Wacky Reference Wednesday, No. 201

Daredevil #20 Cover. 2012. Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.

This cover hit stands last week, but I wanted to share the reference that went into it. I have my own personal arsenal at home, one of the few things that I actually collect. Never thought I'd say this, but I might actually need a gun rack pretty soon — at 1:6 scale, of course. Party on, Wayne (did I just date myself?). You can see more pics of my collection in previous posts.

Digital composite with perspective grid...

Before I added action...

Before I added feet...

And a detail...


  1. ooh how I missed WRW! :D there has to be another contest somewhere celebrating #201 LOL :D

  2. Rob Liefeld would just stop at the "before I added feet" stage haha.

  3. Awesome.
    This cover reminds of some scenes drawn by Fletcher Hanks, a fascinating artist in a crude, twisted way, who liked to draw floating static objects and characters.


    1. I hadn't thought of that, but I'm a huge Fletcher Hanks fan. I'd love to do an old-school comic in his style.
