Before deciding on my final cover design for MORE COMICS! (as seen in my previous post here) I tried out at least 4 previous versions. Having four relatively similar-sized characters alongside one large T-rex proved to be a somewhat tricky composition to settle on. I don’t usually go through so many versions of a cover, but this time around it took a little figuring out. Which I don’t mind because if I just don’t feel 100% behind an image, it’s probably not ready to go. In the end I think I wanted to show all the characters in the same scale, with a sense of dynamic energy, so that’s why I went with the final completed version.© Javier Hernandez

An homage to what’s widely considered the seminal moment in Steve Ditko’s run on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. From issue #33, when Spidey, against all odds, makes the supreme effort to lift a massive machine off his back.

My quick sketch isn’t just an exercise for me to relive that scene but really to get a little perspective on how Ditko composed that moment. At this point in the series, he and Stan Lee weren’t even talking, with Ditko crafting the stories on his own and bringing in the the finished art for Lee to add the dialogue.

This is Lloyd, one of the characters from a comic book series called COPRA. Created by Michel Fiffe, a cartoonist of considerable skill and ingenuity. Today’s his birthday so I shared this with him on his social networks.Michel published 12 issues of COPRA in a one-year period. Writing, drawing, coloring, lettering…everything on his own! And he’s now continued the story with two new issues! It’s an extremely innovative series, I recommend you give the first issue a try for free: http://michelfiffe.com/comics/copra/index.htmlLloyd © Michel Fiffe
