For those of you who have read my blog, I have been way behind on posting any updates! I have been to nine cons since my last post (Heroes Con 2015 and 2016 (Charlotte), Tampa Bay Comic Con 2015 and 2016, Florida SuperCon 2015 and 2016 (Miami), Baltimore Comic Con 2015, Magic City Comic Con (Miami) and MegaCon 2016) and have lots to share including some cool new projects!
And this blog name doesn't do justice to the new ideas I have pursued since I first created the blog. As a reminder, I purchase the blank variant covers and have artists and writers who have worked on Amazing Spider-man, Daredevil, Captain America and Thor sketch or sign their names (if a writer or a non-sketching artist). I have also added covers with Spider-man and Daredevil villains, members of the Inhumans, Fantastic Four and X-Men and various iterations of Ms. Marvel, Ghost Rider and Deathlok! Lots of fun stuff!
Since we are playing catch-up, let's start fresh with what I have achieved to date (I will try to list them left to right, top to bottom, as mentioned not all artists sketch so may just be a signature). I will add some commentary as needed!:
