Covers for DC Comics' Final Crisis Aftermath: Run!, a 6-issue miniseries featuring some of the lowest villains from DC Universe, including Human Flame, a powerless pathetic loser who's responsible for the death of J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter.
For each cover there was a special background with the most known DCU buildings. On the first cover we show the famous Daily Planet behind the Human Flame. Following it we can see General Immortus and the LexCorp building, Seductress and the Titans Tower, Brown Recluse and Miss Swiss Army Knife in front of the Wayne Tower, the Hypergriffin at the S.T.A.R.S. lab and finally Human Flame in his new form in front of the Hall of Justice. I tried very hard but didn't manage to convince anyone to let me put Mr. Polka Dot nor Phoney Baloney on the covers...
But the most fun part of the entire job was to join the team to create some of the characters, specially the Hypergriffin, which had no sketch made until it made it to the fifth cover. Freddie Williams II was busy with the insides of the book so it was left to me to handle the job. Want to know the briefing? It goes like this: The Hypergriffin exists in 26 simultaneous dimensions, interacting with our own space in bizarre counterintuitive ways; Lions and eagles superimposed over one another in multiple dimensions, diffracting and refracting, and overlapping translucently and at right angles and intersecting in impossible ways. Think M.C. Escher meets Duchamps’ “Nude Descending a Staircase.”... Got it?
