New Mutants; New Threads
Every now & then, an artist will draw comic book characters for the fun of it, or for commission. The results are often imaginative, fun & inspirational. This is one of those times.
I've been honest about my dislike of the 'new' New Mutants title for some time now. In fact, it's got so bad that for the first time ever I've stopped buying the New Mutants; my former all-time favourite comic book. But when I stumbled across these redesigns on Project: Rooftop, (where the super heroes catwalk is far above the city streets) I was blown away... and a little crushed. In my opinion, these are just so fresh and beautiful that it's criminal we can't have this level of quality in the actual New Mutants title.
Daniel Govar was the writer and artist of Azure from the now-defunct Zudacomics. You can find more about him & his talent at Daniel Govar's own website. And hopefully we'll see his talent in more comics in future!
As much as I love these redesigns, it's doubtful that there'll be any more. That said, even though Cypher & Karma didn't get their own solo profile, you can still find them in the group picture! It was the group picture that caught my eye, as it was reminiscent of action, energy & originality in the classic Bill Sienkiewicz New Mutants pin-ups.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
