Cool cover, too bad not enough people buy this book and it will be in the next batch of cancellations. He will most likely get shoved into Teen Titans after that.

Well I am not an expert of these characters but I don't think it is noticeable that it's your first time drawing them. On the contrary, I would say that you are quite familiar with them if I didn't know better ;)
TL;DR: Another splendid cover! :clap:

P.S. If you get a chance, would love for you to give me an opinion on some of my artwork (Frazetta studies & my new ink works). It would be a great honor!:painter:

Blue Beetle? Where? All I see is a blue cyborg. Is this some other Blue beetle I don't know about that is a villan? DC's Blue Beetle is one of my favorite characters. Least it was before I stopped reading comics due to the outrageous prices.

Ah. So did they kill off the orignal or are they runing both still?

Which original BB ?

The first one, with super powers, or the second one, without superowes and friend fo Booster Gold.

As for the new BB, it's not a cyborg or a vigilante, just a teenager of Mexican descent bonded with an alien blue scarab.

The first and the second Blue Beetle. Sorry I should have been more clear.

Sorry I am old school.

DC comics relaunched it's whole line in September so you probably won't recognize more characters ;)

I guess its a good thing I do not read the new comics anymore. Personally give me the true classic superheroes over this new age of cyborg vigilantes with mental hang ups.

Well, back to my box of oldies but goodies :(
