This is the cover for my second issue of Avenging Spider-Man featuring Spider-Man and the new Captain Marvel. This issue shipped in August.Here's the scan of the page from sketchbook of my cover ideas - image is about 4 x 6". Drawn in Light Blue and HB Pencil, Pitt and Copic Pens.
Next, I cleaned up the sketches in Photoshop and prepared for Marvel's Editorial to approve.
