It would appear that Covered has its first standard. Avengers 221 is the "Love for Sale" or maybe "Summertime" of comic covers.Sorry about the inking credit, Anthony. I just need to find some kind of credit out there. Does anyone out there know for sure if Rubinstien inked this?
only 2 marvel characters out of 8!
Rob,here's a link to the Rubenstein inking credit:http://www.plexico.net/avengers/covers/a221.htmlSteve,I freaking love this cover. It makes me very happy 'specially since some of my top favorites are on it. Plus my secret crush...Valkyrie (looking cuter than ever). Also, the issue of Superboy where Insect Queen meeets Bee Boy is one of the best comics ever created...very sexy and very weird. Lots of scenes of Bee Boy mope-ily comparing himself to Superboy.Thanks for drawing that one!p.s.- At first I thought having Conan on the team with Valkyrie might be redundant but now I see how too sword-carriers might add extra tension since they are a man and a woman.
Eventually there'll be a book collecting all these Avengers #221 covers.This one might be the most original one so far. Clever too.
Next person who does one, please add Squirrel Girl and Penny Century.
Haa! Sweeter than candy on a sunday afternoon!
"only 2 marvel characters out of 8" ... 2?? I hope you're not counting Cyclops.
Penny Century could replace the Scarlet Witch. Or Matter-Eater Lad.
The inking credit has been corrected! I thank you Mr. Vukojevich for your detective work and keen eye.
Weissman needs to stop dickin' around and draw me an Avngers comic featuring Conan and The Two Gun Kid.Also, it's 5 Marvel characters (Cyclops, Two Gun Kid, Valkyrie, White Tiger and remember, Marvel published Conan for years.)
