ELEKTRA SKRULL!!! Well, the big news this month is Elektra's a
Skrull. For those of you not "in the know", a Skrull is an alien
shape-shifter who assumes the likeness of an existing person. Then they
put said person on ice, and take their place. Why? Because they can!
How far back does it go? Nobody yet knows. I'm just hoping it
doesn't go back to my run on the covers. That would just be weird.
Anyway, here is my painting of Elektra-Skrull in mid-transformation, getting
ready for the next big Marvel Comics crossover event--THE SECRET INVASION:INFILTRATION! I was
extremely intimidated by the
green-corrugated-roof chin, but I posted this image recently on the Brian Bendis
board thread: "Would you "do" a skrull?" and got some exuberantly
positive replies...I guess fanboys will "do" anything--even an
evil, smelly doppleganger. I really like how
Wizard magazine blew her up so large on the cover--it looks like a Maxim issue!
