This Halloween, comic industry cover artist Elias Chatzoudis has made sure that the kids aren’t the only ones having fun, providing a few treats in the form of several holiday themed pin-ups!
A seasoned artist, Chatzoudis has provided covers for numerous books from various publishers, including Dynamite Entertainment’s Red Sonja: Age of Chaos, Zenoscope Entertainment’s Van Helsing, and IDW’s G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
This past month, following in the tradition of artists challenging themselves to produce a piece a day throughout October, Chatzoudis treated readers to a month-long stream of Halloween themed pin-ups.
In one, the Wicked Witch of the West sits upon her throne, guarded by one of her signature flying monkeys:
Another features a demon girl with wardrobe-sizing troubles:
Chatzoudis even paid homage to the queens of solving mystery themselves, Scooby-Doo’s Velma Dinkley and Daphne Blake:
Another shows Zenscope’s Mary Medina carving up a couple of pumpkins.
Chatzoudis even shared a pinup from Elvira Mistress of the Dark #1.
When not providing gorgeous cover art for professionally published books, Chatzoudis also illustrates fan art commissions of characters from a wide variety of properties, ranging from video games, to comics, to film.
Pieces in his expansive and colorful gallery include pin-up style drawings of Bowsette, the popular Super Mario fan-character born from speculation on how the Super Crown power-up would work if used by Bowser:
Star Wars’ Rey, in an appearance inspired by her Dark Side appearance in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker:
And Marvel’s Royal Ladies of the Inhuman court, Crystal and Medusa.
One of Chatzoudis’ latest pieces, the cover to Ablaze’s The Cimmerian: The Frost-Giant’s Daughter #2, is a particular favorite among Bounding Into Comics staff:
