Today we have the Colin WIlson cover to the French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tête written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson. If you think the the tough-guy on the cover looks like Sylvester Stallone, you’d be right.
See, Du Plomb Dans La Tête was the basis for Stallone’s film Bullet to the Head.
What’s interesting to note is the character (that Sly ended up playing) from the original graphic novel was drawn to look a bit like Sly as Jack Carter. When Sly took on the role for Bullet to the Head, Walter Hill (the director) opted for a different look and Sly agreed. So in the movie Sly doesn’t look like Jack Carter but on the Du Plomb Dans La Tête cover he does.
And now you have the rest of the story (as Paul Harvey would say).

June Vigants created the Sly as James Bonomo aka Jimmy Bobo from Bullet to the Head piece above. June was doing sketch commissions through the mail and although I’d never met her, I liked June’s art and decided to commission a few pieces. I wasn’t disappointed. This is the first with more to be posted!
Last year at HeroesCon Gary McKee surprised and gifted me with the sketch above of Sly as Jimmy Bobo from Bullet to the Head. What an amazing sketch and gesture from a great artist and friend.

Dave Wachter is back and he brought his take on Sly from the Bullet to the Head. 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?
At HeroesCon this year I asked Dave to draw Sly from his first major movie, the Lords of Flatbush and another piece of Sly from his latest film, Bullet to the Head. Last week, you saw Dave’s take on Sly as Stanley Kowalski, so this week we have Sly as Jimmy Bobo.
You can see more of Dave’s art at his site. – Craig
Sly Stallone as Jimmy Bobo from Bullet to the Head by Ron Salas. Obviously I’m a huge fan of Ron’s art. If you’re a sketch collector, you should be too!
Bullet to the Head is available for pre-orders now and will hit the streets on July 16th. – Craig
