-House of Mystery 30

Here's the cover I did for Vertigo's "House of Mystery" issue 30.

12"x18" oil on panel with digital help.
A flame was added using the magic of Photoshop to subdue some of the ribbons. I personally like its ribbon-ness, but since another DC title was coming out this month with an unraveling mummy. Thats too many cloth-strip references for a month.
Original and sketches here.

A lot of sketches were done for this issue, the old timey ones along the bottom were sketched up based off one of the first summaries of the story arc. So many months went by that the story had changed in the final script. So a newer, technicolor batch was doodled up.
