I don’t read as many Marvel comics as you might expect me to, but discovering there’s a story about Galactus invading Earth, and being thwarted by the likes of Da Vinci, has me interested in finding this series.

Dustin Weaver provides today’s installment, with the alternate cover to SHIELD #1.

This is a variant cover for SHIELD #1 by yours truly.

Apparently Marvel has decided to do a black and white variant version of this issue, which, if it’s true, is pretty damn cool! I try to make my pages feel complete without color and I think my work is sometimes stronger left in black and white. It will be exciting for me to see the issue like this.

Marvel was apparently working with a earlier version of this image because this is not the final version…

  1. It’s mere opinion, but I dislike greatly this kind of ‘historical celebrity team-up’ fiction; this was why Gaiman’s 1602 worked, because he used Marvel characters to supplant several actual figures (e.g. Stephen Strange – John Dee), and only used two people who actually existed.

    I’m not able to articulate all of my exact dislikes about it, but it just feels…I don’t know…slightly disrespectful, slightly pointless, slightly foolish. And for heaven’s sake, why the big-gun famous figures that everyone knows about? If SHIELD is about secrecy, why not involve the lesser-known great creators, like Rosalind Franklin or Elisha Grey?

    (I’ve been ranting a bit more lately. Do forgive me.)
