Hey, remember Jacob Edgar, the up-and-coming artist whose amateur Batman and Superman work you fell in love with a while back?
He’s the guy who gave us gems like this:
Well, Jacob’s been pretty busy of late. He’s done some Batman work for DC (hooray!) but now he has a groovy new Kickstarter comics project called Alter Ego, with Nate Cosby, Kike J. Diaz and Rus Wooten. The gist: What if a superhero who is a bright beacon of hope by day spends his nights as a dark creature of vengeance?
Nifty, eh? Click here for more details — as well as extras by the likes of Phil Hester, Wilfredo Torres and Declan Shalvey.
Anyway, when I heard the concept of the project, I immediately thought about how often Superman and Batman have switched personas (kinda/sorta at times) since the Golden Age and came up with a 13 COVERS gallery. I do admit I cheated a bit, though: I included three Composite Superman issues just because of the imagery, as well as two times the Man of Steel and Dark Knight stepped into each other’s boots in animation.
