Unpublished Entries

September 13, 2010

Here are two unpublished covered entries that didn’t fit submission criteria for one reason or other.

I’ve stuck the original covers next to the covers so you can compare.

Wolverine #1, Frank Miller

I gave wolverine his blue and yellow costume because that’s the one I grew up seeing him in most. I also wanted to make him look completely mad and psychopathic. I reckon I could do better. I also like the idea of him having thin claws rather than giant meat cleavers, it seems more likely he’d be able to store those in his forearms. It’s all fantasy I know, but there is something called suspension of disbelief.



The Thing # 6, Ron Wilson

The Thing cover was too much of a parody, in fact it is a parody. I made all his gangsta paraphernalia Fantastic Four and Thing themed because I thought it’d be funnier if it had some relevance.

Japanese Spiderman

Ok, so silly videos are a guilty pleasure of mine.

Here’s one I found a short while back and have been itching to share.

I love the little disco bada-bum bada-bum things they have in the catchy opening music that’s half the fun right there.

The other half is the great story behind why this was made and why spiderman has his own robot (as if he’d need one – pah!).

Marvel made a deal with Toei that meant for 4 years they could do whatever the sam hell they wanted to with him. Bloody genius is what it is. There need to be more giant robots on tv, it’s something that I find programmes distinctly lack these days. We live in dark times indeed.
