Eric Shonborn covers X-Force 1

Original cover by Rob Liefeld; Marvel 1991. Eric Shonborn's website is here.


  1. They have feet! Amazing! Great work, Eric.

  2. ....and proportion. Ill never look at liefeld character the same again.

  3. I think the hardest part of completing this piece must have been having to look at the original cover while adapting his version.

    After looking at any Liefeld work for more than a minute at a time, will compel the viewer to poke their own eyes out!

  4. Anthony Vukojevich says:
    Great job, Eric....I wanted to do a version of this but you beat me to it.
    I guess I'll go browse the Tarot covers.....

  5. Damn - I was working on a version of this cover as well! My Domino even had an eye patch going on too.
    Great job Eric!

  6. Yep, I was gonna tackle that one too!

    Great job though, Eric... love the re-imaginings of the characters...
    especially GeriatriCable!

    And Ryan, there's still plenty of time to do this cover for a C2E2 exclusive print! Eh? Maybe? You're already guaranteed one buyer! ;)

  7. Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

  8. I was fortunate enough to see the original and I gotta say the detail is astounding. What a great piece!
