A few weeks back I finished another SUICIDE SQUAD cover commission. I finally got around to cleaning up the 600dpi scan of the cover and I uploaded it to my website. I figured I'd post it in my DA gallery as well.
This cover features the original SUICIDE SQUAD members (from DC Comics original Brave & the Bold series) in Paris, squaring off against the prehistoric terror, GOROSAURUS (from the film DESTROY ALL MONSTERS)!! The Arc De Triomphe has been torn in half already, and our are just arriving on the scene. The Squad is wearing Bell Rocket Belts-- nifty 1960s era tech that really worked and still exists! You can see one of the Bell Rocket Belts on display at the Udvar-Hazy Center branch of the SMITHSONIAN AIR & SPACE MUSEUM, in fact.
I really enjoy drawing the Suicide Squad characters. They're always fun, and since they are always fighting giant monsters near famous landmarks and monuments, it's always a challenge to figure out an interesting layout that tells a clear & exciting story, while maintaining a good sense of scale.
Sure wish comics were still only 10 cents!!
Hope you enjoy!
By the way...Bill Cox is the client who commissioned this piece. I hid Bill's first name in this drawing someplace. See if you can find it!
