    C'mon Dani, you're a cast member since the beginning. Quit hiding behind the Jen. (and honestly, I expected Hippolyta to be taller.)

    If they hurt the hawkdawg I'll drop the book.

    Don't push it Fraction!

    His name is Pizza Dog

    Get it right or pay the price.

    Fraction said on his tumblr that he promises two things: the dog won't die, and Clint and Kate won't get involved romantically.

    He did, however, say that you and I will get involved romantically, Centipede Damascus.

    Fraction said on his tumblr that he promises two things: the dog won't die, and Clint and Kate won't get involved romantically.

    He mentioned in the podcast that he wrote in Pizza Dog (canon name is apparently Lucky?) the night after his own dog died. There's no way he's killing off that dog.

    Original name was "Arrow"

    Clint's reaction was priceless.

    He said it with his eyes.

    Something about those faces throws me off just a little bit

    I love the coloring though!

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    I wish Marvel would take a chance and throw enough money at Amanda Conner to have her draw a few issues of Captain Marvel.

  • JoolanderJoolander Registered User regular
    Cap looks so friendly there

  • CrimsondudeCrimsondude Registered User regular
    Showing a lot of Chaykin influence.

    Another Amanda Conner variant. This one is for X-Men #2

    I like the X-Men cover by Connor a lot better than the Captain Marvel one.

    Holy crap you guys, the 8-bit variant for Superior Foes is incredible:

    And here's my favorite cover from Marvel's September solicits:

    Avengers A.I. #3, by Mike and Laura Allred.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    Also this cover has hidden rewards.

    Hawkeye #15

    I'll start you off; the left-most column contains "Gruenwald".

    That Andy Suriano cover made me realize that I want a comic book in the Samurai Jack artistic style.

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    Check out Rex Libris, sometime. It has a similar look to Samurai Jack, and is great, and the first issue's free on Comixology.
    Rex Libris wrote:
    The astonishing story of the incomparable Rex Libris, Head Librarian at Middleton Public Library, and his unending struggle against the forces of ignorance and darkness. With the aid of an ancient god who lives beneath the library branch, Rex travels to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in search of overdue books. He must confront incredible foes, such as powerful alien warlords who refuse to pay their late fees.

    Skottie Young variant for Mighty Avengers

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    Man, when it comes to simple curb appeal/design sense, Marvel's covers put DC's to shame.

    Man, I could put every single one of those covers on my wall as a poster.

    Marvel needs to get off their butts and sell all their covers as posters!

    is Hulk traveling through time Quantum Leap style?

    Brandon Graham's local comic shop asked him to do a sketch cover for Infinity.

    yhWvdKf.jpg

    I like his little nonsense edits to the cover text. And the skull-faced duck on Death's apron.

  • Centipede DamascusCentipede Damascus Registered User regular
    you know what would be awesome is if Marvel could get Brandon Graham to do an A+X story like Adam Warren did.

  • MunchMunch Registered User regular
    While I'd love that, it'll never happen. At best he may just do a fancomic or something. Speaking of Graham, I tend to really like the covers of his books.

    Like, this Multiple Warheads cover is an old Chinese take-out menu, that he edited.

    OBJHj0v.jpg

    This King City cover is a picture of his girlfriend, if I recall correctly.

    T7CgqHe.jpg

    And most of the Prophet covers tend to be these weird landscapes, that have no real bearing on the story.

    BIwe3UK.jpg

    I really respect his inclination to just be weird. And I like that he's admitted that his friends draw better covers than he does, so he usually just asks them to do it.
