COMIC BOOK IDOL 3 UPDATE

Here are the entries from the two finalists for the fifth and final round of Comic Book Idol 3!

Check out the Comic Book Idol 3 forum if you want to see the rest of their pages!

I am going to post ALL of their pages this time around. The assignment is to draw a cover and four pages for a hypothetical comic book starring Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends (Firestar and Iceman).

No script – total freedom!

Charles Paul Wilson III
a 31-year-old security guard from Wharton, NJ.






Jon Reed
a 28-year-old accountant assistant from Alexandria, VA.






Get ready to vote this Wednesday!

COVER THEME GAME

As always, here is the game. I show three covers. They all have something in common, whether it be a character, a trait all three characters share, locale, creator, SOMEthing. And it isn’t something obvious like “They all have prices!” “They all have logos!” “They all feature a man!” etc.

In addition, please note that you must have some familiarity with comic book history to correctly guess these comics. You cannot guess the connective theme just by looking at the covers solely, you must have some knowledge beyond just the covers.

Good luck! A cool point to the first person to figure it out!

Good luck!
