Batman and Quasar



Quasar was a character that was giving me a very hard time, as I just couldn't find an image that would work. finally I came upon a cover of his that was done by the very talented Mike Mignola and my my flashed to a Mignola Batman cover that I thought would do the trick. I had to tweak it a little, extending the cover on the left side and moving a few bats around.

I never followed Quasar's solo series but I did like him as a guest star with Spider-Man, The Avengers or the FF and thought he had an interesting history. I'm not sure but I think I read that he was killed in one of the recent Annihilation series that Marvel has put out, and there is a female version now? I'm sure one of you can let me know if I have that right or not.

Nice choices! Can't go wrong with Mignola artwork.

Regarding Quasar, he was killed during Annihilation, and his bands were left to a female successor. However, since then, he has come back and she has died.

Ah so he was only "kind of" dead. Only in comics!

Another offbeat suggestion – For a Spiderman team-up have Spidey say something along the lines of “Move over, this is my team-up book now!” and have him tearing down the Brave and The Bold logo and replacing it w/ a Marvel Team Up logo.

I love this blog! Really great stuff.

I hope you don't mind but you've inspired me to try something similar on my blog. I'm always careful to give credit to this blog for having the idea first though. And for doing it much better of course.

How about a Batman/ Doctor Who cover?

Thanks for doing him! He's one of my favorette Avengers.

I LOVE this one, Ross. Quasar was one of my favorite characters for quite some time. He was appearing in Nova's book for a while.
