NOT MARVEL NOW! Blonde Phantom by Nick-Perks NOT MARVEL NOW! Blonde Phantom by Nick-Perks
NOT "MARVEL NOW" - One of four spoof covers I did for "Marvel NOW" titles that *aren't* being published.
Four?? Well, I was on holiday and couldn't choose...

Blonde Phantom was another title I had never heard of before (actually maybe Byrne mentioned it in She-Hulk).
I think this is my favourite of the four covers - I caught the 1940s pulp hero feel to my own satisfaction. And isn't it an interesting idea? Captain America is frozen in ice believed dead; All of the other heroes are in some way removed from the scene; WHO can protect America from the machinations of the Red Skull? Who, except... Blonde Phantom!

Pencil on paper, scanned and completed in Smoothdraw3.

I love the classic feel to your cover - instant 1940's pulp era. But the twist here is the powerful female instead of the languishing love interest or victim often found on covers from that era. Another wonderful piece :)

Thanks Steve - that's what I like best about it too. A hint of the EC horror comics which were on their way...

Awww c'mon... we had WEEKS - and I was on holiday! I stopped myself at 4 ;)
I think it might also help that I don't do this professionally - it's pure pleasure (hopefully)
