As an addendum to the “Alternate Novas” from Superhero Cocoa that I blogged about the other day, check out Shane McDermott‘s “Sir Richard Rider,” who the artist describes as “the Celtic Knight with the powers of a sun or something.”
Hot on the heels of Spacetime’s Finest #2 (prints now on sale!), Dean Trippe has unveiled Spacetime’s Finest #3. And it’s available as a print! Come on, how can you live a moment longer without owning a copy of this?!
DC Comics has begun releasing the solicitations for titles shipping in December, and there was one in particular that caught my eye.

I don’t know about you folks, but I’ll be picking it up!
I’m late to the party on the Superhero Cocoa blog (“Cocoa” here standing for “Costume Coalition”). In much the same vein as Project: Rooftop site, the blog features artists doing redesigns on superhero costumes. I followed a link from Joel Priddy’s blog this morning to the site, in which he also shared his contribution (about which more in a moment).
The current assignment on Superhero Cocoa was for Nova, and was a themed assignment.
This time, back by popular demand, he will be themed. Your job is to take Nova and interpret him through a culture’s mythology. You could, for example, interpret him through Greek mythology and treat him like Apollo. (BUT, any culture can be used.)
And here are a few of my favorites.
First up is Joel Priddy’s version, which has a Japanese mythological feel to it:
And how about Pete Taylor’s WWI-aviator version?
Nifty, no? Check out the blog for loads more awesomeness!
