COMMISSION: NOVA Cover Recreation

Did this for a great collector Rob Shalda who was a pleasure to work with.



Here's the original by Carmine Infantino


It was a wacky cover to begin with, I had three goals with it--
1. Make the nightmare creatures more nightmarish
2. Make Yellow Claw more threatening
3. Give Nick Fury a bit more presence

I also added a boot tread to Nova's boot-- I kind of hate the generic boots of the era.  I've got a lot of respect for Infantino and I had a lot of fun with this piece.
