Inspired by The Lost 100-Pagers and Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues, I've decided to create my own take on comic book covers. These will be all-original art illustrated by myself. Thank you and a good afternoon. Excelsior!

Mutant Relations

The concept above is based on what was supposedly Chris Claremont's plan to have Mystique and Destiny (Irene Adler) be Nightcrawler's actual parents. Supposedly, the two were lovers and Mystique shape-shifted into a male form and impregnated Destiny, and their offspring was Nightcrawler. Of course, the idea was nixed, because Mystique producing sperm by transforming into a male was deemed too far-fetched.

Son of the Serpent

Zuma, despite being a villain, is one of the most iconic characters in Philippine comics. Created by Jim Fernandez, he first appeared in the novel Aztec, illustrated by Elmer Esquivias. He then appeared in numerous other novels/series, most notable among them was Anak ni Zuma (Spawn of Zuma), which may be one of the longest-running serials in Philippine comics history. He even starred in two movies, plus his own title in the 1990's, flip-flopping from villain to hero and vice versa. Recently, Jim Fernandez announced on facebook that he and longtime collaborator Hal Santiago are working on a new Zuma comic.

Enter the (Daughters of the) Dragon

The very first issue of Power Man and Iron Fist I ever read was issue no. 101. It was Assistant Editors' Month and most of Marvel's titles were a bit unusual. For this one, it starred Misty Knight and Colleen Wing instead of the titular characters, who were out of commission courtesy of Impasse, the villain of the issue. I liked how they were as capable as the guys, maybe even more so.
