Marvel asked me to be part of their WTD certified month: practically something line 20 main titles in April will have a variant cover that is all about Howard the Duck interacting with iconic images of our times.
I was given a list of possible options and went with the classic still of Harold Lloyd hanging from the giant clock :) (see above)
This was MUCH fun to draw :)
