Remembering the late, great Curt Swan on his birthday. One of the greatest things about doing Big Bang Comics has been the chance to work with some of my favorite artists. Murphy Anderson (who was coloring some of the first BB issues) made this cover possible.
Murphy contacted Curt and then inked it too. It appeared on the #4 issue of BB from Caliber Press, and we reprinted it about two years later after we moved to Image Comics as issue #6. Even got them to sign it as “Swanderson”.
And here’s something fun: Chris Ecker’s original cover layout and Curt’s pencils. We obviously didn’t provide enough reference on the Human Sub who came out looking a bit “different”.
