Finished pencils for a cover I recently did for Fathom: The Elite Saga #3 with Aspen Comics which hits stores this Wednesday.

Lately, the Aspen dudes have been generous to let me conjure up my own cover concepts. The Fathom Christmas cover and Soulfire St. Paddy's Day cover I did for them earlier in the year were very well received by their public so my editor approached me with the idea of doing a Fourth of July theme cover. Early on we discussed the idea centering the image around fireworks, which always looks great with pinups, but I've grown to adore drawing Aspen Mathews so I wanted to do something completely out of the ordinary add a unique touch of celebration for the famous 4th to the image.

With variant covers like this I think it's fun to take the characters out of their normal element so here I dressed Aspen in a kind of hippie attire with a couple fun Easter-eggs like peace sign earrings and a heart tattoo on her tummy with the Aspen logo inside of it.

Hope you guys dig it!
