Marvel/Hasbro 75th Anniversary Variant Covers

28 Aug

Today was a pretty cool day! A few of the variant comic book covers I worked on that were previewed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con were released officially online here here and here!

The reaction was pretty much completely positive and I can’t wait to walk into the comic shops around town in October and see something that I had a hand in creating right there on the shelves.

I produced ten covers in all, photographing Hasbro’s action figures from their 6″ and 3 3/4″ lines and superimposing them into the positions featured on classic Marvel comic book covers. I had a lot of fun with each of them but my favorites are the Guardians of the Galaxy team cover, the X-Men #1 recreation and the one with Red Skull holding the Cosmic Cube.

Marvel Super Heroes: What The–?! Episode #2

15 Jan

Woohoo, second episode! Created back in 2099 2009, this episode allowed me to become more familiar with animating M.O.D.O.K., who became kind of like the (gigantic, ugly) face of Marvel: What The–?!. A few ‘firsts’ in this episode: The first appearance of Deadpool in What The–?!,  AND our first celebrity guest voice: UFC fighter Matt Serra as Wolverine!

 

A lot of great bits in this episode, written by the What The–?! crew of Sean T. Collins, Jon Gutierrez, Peter Olson & Jesse Falcon. Deadpool and M.O.D.O.K.’s interaction is gold, Wolverine’s custom “Daredevil Origins: Wolverine” movie poster still cracks me up, and the musical finale was awesome, thanks to composer and fellow video editor Jason Harvey. While scripting this episode, I remember being involved in a brief discussion regarding the Cyclops/Emma Frost/Cable scene; whether it was more disgusting to imply that Emma was breastfeeding a fully-grown Cable or that she was still changing his diapers. After a vivid point was made by Jesse Falcon, we chose to go with breastfeeding.

Here’s a little behind-the-scenes peek from our “recording booth” at Marvel HQ when Jesse recorded his M.O.D.O.K., Deadpool and Wolverine lines for this episode. What you don’t see is the large group of employees from Marvel’s Brand Assurance department (with whom we shared the office space) peeking over the cubicle walls trying to figure out what the hell we were doing with all the yelling and weird noises.
