Impulse and XS, by Ethan Van Sciver. WV Pop Con 2013.
Every time I look at this one, it’s so beautiful that it makes me want to cry a little. Two of my favorite characters, by a favorite artist. I was really torn going into the convention - knowing Ethan’s sketch rates for a single figure, I wasn’t sure if I could afford a double. It’s a Legion sketchbook, so it had to have a Legionnaire in it - but if I couldn’t afford Bart and Jenni, I would’ve maybe gone with Timber Wolf as a back-up.
Fortunately, the price was just within the bounds I’d set for myself, and I am so glad it was. Ethan was the regular artist on Impulse for about a year - I missed Bart’s enormous feet. XS is, of course, his cousin - one of the Reboot-only Legionnaires, and along with Bart, one of the characters I miss most in the DCU right now.
