Captain America #33 in 30 Seconds

EDIT!! I just realized I forgot a whole panel! I've now added it.

This is for the Invincible Super Blog contest over at Chris Sims' place.

I think this should prove, beyond any doubt, that I am the worst drawer in the world.

I thought that since I didn't get to review last week's comics, I would draw up a little summary of Captain America #33, which was awesome.

Alright, here we go...



Meanwhile, in S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters...






Tony suits up and goes looking for Winter Soldier:





Differences are set aside...



THE END.

And this is why I gave up my dream of being a comic book artist long ago.

Oh man that was made of awesome and win. Could that be your new 08 feature? Because had I been eating it would have ended up on my coffee table.

Jane said...

At the very least I won $25 out of that issue.

Say what you will about the art, I really like your lettering.

Although I think Ed Brubaker's depiction of Tony Stark is probably the best, most realistic version that has occurred since the Civil War fiasco, I think yours is a close second. "Hey, you're a good fighter. And you're attractive." That would be a superb catchphrase if it stuck -

"Say there, Daredevil. You're a good fighter. And you're attractive."
"You'll never succeed at your evil plan, Magneto! Although you *are* a good fighter. And you're attractive."

Writes itself, really.

Aw c'mon, the art is great. And the plot was so pithy and succinct that I don't have to go out and actually buy it now!

Screw Alex Ross, I want YOUR variant cover for issue 34.

(And I'm really looking forward to Black Widow making sure Bucky is ready. And hot.)

The sad thing is that this isn't me trying to purposely draw badly...these are actually some of the best drawings I have ever done.

I'll talk to Marvel about doing variant covers. They'd look better than Turner covers.

Johnathan said...

I also say yay.

Yay!

Somehow, the bit about the Rush box set is what makes it for me.

Ben said...

This should be your new permanent blog format.

Steve Epting said...

That was awesome.

Great job!

This was awesome!

Ed Brubaker

Wrye said...

Nailed it! Of course now you're gonna have all these new readers hanging around your blog...

rachelle said...

Steve Epting?! Ed Brubaker?! Who else is going to comment? GOD?!

Ben...I could never make this a permanent blog format. I have no idea how comic artists do it. After two panels I was like "Aw, man. I have to draw Iron Man AGAIN?!" Sequential art is hard!

HernĂ¡n Rodrigo said...

Really...great stuff Rachelle. The best and funniest summary of that issue. By the way , do this more often...perhaps with the next all star Batman and Robin??
Hugs,
Hernan

Ps: Who said women cannot draw comics???? LOL

rachelle said...

Ha! Touche.

Matthew said...

I loved this! I think that I will go buy the comic to compare plot notes and to see just how many times Marvel uses the word "douche" in its actual text! I think it's making a comeback...

Andy said...

Heee... Loved the Rush box set line too! :)
*Seeing a vision of Iron Man playing air drums is comedy GOLD*
;)

Andy said...

P.S. that's WAY better than I can draw people! There's no humans in Owly for this specific reason! I say you got the chops to go far! ;)

Not bad, at least we get an idea of what Capt America # 33 had inside. All you need is a couple of drawing lessons and you'll be good to go
