Just because the annual entertainment extravaganza Comic-Con will be a little different this year doesn’t mean that pop culture fans can’t get in on the action and have just as much fun – without the long lines. Comic-Con@Home is open to everyone and for the first time, fans don’t need a highly coveted badge to get into the exhibit hall to get their hands on the famous Comic-Con exclusives.
Upper Deck is proud to offer fans a limited edition, Comic-Con@Home exclusive piece of art by world-renowned artist Dave DeVries, who spent countless hours crafting the “Arrival of the New Mutants” premium print. Collectors and fans can find the exclusive print numbered to just 100 pieces on UpperDeckGallery.com for a limited time.
Channeling the dark aesthetic of the New Mutants, DeVries delivers the fan-favorite characters, blending contrasting aspects of seven unique figures in this special limited-edition Comic-Con@Home release. Mirage’s soft and ethereal projections are centered and surrounded by Cannonball, Karma, Sunspot, and Wolfsbane in action stepping out from the mist.
This detailed illustration also includes fan favorite characters Magik and Warlock. Magik brandishes the Soulsword, while a large Warlock looms in the background contrasting against Mirage’s ethereal projections in all its techno-organic glory, creating a wonderfully complex illustration.
“I’ve loved art from the time I was a little kid – especially comic books. When I got older, I actually had a chance to draw my childhood heroes – and get paid to boot! It was a dream come true” said DeVries, the talented creator of Arrival of the New Mutants and many other powerful comic illustrations. DeVries, who utilized his childhood passion to become a prominent member of the comic art community, is proud to have his work featured as a rare piece for what will be a unique year as comic fans celebrate Comic-Con from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
At 24 inches high by 18 inches wide, the exclusive print will make a great addition to your home or office and will certainly be a topic of conversation during your next video call with co-workers or clients!
