ICFD Cover of the Week - 24th March 2008

Yeah, delayed, I know. Here in the UK we have two Bank Holidays around Easter, effectively giving us four days away from work. I used them to the full... just not here. Hope everybody had a great Easter weekend.

This week's cover is from Overkill number 23, from February 1993. It's a Carl Critchlow cover, featuring Motormouth and Killpower.

Again, a really nice cover done in oils (If only Marvel US had gotten their heads around that concept sooner...). I really love seeing Marvel UK characters given a three dimensional feel, and this is a great example of this. Of all the characters in that early 90s era that were pumped up to the point of near explosion Killpower was one of the few who actually had a reason. They built him that way.

I miss those two.

A note to Paul Cornell and Alan Davis (As the two writers currently writing Marvel's British characters) these guys are available... ;-)
