THE GREATEST TALENT EVER ASSEMBLED FOR ONE STORY!
THIS IS THE BIG ONE! In celebration of Marvel's 80th Anniversary, we have gathered together the greatest array of talent ever to be assembled between the covers of a single comic book! Names from the past, from the present, and even the future! Every page is filled with all-new work from this cavalcade of comic book luminaries!
There is a mystery that threads throughout the Marvel Universe - one that has its origins in MARVEL COMICS #1 and which unites a disparate array of heroes and villains throughout the decades! What is the Eternity Mask, and who is responsible for the conspiracy to keep it hidden? And what new player will make their startling debut as these secrets are peeled away?
Featuring the entirety of the Marvel Universe of characters!
Creator Matt DiMasi describes a portion of his process for producing this fabulous art work:
"I have a custom frame built with tile board built in and then free hand draw the entire cover in pencil. The art is never traced or projected. I then special order glossy colored ceramic tile and shatter it. Each piece is individually glued on with tile mastic. When completed the piece is then grouted with sanded grout, buffed, and scraped. The piece is finally custom painted using car paint with clear coat. Each shattered mosaic image requires hundreds of hours to complete!"
The cover image for Marvel #1000 is taken from the original mosaic art of Matt DiMasi, described above. This original mosaic is 35 inches by 52 inches, including frame. It weighs approximately 70 pounds. A picture is included here, for scale purposes, so you may see how grand this original art piece is! The best part? This original mosaic piece of art will be coming to www.diamondgalleries.com!!!
