Go BIG or Go Home
I f'n love the 90's era of comics. People can rag on them all they want but with out the 90's and guys like Rob Leifeld, Greg Capullo, Todd McFarlane, Sam Keith, and the rest of the guys blazing new trails back then, I wouldn't be drawing comics today. Things may change but the roots are always there.
Deadpool was a great character from the 90's that has remained just as popular today. I think that the humor injected in this character helps that a lot and that's what I wanted to inject here. Amazing Spider-Man #611 written by Joe Kelly and drawn by Eric Canete will be sporting a cover by yours truly. Deadpool still rocks all the pockets and crazy weapons people pretend to make fun of today, but yet on him it's still cool. So I wanted to show Deadpool giving his blessing to Spidey for going a little bigger and badder with his look.
My homage to the beginnings of my comic book reading days. Thanks for the inspiration gentlemen!
