A sketch dump, I wanted to see how the other characters would look in punk AU. I don’t know if they don’t feel like the characters to you (I myself am not sure of Loki, Chavez and David).
I’ve used references from google. I just want to clarify that this AU’s for fun.
I hope you like it!
That probably went as well as we could have hoped for. It’s reviewed phenomenally. Lowest from any big site was an 8, which is better than being punched by Miss America. It’s done well enough to get a “What’s the big deal?” backlash, which is natural, and a compliment of a sort. Young Avengers fanbase mostly more positive than I could have hoped for, which is nice. A good chunk of the people who were more luke-warm to cold about it were like that for reasons I at least understand and often agree with. And the people I were expecting to hate it hated it, which is always fine. In fact, I’d be more worried if they liked it. Probably the worst thing was a couple of problems slipped through, which we’ll fix in the second-print/trade.
Anyway - I wrote a proverbial shitload here. It goes way behind the curtain in terms of the cold hard maths of comic creation. Next lot will be fluffier, I swear.
And I’ll stress before we go in – this is relatively candid, inside-baseball, picking over choices stuff. Some people find this intrudes on their reading, in a “I didn’t think that worked/I didn’t think that was a problem” way. If you’re one of them, I’d recommend staying away, though it’s worth stressing that all responses to the work are just responses to the work, including my own.
And I’ll put it behind a cut, as it’s really bloody enormous.
This is totally fascinating if you have a copy of the issue handy! Which… I do. So.
Mysterious Girl, our Miss America.
In the earliest prototype stages of Young Avengers, I hit the “Can’t use Eli” note and decided I’d like someone to fill that visual niche. This was before I’d nailed down entirely what I was doing, and wanted to keep at least some…
young avengers: a beginner’s guide
Stephanie Hans’ variant for Young Avengers #2.
• Has Wiccan made a horrible mistake that comes back to bite everyone on their communal posteriors? Spoilers: Yes.
• Does this guest star the Uncanny Avengers? Spoilers: Also Yes.
• A figure from Loki’s past emerges. Friend? Foe? What will it be? Spoilers: It’s Foe.
• And much more from Marvel’s most critically acclaimed book. Yes, we’re saying it’s critically acclaimed and it’s not even out yet. We are very bad.
So how many copies of this issue am I gonna end up owning? (Probably all of them).
