RA's Dangerous Divas sketchafexes. Below, I give a brief summary of what is in each page, just to the right of the thumbnail for that page.

Dangerous Divas Page 1

Page 1: Miscellaneous Babes

Here are some of the Divas sketches that "caught my eye" early-on :

  • Buddy Prince - AOA Jean Grey
  • Buddy Prince - Quicksand
  • Buddy Prince - Lady Octopus
  • Joe St. Pierre - Phoenix vs. Firelord.
    This is #3 of 15 of his 'Fate of the Phoenix' series.
  • Buddy Prince - Kitty vs. Nimrod
  • John Czop - Sue Storm
  • Roy Cover - Heroes for Hire (all-female version)
  • Bill Pulkovski - Enchantress
  • Lui Antonio - Scarlet Witch

To be honest I would Trade any of the sketches from this page for other sketches that I would be "more interested in" .

Page 2: More Miscellaneous Babes

Here are more Divas sketches that "caught my eye", but these fit more into the recent theme I have been collecting ... sketches that tell something about "The History of Marvel Comics".

  • John Czop - his sketches were "Scarce" for MDD so I was happy to be able to find 3 more that I liked
  • Jon Hughes - X-Men cover recreations. I was very pleased to be able to find at least 6 of these !!

Dangerous Divas Page 4

Page 4: Tony Perna's Avenegrs Babes

This page shows 9 of the Avengers babes that Perna drew, though I guess the one in slot 7 is actually supposed to be Mystique (morphing into Warbird ?).

MDD Page 5

Page 5: Martineck - Miscellaneous

Note: This page is cloned from M70 Gallery Page 4a. I wanted to show the two primo MDD Martineck 2-panels in this gallery.

Since I had an "extra" M70 Martineck, and since I like some of the MDD Puzzles ... I prefer to call them two-panels ... I decided to make this page . In November 2012, I was able to complete the page by adding 3 "timeline" Martineck's from Marvel's Greatest Heroes.

Here is my result:

  • Man-Killer & Titania vs. Spider-Man, She-Hulk and Thing(?)
  • Avengers #214
  • Sue Storm, Lilandra and Galactus, from 'The Trial of Galactus'
  • 1985 Secret Wars 2
  • 1975 Beast joins Avengers
  • 1976 Moondragon joins Avengers
  • 1980 Jarvis cleans-up mansion after attack by Masters of Evil
MDD Page 6

Page 6: Martineck: Landscape-oriented

Note: This page is cloned from M70 Gallery Page 4b. I wanted to show the two primo MDD Martineck 2-panels in this gallery.

Those who know me knows that I don't like to mix portrait-oriented (p-o) sketches with landscape-oriented (l-o) sketches in my pages. This causes me to pass on acquiring some nice sketches . But I like the Martineck's M70 sketches, and then some of the MDD Puzzles so much, that I decided to try to combine them into an 8-pocket page .

Here is my result:

  • 1963 Avengers team (per issue #1)
  • 1964 Masters of Evil (as introduced in Avengers #6)
  • 1983 New Mutants #1
  • 1993 Thunderstrike & US Agent
  • Heroes for Hire (all-female version)
  • Red She-Hulk vs Green She-Hulk
