On February 1, 2013, WhatCulture! posted Sylvester Stallone: 5 Awesome Performances and 5 That Sucked.
- According to WhatCulture! 5 that were Awesome: Rambo [First Blood and sequels], John Spartan [Demolition Man], Gabe Walker [Cliffhanger], Freddy Heflin [Cop Land], and Rocky Balboa [Rocky and sequels].
- Their Choices for Not-So-Awesome: Judge Dredd [same name], Ray Quick [The Specialist], Marion Cobretti [Cobra], Jack Carter [Get Carter], and Joe Bomoski [Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!].
To Awesome I would delete Spartan and Walker to make room for Jack Carter and Deke Dasilva [Nighthawks]. To Not-So-Awesome I would delete Carter and add Nick from Rhinestone. – Craig
On January 16, 2013, SpinOff Online posted the story of how Sly Stallone went from almost being the star of Beverly Hills Cop to starring in Cobra.
Dave Wachter returns with his take on Sly from Cobra. I met Dave a few years ago and became an instant fan. I wasn’t the only one to discover Dave’s fantastic sketches! How can you not like a great guy who is a terrific artist? You can see more of Dave’s art at his site. – Craig
Alexis Ziritt makes his second appearance in my Stallone Theme Sketch Collection. Alexis is the co-founder of Fistful Apparel and the indie comics co-op Calavera Comics. When I saw that Alexis was taking sketch card commissions, I decided to get on board for a couple. I asked Alexis to pick two from Jack Carter, John Rambo and Cobra. Alexis liked the theme and decided to do all three.
You can see more of Alexis’ art here.
Wilfredo Torres makes his first appearance in my Stallone Sketch Collection Gallery. I had been a fan of Wilfredo’s art through his blog and got to meet him at MegaCon this year. Wilfredo decided to take on Cobra and produced this very cool sketch. – Craig
The piece above was drawn by Jeff Johnson at last year’s Heroes Con. Jeff is one of the founding fathers of Drink and Draw [along with Rev. Dave Johnson and Dan Panosian]. When I asked him to autograph my hardcover Drink and Draw, Volume 2, I also asked Jeff about doing a Stallone piece for my collection. Jeff was up for it and chose Cobra. He then proceeded to kill it with this sketch.
Hopefully, Jeff will be up for another Stallone piece in the future.
SFGate.com posted their choices for the Best Stallone Films along with the films that readers picked. You can see the choices above or here.
