Hand-drawn Joe Quesada poster illustrations from the promotion of Marvel's Luke Cage. Based on the namesake Marvel Comics character, the series followed Cage, a former convict who fought corruption in Harlem after a government experiment left him with unbreakable skin and superhuman strength.
Comic book artist Quesada, the series' executive producer and EVP Creative Director at Marvel Entertainment, created these two splash-style illustrations for a poster introducing the show at San Diego Comic-Con in 2016. One illustration is rendered in graphite on Marvel-branded comic book art board, while the other is an ink photocopy of the same illustration printed and taped to the same style board. Both are signed and dated "2016" by Quesada. They are in good overall condition with a tear on the top of the photocopy and edge wear throughout. Dimensions: 16.5" x 11.25" (42 cm x 28.75 cm)
