kevin wada cover!

anonymous asked:

food for thought: has Kraven been involved in the conservation-slash-obliteration of rare species long enough that he learned to draw when taxonomy and identification relied on illustrations? is he famous among zoologists and initially hired by zoos to collect specimens because of his fame from contributions to science. are his early field journals preserved in a museum somewhere. is Kraven the Hunter a respected academic author. these are my questions.

i think what we’ve really learned from all this is that we all want to read a pulp adventure comic from the 30s about kraven’s adventures punching bull elephants and drawing pictures of weird mushrooms he found and cataloguing the effect those weird mushrooms had when he just straight-up ate them to see what would happen

Mary Jane Watson variant for Spider-Gwen #21 is out now!

Here’s a quick little roundup of all the sketches I did for the cover.  Initially we went much more fashiony for the idea.  We still wanted to be inspired by Spider-Gwen’s AWESOME costume, but I gave them everything from street wear to haute couture.  Eventually they reined me in and we decided to do a reimagining of Gwen’s look.  I’m really happy with where we landed (but bottom left is my fav of all the iterations :P).

Comic fans, Iceman #1 is out today - Marvel’s first solo ongoing series featuring a gay leading man. It’s penned by the amazing Sina Grace and even features a gorgeous Kevin Wada cover. Now, seeing as it’s Pride Month, the timing couldn’t be more auspicious, yet Marvel is still dragging it’s heels in publicising it, despite having rammed the grossly offensive Hydra!Cap and Secret Empire insanity down our throats for months.

Evidently this is so they can blame the lack of sales on a lack of appeal for an LGBT lead and inevitably scrap the title - but prove them wrong! Pick it up if you can, take a chance on dear ol’ Bobby and show the powers that be, that diversity sells and representation matters.

The paperback edition of Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On will hit shelves in May 2017 and it will have this new cover! Comic book artist Kevin Wada designed this beautiful cover. You might recognize his style because he also designed the Six Of Crows cards. Personally, I think this cover is very fitting. I absolutely recognize Simon and Baz in his design. If you haven’t read the book yet, read the blurb below.


Simon Snow is the worst chosen one who’s ever been chosen. That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.

Half the time Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he sets something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here - it’s their last year at Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

Carry On is a love letter to love stories and the power of words - to every ‘chosen one’ who ever had more on their mind than saving the world…

not only is iceman fucking great because of the story it’s telling, but the pacing of every issue, the clever exposition in that first one through bobby’s dating profile, the show-dont-tell attitude of other aspects of his character like his relationship with his parents, the parallelism with the young mutants he saves, the way the story is structured so that you need to know only the VERY VERY BASICS of modern xmen canon to understand bobby’s story. the way every goddamned issue ends on me wanting the next! FUCKING KEVIN WADA IS DOING THE COVERS.
