HitMan MONKEY cover by Devilpig HitMan MONKEY cover by Devilpig
He's a monkey, a hitman and the first character at Marvel that started life as a simple internet MEME! It's true, google it. Can Wolverine vs. the LOLCATS be that far behind!?!

When they asked if I wanted to do covers for this new series, how could I refuse? Did I mention he's a MONKEY WHO KILLS PEOPLE!! Anybody who knows me, knows that I can't turn down an assignment that involves either, murder, monkeys, or alcohol.

Enjoy de-evolutionaries. And remember, 'Hitman monkey finds no joy in his job'.

Sound tract to this cover....

This monkey is simultaneously so terrifying and epic that I want to go find this comic simply because of the cover.

I must agree.

A Monkey. Guns. A winning formula.

So, how come no one else though up 'HitMonkey?'

(Yes. I own HitMonkey #1.)
Damn my love of monkeys!...and comics!...and the number 1!

Oh, I had a similar idea. I was working on a submission for Heavy Metal before last year's comic con. Drew up a cover, some thumbnails for the story; I was so stoked but I kept changing things and changing things instead of just running with it.

You can see the piece here.

I'm not bitching at Marvel or screaming copyright this or that but I am disappointed that I didn't focus and get my shit together. Your cover and the concept ... I'm buying that comic for sure.

Very fun cover! Love the use of red against the desaturated elements, and your use of blacks is fantastic. The whole tilted view of the cover really works for this composition too. Awesome stuff!
