I'm sneaking this one in under the wire. After having been Twartless for two consecutive weeks, I wanted to try something special for Francesco's Black Beetle and decided to work up a full-color magazine cover.
I struggled with it , remembering that I absolutely suck when it comes to color. In the end, I went with what I'm comfortable with and opted for a b/w version of the piece.
While trying to develop a theme for the piece, I googled a bunch of pulps and found that "Satan" pops up a lot and the character of "Sister Satan" just made me laugh (although the adventure's title probably owes as much to Stan Lee as it does to the pulps).
A big thanks to Francesco for letting me have so much fun with such a terrific character.
