(DOCTOR STRANGEFATE by Georges Jeanty)
As I wrote in an earlier post, the Marvel vs. DC project was fun. But the real treat, to my mind anyway, was the Amalgam line of books, which combined various Marvel and DC characters and concepts. All the basic concepts, like Dark Claw (Batman and Wolverine) and Super-Soldier (Superman and Captain America), were already in place from our first meeting. I got my pick of the litter, which for me was obvious: Doctor Strangefate, a mash-up of two of my favorite characters, Doctors Strange and Fate (with Charles Xavier under the mask).
The issue is still one of my favorite projects ever, for the subject matter and especially for the brilliant art team of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez (pencils), Kevin Nowlan (inks) and Matt Hollingsworth (color). I recently came across some copies of Garcia-Lopez’s initial design work for the series, which I’ll post with future blog pieces.
