Ramon Villalobos is thrilled to be part of Marvel Comic’s “What If: Age of Ultron” series.

He’s the illustrator of the second of a five-part series, teaming up with writer Joseph Keatinge in this issue entitled “The Secret Armor Wars!”

In this alternative universe, Villalobos, who is a 2005 graduate of Manteca High, drew up Keatinge’s script in which aging Spider-Man teams up with Ghost Rider, the Incredible Hulk and Wolverine in pursuit of the Forgotten Iron Man.

He drew up Ghost Rider with “a goofy look” and had fun with Sea Captain Wolverine and Zen Hulk.

Issue No. 2 was released on April 10. Villalobos was at several locations including Al Comic’s in Stockton on April 10 to sign copies with pages of his art work.

In Keatinge, he worked with an award-winning comic book writer and editor. In 2010, Keatinge won the Eisner Award for Best Anthology for his work on Popgun Volume 3, and was also honored with the 2008 Harvey Award Popgun Volume 1.

In this ‘What If’ series, Peter Parker is a retired superhero forced back into the action as Spider-Man due to circumstances after a layoff of over two decades.

“He’s been a family man, has a belly, and he’s pieced together a mixed-match of his old (Spider-Man) costumes,” said Villalobos.

He was one of five artists picked by Marvel to do the series.

Marvel’s ‘What If? Age of Ultron’ is available at Al’s Comics, 1847 Pacific Ave. Stockton or by clicking on to www.amazon.com.
