Poison Ivy

If all things have gone according to plan, then blogger will have automatically posted this in absentia.
You may remember a while ago, I posted about a cool blog called covered where the idea is that you rework a classic comic cover in your own style... again, if things have gone according to schedule, then my version of Batman 181 should be visible on Robert Goodin's covered blog right now! So, I'm now free to reveal to you good folk the full image...


Here again, for reference, is my copy of the original cover from June 1966 with art by Infantino and Anderson.


Remember to cross your fingers for me today, as I'm at the Birmingham International Comics' Convention and I'll be trying to meet up with editors and professionals who might be able to help me onto the all important first rung of the professional ladder!

Great version - lovely colours and texture compared to the colouring of the original (although it was good for the time!!).

And yes it did go live over there, for completeness sake it is here.

Careful kev, sentient blogs, where might it end...?! Your cover is so much stronger than the original. A faultless piece of work in every respect!

And good luck with the breaking into comics...for what it's worth i don't think you're that far away from it!
