Six Metamorpho covers

A couple of these had their colors changed before they were published but I still like the originals better. I'll start posting the pencil scans and sketches shortly. In the mean time, who knew that Metamorpho had his own theme song?

  1. Loved the second cover. Has this spooky EC cover feel to it. Did the colors not print correctly or did the final print version get changed in the coloring by someone else? Thanks for sharing.

  2. WOW. Turns out *I* knew he did, but had no idea I knew; it must be at least 30 years since I heard that, and yet it came right back. You are a font of information.

  4. Number 3 with the robot and the lightning is absolutely amazing. Was the robot an designed before you did the cover or is it your invention ?
    It's ├╝ber cool.

  5. If I remember right, the cover was drawn long before the interior so they asked me to come up with a design for the robot.

  6. Patrick: I won't mention any names but there's a dear friend up at DC who hates the color gray as much as I love it. And he gets the final word.

  7. Great covers! This shows me I don't get to the shop enough, I missed them.

    The Metamorpho song is snappy but I'm still partial to Iron Man's http://tinyurl.com/5oqaey

  8. Interesting... Ozzy Osbourne sounds really cheerful on that version.

  9. Loving the art, as ever, and also the retro cool Metamorpho tune! It's right up there with "Doc Bruce Banner, Belted by gamma rays, Turned into the Hulk. Ain't he unglamo-rays!"

  10. The fourth has a special texture ¿did you inked that or is it just the pencils? Exellent sextet.
