The Remake/Remodel art threads on Warren Ellis’s Whitechapel forums are always hit or miss for me. (The quality and level of creativity at Dean Trippe and company’s Project Rooftop is a much more consistent, for my money.) That said, sometimes he strikes a rich vein, as he’s clearly done with this week’s Superman thread.
The brief this time out was simple.
You are an artist/designer. You have to put together the cover for a comic called SUPERMAN. It is issue 1 of this book.
You have been told that Superman is a man who dresses predominantly in a shade of blue, and wears a red S symbol. You know nothing else about the character.
The cover must include a logo and the text THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE DARING EXPLOITS OF THE ONE AND ONLY SUPERMAN.
And that’s it.
Some of the artists who have weighed in so far have really knocked it out of the park.
Good lucking stuff, no?
