So this week has already seen two rather different incidents in the world of long running manga and anime franchise, Saint Seiya. One good, the other... well, I'll get to that.

The death of Cypher at the gun-toting hands of the loser-villain "the Ani-Mator" in New Mutants V1 #60 is covered here

And now in New Mutants V2

The Team Supreme are back! (Spoilers for the next New Mutants arc) )

And speaking of cute guys (and ladies) from the 1980's in cool armour!

And so to that end, I'm going to spend the next couple of posts to showcase a couple of artists who are not only well and truly alive, but who have a vibrancy to them that re-energises me just looking at them.

Here's the first, a chap by the name of Patricio Oliver, an Argentinian artist who has a blog here and who is a regular contributor to the always worth a wander through Project: Rooftop.

He has a very stylised style which could annoy the hell out of me, and in lesser hands probably would, but these are beautiful, with a very Erté feel to it.

A purely notional (alas) New X-Men cartoon )

And a fun assortment of 1920's style New Mutants, for no reason other than the 20's were fun

So why not... )

And because I like the use of contrast - Northstar )

But this is how I first cam across Patricio's work, as he shares my abiding affection for Saint Seiya (Which was HUGE in South America, amongst other places, back in the day)

Greetings, Mortals!

Today I am saddened to inform you that we have lost another great artist. The man that we lost was probably more known for his works on Mangas and Anime Series but still he was one hardcore badass fellow. He was a master of the mild ecchi situations, one of the people responsible for bringing back the epic mythology to anime and one of the main inspirations for the CLAMP girls. Today I must inform you that yesterday (or today, considering the time zone of Japan) Shingo Araki, one of the main character designers of the Saint Seiya anime, passed away at the age of 72 so he could become one with the Cosmos. Rest in Peace, Shingo Araki (1939-2011).

I keep meaning to post samples from Saint Seiya, a 1980's manga/anime/toyline which I'm a big fan of and which was one of the spurs behind the creation of Sailor Moon (they wanted a marketable manga/anime/toyline on a similar theme, but using girls rather than boys), so here is one I've been pondering about posting for a while.... (28 and a bit pages from the 171 page long Volume 10 of Saint Seiya)

First the badass moment )

Now for the slashy part.... )

I've long had a soft spot for the manga (plus anime and toyline) Saint Seiya... The armour designs were nifty and the mythological references were great fun.

And today's lesson is that gentle /= weak )
