This is the third cover commission I've illustrated for Bill Cox, featuring the original "Taskforce X" SUICIDE SQUAD! I really had fun on this one because the Squad is pitted agains THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS! Karin Grace sports a Bazooka and Rick Flagg is packing an M2 Flamethrower! Jesse Bright is riding into action on a Hiller Flying Platform, and Dr. Hugh Evans glides in style with a Bell Rocket Belt! The Hiller Flying Platform and Bell Rocket Belt are a tip of the hat to the previous two SUICIDE SQUAD commissions that I did for Bill. A little continuity never hurts.
This was pencilled on bristol board and was primarily inked with SuperBlack India ink and a Raphael Kolinsky Red Sable brush.
