CORPORATE TAKEOVER:
Iron Men Cover Marvel

In April, many Marvel covers drop their own respective stars in favour of a re-imagined Iron Man By Design variant. And who wouldn't? Done by a veritable army of top illustrators like Skottie Young, Adi Granov, David Finch and Marko Djurdjevic, the resulting 'twists' are a sweet way to add to May's Iron Man 2 hype, while giving deserving books a crack at the some of the stark-raving fans the blockbuster's liable to stir up.

For many of the concepts, it's a straight-out crime they have to be kept to just 'cover images'. My pick of the bunch CHRISTIAN NAUCK's variant to Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth #10; 'Cave Man' Iron Man, is so well thought out, it screams for a little bit more exploration and action! For a type free version and heaps of other hot artwork, check out Christians blog Sketch Fu, after the jump!

  1. I look forward to DC doing this if/when they ever make an Aquaman movie...

  2. I know - isn't it one of those really great ideas steal-able ideas? It's unity and refreshing too... as for how people can re-envision 'Aquaman' well that would be awesome...
