Here is the latest cover I did for Marvel. It is coming out in October and is celebrating Marvel Comics 75th Anniversary! http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=55071
The cool thing here was, I got to do a photobomb variant of the cover that my friend, David Finch did! LONG ago, I was a penciller/ intern for WildStorm Comics (Jim Lee’s studio) and David was a penciller at Top Cow (Marc Silvestri’s studio). Both studios shared a building and was known as Homage Studios.
So when I was given a choice to pick which cover to do a variant of, I chose Dave’s. For old times sake. This cover is a cool Homage Studios collaboration!
HAPPY 75th Anniversary to Marvel Comics!
We mentioned this happening two weeks. Marvel Party promotion. Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1. Inversion Looper. Chip Zdarsky Deadpool cover. And here it is.
Oh and there’s also a Skottie Young cover too.
The countdown to Season 2 begins!
…This is the hook for the season? Really? Not how Skye is improving as an agent, how May is adjusting, how Trip is fitting into the team, how Fitz is recovering and Simmons is coping with it, or even how Coulson is dealing with everything- we’re supposed to care how Ward is doing?
I’m excited about AoS s2, but this is the one part I couldn’t care less about, unless the answer to what he’ll become is “someone who recognizes that part of redemption is putting your own needs below the needs of the people you’ve hurt, even if they aren’t young attractive white men.”
WHY IS HE STILL ON THE SHOW
I can’t count the ways in which I do not caaaaaaaaaaare what happens to Ward, I wanna know what happens to Antoine Triplett or May or literally anyone else at all.
WHY ARE WE BEING ASKED TO CARE ABOUT THE ACTUAL NAZI. Oh wait I know why.
Do not care about Ward, either. Give me May. Give me Trip (oh god give me Trip). Give me Skye. Anything but Ward’s continued saga of manpain.
Given other casting announcements, my hope is the answer to this question is “The first person Bobbi Morse hits repeatedly in the face with a stick, on camera, that’s what he’ll become”
H.Y.D.R.A. is not a nazi organisation. It’s a secret society with some members who are nazis and for a time it was part of the Third Reich. That doesn’t make it a nazi organisation. They don’t ‘hail’ Hitler, they don’t try to rebuild or continue the Third Reich, they just want world domination. H.Y.D.R.A. even started way before Nazi Germany was a thing. Way before Germany was a thing.
H.Y.D.R.A. knows they are the baddies. And they like it. The nazis thought they were the good guys. They killed, fought, manipulated and experimented because they thought it was necessary for the greater good. The nazis didn’t even plan to build a world wide dictatorship, they honestly thought they were entitled to world domination. Their plan was world peace. That might seem weird, but they belived in peace. World peace even.
H.Y.D.R.A. on the other hand plans to dominate. Both are evil, but differently and Ward hasn’t shown any signs of being into the whole nazi thing.
But still: fuck Ward. I hope they only scene he has is in a cell getting a visit from Cap, telling him: “I’m very disappointed in you, son!”
