  1. Yours makes more sense than the original. Did you ponder this cover when you were a kid?

  2. It is really great. I only wish you'd found a way to include a readable logo and price tag.

  3. Micro-Spidey in the corner cracks me up.
    It's a great take on the original...Hank Pym's world falling apart....his friends turned against him. Your cover version really captures the vibe of the story. Very cool.

  4. If the logo was a tad higher (so as to be more readable) this cover would be perfect.
    Still tho, this is easily one of the most impressive covers on this blog.

  5. Is it too late to fire Bob Hall?

  6. This is my favored Covered submission in a while! Captures the spirit and is real hawt and is even kind of cartoony or something like that.

  7. Oooh, that's nice. I like how it's not a completely obvious parallel but a more creative take. Congrats, mr artist.

  8. Easily my favourite concept on the site so far, and an amazing improvement on the original cover in nearly every regard.

    So much implied motion and story in this, it pops right off the page. Love the conical composition too, and the subtle blinding colours and lighting, extremely effective.

    Get this man onto doing professional covers right now.
