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!

Better Off Ted

I wasn't much of a Man-Thing reader when I was young. I preferred Swamp Thing over at the Distinguished Competition. I think it came down to the art. No disrespect meant to Mike Ploog, but I liked the art of Berni Wrightson and Nestor Redondo more. Even the last issue done by Ernie Chan (with inks by Fred Carrillo) had much more appeal.

Also, one thing I liked better about Swamp Thing is that he retained Alec Holland's mind, while Man-Thing's Ted Sallis persona was buried deep within the mind of the muck-encrusted monster.

Shoot or Dare

These two have fought multiple times, but both know they'll only end up in a stalemate. The only way to stop the Punisher is by killing him, which the Punisher knows is something Daredevil won't ever do. On the flip side, the Punisher doesn't kill innocents, so Daredevil knows that Frank won't kill him to stop him.

She's Mighty, Man

Even though the amulet that Isis wears was supposed to grant its wearer "the powers of the animals and the elements," it was evident that her powers were not limited to that. She had flight, super strength, control over her molecular density (and of other objects), control the weather, stop and reverse time, and more. I think the show's writers and producers just made up powers which were convenient to use, depending on an episode's particular predicament. Still, it was an enjoyable show for a very young superhero fan during the 1970's. And I have to admit I had a huge crush on Joanna Cameron.

It's disappointing that in today's world, her superhero nomenclature has a negative connotation.
