The Zen invasion continues throughout the month of October, Comic Attackers!

This time around for The Wacky Month of Zen event, we take a look at some awesome Zen images; starting with the top 10 art pieces of Steve Stern, co-creator and head writer of the character, and followed by a few more special images of the blue alien, including one that was produced by a staff member of ComicAttack.net! But first, let Steve Stern’s top 10 countdown begin!

And finally, I leave you with a gorgeous shot of the Zen Vinyl Model Kit from Inteleg International. The sculpt was inspired by Jae Lee’s cover featured above, and was designed by Shawn Nagle, who also did the Spawn vinyl figure.

If you dug this article, be sure to stay tuned about the Zen Intergalactic Ninja Rising art showing happening in Los Angeles sometime in the near future, where a plethora of stunning Zen art will be displayed. As details become available about the event, we’ll keep you aware of them here at ComicAttack.net! Also, Ken Meyer Jr.’s piece is up for sale, so if you’re interested in purchasing the original, contact him at ken@comicattack.net!

Until next time fellow Earthlings!

    Ah, wow. Some of those are really amazing. I like the Heavy Metal piece, and the Bill Maus piece.



  2. Yeah, some of that art is way sick. And I’m a huge Jea Lee mark. I may just have to go find those issues he did, even if they were only covers.



  3. It’s awesome to see all these different takes on Zen in one place! I love it. I’ve followed Zen for a while, and I’m so glad to see this character getting the recognition it deserves. Great series!!



  4. I agree 100% Josh!
