Independent cartoonists imagine their own DC Fifty-TOO!

Blue Devil by Indigo Kelleigh

With DC’s “New 52″ titles hitting in a few short weeks, cartoonist Jon Morris has recruited a whole bunch of indie comic artists to put their own spin on what the relaunch could have looked like. Today he officially launched DC Fifty-TOO!, a blog that will feature mock relaunch covers by T.J.Kirsch, Marc Palm, Ryan Cody, Thomas Perkins, Robert Wilson IV, Matthew Allison and Benjamin Marra, among others. Morris asked them the question, “If DC approached you and offered you any DC property – past or present – of your choice to be your own new ongoing part of the DC Universe, what would the cover to the first issue look like?”

The first cover, featuring Blue Devil, is by Indigo Kelleigh, co-founder of Stumptown Comic Fest and creator of The Adventures of Ellie Connelly. Expect some others later today, with many more on the way.



With the humorous tilt of Blue Devil’s heyday in the 80’s (It was sort of the precusor to the JLA “Bwah-ha-ha” era), that cover would fit the classic Blue Devil perfectly!

Love the reference to MST3K there.

“It’s the devil and it’s fun!”

Wait….that actually looks interesting and fun! Y’know…fun?! What many books are lacking these days?
