Romita Sr, Tuska Cover Dynamite's Black Terror
Romita Sr, Tuska Cover Black Terror
As Dynamite Entertainment prepares for the November launch of Black Terror, the firs spin-off from Project Superpowers, it has announced that John Romita Sr. and George Tuska are on board for providing alternate covers for issues #1 and #2, respectively. We’ve got your first looks at the covers to the right.“Having Jazzy John Romita, the man who in my opinion was the ‘definitive’ Spider-Man artist grace a rare chase cover to issue #1, and George Tuska start his relationship with Dynamite by providing a chase cover to issue #2 is a rare treat, and one that we are ecstatic to present to our fans and retailers!” Dynamite Publisher nick Barucci says in a company release. “Both are classic artists in their own right and have helped to create the characters we’ve grown to love! The wonderful part of having Mr. Tuska involved is that he brings a true taste of the Golden Age with his classic approach. We’ve also been able to have the colorist and our art guys ‘play’ with the cover, to have it look as if it’s just been ‘found’ in a collection or your favorite retailers back issue bin. This has been a lot of fun.” As can be seen in the images, both covers are described by the publisher as “weathered.”
Previously reported on by Newsarama, the new Black Terror series will both follow and establish the character as his own man in the Project Powers universe that Dynamite is establishing. The series is plotted/art directed by Alex Ross, written by Jim Krueger, and penciled by Mike Lily. Ross and Lily are providing covers as well.
