DareDevil #43

2. Jake Kujava's take of the cover

Jack Kirby, was the Pablo Picasso of the comic world. Apart from being an excellent storyteller, a brilliant deigner of craft and substance, he could take a simple object such a food and give it a larger than life touch. But for myself he was always a great abstract artist. Here's a cover of Dare Devil #43, 1968, inked by Joe Sinnott. The two main characters fill out the cover, the legs, arms and postion of Captian American's body is out of proper relation between his body parts. No other artist could get away with this. It's mashes together but flows at the same time.

So here's my take, bringing out my inner punk, I stylized the two images, giving Captain American six fingers for his bigger than life image. The background was filled with EC segar's background faces that he used in Popeye's boxing panels. It was going to used for a web page called Covered, but was rejected because it wasn't what he was looking for.
