Punisher Max 8 by Devilpig Punisher Max 8 by Devilpig
Even though I haven't posted the cover to no.7 yet (because I still need to finish it) I'm posting this. It's a 5 issue story arc involving the character Bullseye. So, I'm trying to do 2 things.
1. To have every cover involve a bullseye graphic element (so far, so good)
2. To do all the covers using a blue color palette to reference the original costume of Bullseye (even though the character in this story never dons the outfit)

Also, I realize this cover is kind of a book end cover to an earlier Punisher cover. This one... [link]

But hey, it just worked out that way. If I'd have know that Bullseye was coming up in my future I might have not done the earlier cover. But that said, I wasn't about to NOT do this cover because of that. It fits to well with the story.

But maybe I'm thinking about it too much because the reality is, that it's a stupid comic book cover and the world will go on as is, no matter what I do, haha.

I remember seeing
100 bullets #63 cover.

It reminded me of the ripple design you constructed
with it.

I thought that was another signature of yours. The graphic white rings.

I think it looks great.

Well, this is more of a bullseye. But I see your point.

Love this blue. It's funny because I go from "my life is important and my work is the bomb diggity" to "one day our sun will expand and engulf the Earth thus killing everything on it INCLUDING my art so what's the point" all the time.

And out loud, too.

Been enjoying all these covers! Any chance you'll get an itch and they'll let ya do a full one-shot interiors? I know it's all covers, all the time. Just miss seeing sequentials, and Punisher seems like a nice fit.

Anyways great stuff!

Nah. I think the dynamic color scheme and the circular shapes of the rings in this vs. the jagged hard lined vertigo styled ringlet and multi color of the first piece helps to give enough distance between the two covers. Really dig what's going on in this one.
