City Of Heroes: Marvel Preview: New Ultimate FF Cover & Poster!

Readers who recall the initial version of the cover/poster published in MARVEL PREVIEWS #2 and with the December 2003 solicitation materials may notice there have been some changes. When the image was first illustrated for solicitation, Hitch was just referencing notes from Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada and conversations with series co-writer Mark Millar. The artist didn’t get to see the first pencil work by series artist ADAM KUBERT and Brian Bendis & Millar’s scripts for the first full story arc until after the image was completed. Bryan Hitch picks up the story from there”

“I did that first cover before I felt I had a comfortable handle on the characters beyond their basic looks,” explained Hitch. “And given what I’d seen of the work on the book so far, I felt I could have done better. Whereas I like the design of the shot, I felt I had missed the intelligent playfulness of Sue we had worked hard to get into the design in the first place, so I was adamant that I had another pass at her. A few coloring tweaks, and it’s now a piece I’m happy with that lives up to the quality of the rest of the teams work in the book.”
