A fun set of covers for Eddie Berganza. Formerly my first
assistant editor boss, he's now boss of the whole Spitcurl
For cover 627, I photographed myself in jockey shorts. I'd
considered posting the reference photo, but it's far too embarassing.
628 was a Matt Wagner cover. He also did a Wonder Woman and
For 629, I photographed my wife half naked. This one was
much more fun to shoot than 627. Unfortunately, DC
has nixed this cover! So this may be the only place
you get to see it.
630 is my hand and me as Superman. I don't look at all like
Clark Kent, but I'm too cheap too hire a real model.
631 was a reference nightmare. I can only hope and pray that
the Arabic writing says something close to what I intended.
632 was crazy easy.
633 went well. In the design sheet for the two kids, it said
that the costumes were the same color as the kids. So I gave
them caucasian skin toned suits. It turned out that the kids
are purple and green, so I had to recolor them. Sheesh.
634 was supposed to go more smoothly. But after I inked the
cover, it turned out that the Daily Planet had been redesigned
in that very issue. So I had to redraw the whole building.
It was a bother, but it did allow me to see the pencils by
Lee Bermejo. Lee is the next Gene Ha, mark my words. He's
got me a-quakin' in my boots, folks. The kid is good.
