Oh well, at least MJ was fun to draw. Several titles are getting Mary Jane Watson variant covers and I decided to design my own for spider-man 2099 because that book misses out on a lot of cool variants and it look like it won’t have an MJ one.
I mashed together Miguel’s new costume and MJ’s spinneret costume. The pose is an homage to the cover of the very first issue of spider-man 2099.
Ah, Action Comics 1! The first appearance of Superman, and alongside Detective Comics 27 one of the most homaged and parodied covers of all time! But what is the story behind this image? Is it just a demonstration of Superman’s strength for the readers, this being his first appearance and all? Or is it related to what’s going on in the story? …The second one.
It begins with Clark working up the courage to ask Lois out on a date, only for some guys trying to claim dibs on her because they’re creepers.
Clark then hangs him from a telegraph pole by his trousers. So yeah, the Action Comics 1 cover is related directly to Superman’s first meeting with Lois AND is setting up the thing of him saving her from an escalating series of threats.
