Retro Luke Cage & Iron Fist by Urban Barbarian

I already posted this on DA but this would be my dream book right now! This is some Teaser Art for a Retro Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daughters of the Dragon limited series for Marvel Comics. [ with Sabretooth and Dazzler, co-starring! ] We're talking late 1970's Cage and Fist here! Of course I would have to sneak Shang Chi into a panel or two - maybe Stallone style, a'la Staying Alive...

I commented enough love on DA, so I'll just say;

Love the Stallone reference, best part of that movie. I'd kill to buy the page with those Shang-Chi panels, ha.

Declan Shalvey said...

It's fantastic. or, as i like to say.... DANtastic.

damon said...

ow super cool i would love to see that movie or read that comic

Dan C said...

Absolutely brilliant. I can actually hear seventies music playing in the background as I look at this. Love the zip-a-tone, too... and that Colleen Wing is outta sight. Great job.

Ken O said...

Fantastic. It would be an instant buy for me if I saw it in the stores.

Urban Barbarian said...

Thanks you guys! I'd love to see it happen too! Let's all cross our collective fingers and click our heels! I'm not sure that will help, but at least we'll get 2 seconds of exercise today.

Doug Dorr said...

I'd buy that book. I love the attitude.

William Owen said...

Hell and damn that's cool.

Craig Zablo said...

I's buy the book in heartbeat. Bruce Lee as Shang Chi. Stallone as Stallone. Redford as Iron Fist.

What's that? Oh, yeah. Sorry. Didn't think you'd catch the Stallone thing.

Urban Barbarian said...

@Craig - I dunno if I could actually put Stallone in there! ;) Happy Birthday Craig!

Kyle said...

Points for Bronson. <3

Craig Zablo said...

Thanks Dan!

Krayola Kidd said...

I'd buy it.

Michael Lapinski said...

Yep - all cool but Colleen is the best part of this.

Urban Barbarian said...

@Michael L - Colleen is generally the most boring of the crew, so I thought she could use some jazzing up! ;)

Sketch said...

I've seen this one at your DA site before and love it :) You should throw in the Sons of the Dragon, White Tiger, The Hand, and Hammerhead for fun ;)
As for Stallone ... why not just make a new character called "Sly"? Or maybe use him as inspiration for The Punisher? ;)

Urban Barbarian said...

@Sketch - The Stallone thing is really just a way of referring to his cameo in Staying Alive with Travolta. I was thinking Shang Chi could shoulder check him as they pass on the street or something. Just a little in-joke. Thanks for taking a look at it!

Hey, thanks all you guys for checking it out!

No Point Buck said...

(Cue the bass line.)Uptight,All Right and Outta Sight! And it's got Bronson! Beautiful, baby. Just beautiful.

Studio B Media said...

I agree with everyone. I wanted this book YESTERDAY!

Who do we target at Marvel to get this ok'd?

Urban Barbarian said...

@Studio B - Anyone and everyone! ;) Mark Paniccia for starters! CB Cebulksi! Any of them! All of them! Whoops, I went a little crazy there for a second. My apologies.

Ramón Pérez said...
