DC Fifty-Too Entry - Ultra The Multi-Alien
Recently I was asked by my buddy, The Amazing Calamity Jon Morris, if I would like to take part in his grand project The DC Fifty-Too! ( http://dcfifty-too.blogspot.com/ ) For my part in that I chose to draw an old time favorite of mine, Ultra the Multi-Alien.
Jon Describes thew project thusly:
"What is DC FIFTY-TOO?
As you've probably heard, DC Comics is less than two weeks away from relaunching their entire line of superhero comics, fifty-two all new titles starting (or starting over) at the first issue. Most of their characters are getting new looks, some are getting streamlined or updated histories, and some older and more obscure characters are getting a turn in the spotlight.
Once DC started releasing the cover images of what the New DC Universe would look like, it got me wondering what the New DC Universe would look like ... if it were out of DC's hands.
I contacted a plethora of very talented - and very different - cartoonists with a simple challenge: If DC approached you and offered you any DC property - past or present - of your choice to be your own new ongoing part of the DC Universe, what would the cover to the first issue look like?
Fifty-two artists (and then some) responded, and that brings us here - DC FIFTY-TOO, The New DC Universe as imagined by fifty-two independent cartoonists. Starting on August 15th and running up through August 31st - the day the New DC Universe launches - this blog will unveil four new covers every weekday for DC Comics that never were but probably ought to have been! "
I urge you all to go over and rake a peek.
PS- Ultra the Multi-Alien was created in 1965 by Dave Wood and Lee Elias and first appearing in Mystery in Space #103 .
