Here's a Herb Trimpe-Don Perlin page from SUPER-VILLAIN TEAM-UP #5. This issue was notable for Steve Englehart taking over the book, which had been a chaotic mess up to that point, and looking on it as a challenge to turn it into something worth reading. He did! My challenge here was to do something nice with "underwater" tones.
Here's a page by Frank Robbins & D. Bruce Berry from CAPTAIN AMERICA #191. To some extent, I tend to think Robbins has a "fun" style, though I'm convinced he was totally wrong for doing superheroes.Another page with Cap (not to mention Giant Man & The Wasp), actually an Iron Man page from TALES OF SUSPENSE #58 by Don Heck & Dick Ayers!
A spectacular Don Heck cover for THE AVENGERS #37 that went unpublished, replaced instead by a dynamic (but UGLY!!) version by Gil Kane. For the 70's reprint, that in turn was replaced by a new one by Jack Kirby & Dan Adkins (ironic as it was usually the other way around). This had so much detail on it, it proved to be a real challenge to figure out what was what. I'm particularly proud of the result!
An Alan Davis Silver Surfer page from FANTASTIC FOUR: THE END #3. Obviously, this called for more airbrush effects than usual, between the Surfer and the depths of space!
A page from 1993's SILVER SURFER / WARLOCK: RESSURECTION #1 by Jim Starlin. I've been a fan of his since his CAPTAIN MARVEL run, but I confess, I grabbed this page to color because I wanted to do something with Moondragon in it-- and nobody but Starlin has ever really done her right (for story or art)!
An oldie-but-goodie: a Matt Baker Tiger Girl page from FIGHT COMICS #50 (June 1947). This was the sexiest page of his I could find at Heritage Auction.
The Ed Hannigan-Joe Sinnott cover to SUPER-VILLAIN TEAM-UP #3 turned out to be a full-fledged "Fantasy" version in addition to a re-coloring job. For more details, see the post devoted to how it was done!
