A Distant Fan Service

icon-uk knew that I've been looking for Coleen Doran's A Distant Soil scans for a while now, so he very kindly sent in these scans from A Distant Soil: Immigrant Song. Since my knowledge of this series is very limited, I'll let icon-uk fill you in on what's what:
The story is a long and complex space opera one, involving a very decadent alien empire, a couple of human kids who may not be as human as they think, and more fluffy, beautifully conditioned 80's hair than you'll find in anything short of a Shingo Arkai anime.


The blond twink is Jason Scott, who along with his sister Liana have discovered they have some quite remarkable abilities... she appears to be an Avatar, a supremely powerful telepath who has the potential to hold the Empire together, and Jason is a "Disruptor", who does the opposite, and who can kill the aliens with a mere touch, though he can't control or trigger it yet. These are down to the fact that they are unknowingly the children of one of the aliens.





More scans to follow...

If you like her, be sure to check the (around) 2000 Power Pack mini. She drew a shirtless 16 year old Alex Power.

Thanks for the tip, César! I'm gonna check that out.

The only Colleen Doran art I saw before this was a fill-in issue of Amazing Spider-Man (somewhere in the mid-320's) during Todd Mcfarlane's art tenure on that book. I'll have to look up more of her work, it looks quite beautiful here.

Yeah, she's very generous with the fan service. Look at this piece she did featuring Mon-El & Element Lad!

Oh, Element Lad looks so cute!

The differences between him and Mon-El are noticed and appreciated.

Great Legion piece, thanks!
