Today’s abstract piece is entitled “Ensorcelled” and is homage to both the genius and talent of Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz during their collaborative efforts on the old Marvel Comics series “The New Mutants.”
Amazing word choice and gorgeous artwork paired together to give one of the most expressive comic book lines of the 80s era.
If you get the chance, buy the Demon Bear saga. The rings and lines used to show the form and eyes of the bear were the inspiration used for this creation.
The “Magik” in the title is derived from Illyana Niklovich Rasputin’s (Colossus of the X-Men’s little sister) as her powers are what ultimately aid in the defeat of the “ensorcelled” beings that served as their adversaries.
The last piece of the trifecta comes from the great 70s band ELO. All three conjoin to make today’s entry the special memorial that it is.
