HARDWIRE_NICOLLET MK2. by tariq12 HARDWIRE_NICOLLET MK2. by tariq12
So in December while attending the exhibition " 35 days of Kevin Eastman" held at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, the big man himself cornered me near some scantily clad go - go dancers to ask me if i could do the cover to the 35th anniversary issue. When I regained consciousness I humbly accepted. The only pre requisite required was he image needed to derive inspiration from the original 1977 first issue cover.

So here it is folks. This issue should be hitting stores very soon.





Here is the link to the original 1977 cover, 'Nikollet'.. [link]

Simply amazing. This is very bad ass. If I didn't have nieces / nephews over all the time I'd be requesting this as a print for the wall. Thanks for sharing with us!

I think this must be your best-ever piece - and that's saying something! There's so much of a sense of narrative. Do you have a link to a pic of the original cover that inspired this?
