Thursday night, at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, the epic blacklight prints of Barry Geller and Jack Kirby’s Lord of Light finally got a showing in their element. Meltdown created a dark room lit only by blacklights and featuring several prints. We’ve still got a bunch of the prints you see here in the Heavy Metal store, but quantities are limited.
Those present were amazed at the vivid colors (special thanks to colorist Mark Englert). On Instagram, illustrator Satine Phoenix (@satinephoenix) wrote, “Epicness in black light is happening at @meltdowncomics right now!!!” Tattoo artist Dave Richardson (@electrictomb) wrote, “The decorated wall squares and rectangles at this show blew my mind!!!! #KaBlam One of the most amazing displays of art I’ve seen!!!!!”
Thanks to Heavy Metal CEO Jeff Krelitz and show co-curator Quang Le for snapping these pictures of the unprecedented display.
