As wonderful as those “Iron Man By Design 2.0″ covers by animation artists Ronnie del Carmen and Bill Presing were, I think Marvel may have topped them this morning with two from legendary graphic designer Alan Aldridge and renowned animator and director Genndy Tartakovsky.

Aldridge, who’s widely known for creating illustrated lyric books for the Beatles, album covers for the Rolling Stones, the Who and Elton John, and the children’s book The Butterfly’s Ball, and the Grasshopper’s Feast, offers his psychedelic take on Iron Man for the variant cover for Avengers #2.

Tartakovsky, creator of Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, and director of 2003′s Star Wars: Clone Wars, delivers a quirky clockwork Armored Avenger for Invincible Iron Man Annual #1.

Both issues will be released in June. See the full covers and solicitation text after the break.

All these look awesome. I’m seriously thinking about hunting all of them.

It’s called the ‘Butterfly Ball’ not the ‘Butterfly’s Ball’

Favourite illustrator ever. :)
