Strength of Man
'Strength of Man' was the premise of this limited-edition portfolio for select graphic artists to create specific drawings. That was a somewhat nebulous concept that allowed for artistic freedom. I guess so, since most of the artists drew whatever the heck they wanted. Here I'm only showing 6 of the 13 participating artists, and out of this group Will Eisner came closest to following directions, Moebius is my favorite of the batch, and Bill Sienkiewicz was the most honest for disregarding the premise. The artists personally signed each of their plates.
