Thunder = Stolen

Further proof has emerged that Chris Sims and I are actually twins separated at birth (he is sent to temperate South Carolina while I am left to suffer the harsh tundra of Canada). For the past couple of weeks, my pal Dave Howlett and I have been collaborating on some Marvel variant covers (and by collaborate, I mean he draws them and I do nothing).

The aim here is to poke fun at the seemingly endless variant cover themes Marvel comes up with (Zombies!...Skrulls!...Apes!). These are our ideas for what might come next.

Meanwhile, over at the ISB, Chris has posted this. How did we have the same thought in the same week?! Damn you, Sims!

Anyway, here's what Dave and I came up with.

Talkin Bout Comics said...

Awesome. Marvel Horsies is my favorite of these. His Hobos beats yours due to the conspicuous lack of a bindle in yours.

Anna said...

Marvel Fairy Princesses and Marvel Horsies are excellent.

dave howlett said...

Shit! I can't believe I didn't put a bindle in there. For shame, me.

For the record, Rachelle, the ideas for most of these were yours, so I'd say you contributed plenty...

Chris Sims said...

I will pay you CASH MONEY for the original Marvel Fairy Princesses art.

Johnathan said...

Does Marvel Manatees get no love?

MetFanMac said...

ROFLMAO at the Marvel Fairy Princesses!

Dean said...

Is that Fairy Princess Punisher Kills The Marvel Fairy Princess Universe? If so, awesome.

...Marvel Pachyderms...

gravitybear said...

I would be ALL OVER Marvel Horsies. That is some great stuff.
I have the Power Pachyderms referenced above, but the horsies would kick its ass.

mike abbott said...

You out invincibled and out supered Chris Simms.
That's quite an accomplishment.

Sea_of_Green said...

Oh, YEAH, I DO love the Marvel Horsies. :-)

Tim Mitchell said...

That was awesome. My favorite was the Hobos because I'm a big fan of Daredevil, and that's a classic issue.

Are you selling prints or the originals at all? I'm interested!

SallyP said...

These...these are BEYOND awesome. They are super-MEGA-awesome!

Oh, and hilarious.

rachelle said...

Thanks guy!

I can't stop looking at Marvel Horsies, myself. That Namor in the corner kills me.

I think Dave is open to making prints and selling them. I'll get some info out soon.

Teebore said...

I love that Horsie Thor can still wield his hammer, thanks to the strap that hangs from the bottom.

Caleb said...

Bravo, guys!

Let's see, I'll take a Marvel Mermaids, a Marvel Fairy Princesses and a Marvel Horsies (Oh man, Namor Horse is fantastic! Is he a seahorse?)

Zak said...

My favorite is Marvel Hoboes, because......it actually looks really cool. I'd kinda like to read that.

Shawn Reynolds said...

We've had a running joke about Marvel Kittens at Heroes Aren't Hard to Find. Kitty Spidey shoots yarn instead of web.

Josh Elder said...

This is even more magnificent than I had imagined.

Alan said...

Marvel Horsies is indeed an idea whose time has come.

Brian said...

Hilarious! I agree that Marvel has gone way over the deep end with their variant covers. I understand the need to sell more issues, but give us a break!

bird said...

i would actually buy the marvel horsies covers.

marvel give these folks a contract!

scottyquick said...

That Marvel Hobos would look BRILLIANT on my wall.

Sea_of_Green said...

Though technically, as a product of Norse mythology, the Thor horse really should have either wings or EIGHT LEGS. ;-)

Lee Nygma said...

Utter genius!

I want to see Marvel Horsie Iron man get drunk and wreck up the place.

Seriously, Zombies and apes are so passé, even Werewolves are getting over done. We need more originality, bring on the horsies and I wait eagerly for the day we see Marvel Hobos gracing the covers.

greywulf said...

Marvel Mermaids!
