Dr. Doom cape made by my Mamma

Okay, so technically this week's reference was from this cover, but I thought it was funny enough to share regardless. It was also the same character and series (and pose) so I'm going to count it. For those making a comprehensive Rivera creator checklist, I also drew the t-shirt I'm wearing in the photo — made for my brother-in-law's wedding.

BOOK OF DEATH #3. 2015.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

  1. I like it so much, Mr. Rivera, but I think that the second thumbnail 'Book Shadow/Heroes' was the best option for this cover... But the final election was fine too. I also want a Doom cape, it rules. Regards Mr. Rivera...

    1. Hey, thanks for looking at all the options! Yeah, I liked that one too... wish we had used that for another in the series. And yes... having a Doom cape is always a good idea. Thanks!
