We read on the great magazine site, It's Nice That, that the Angoulême comics festival started on Thursday, and one of the artists highlighted was Jim Woodring, someone we recognize and have always enjoyed his black and white works but especially his full color pieces.

We love the idea of minimalist reinterpretation because we enjoy seeing how an artist can strip icons to their barest elements and still be recongnizable to a mass audience. Enter Marko Manev's series of minimalist Marvel posters, which includes icons such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, The Thing, Silver Surfer, and more.

Liam Brazier is an illustrator and animator that bounces between his blocky, geometric style and less rigid, traditional hand drawn work as well. His portfolio shows a diverse range of talent and style, with a cohesive and well developed eye for combining colors.

French artist Mr. Garcin has taken what seems to be a whole lot of time to create a Spider-Man eye by collaging hundreds of Spider-Man comics together. We can only assume the comic book art seen here will get Spider-Man fans extremely excited before the new Spider-Man film drops in 2012.

As it turned out, Juxtapoz interviewed Pekar a few weeks earlier for a feature in the July 2010 issue of the magazine, talking to Pekar about his newest collaborative endeavor, the Pekar Project.
