I did a Dazzler redesign for Jon Morris’ OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE REDUX blog. Penciled in Manga Studio 5, inked traditionally.
Dazzler #3 Splash Page Art by John Romita, Jr. (Marvel 1981)
Butterball - He’s completely invulnerable to physical attacks.. but that’s it. This dude could tank like a motherfucker.
Stilt-Man - Okay.. fine.. it’s not an actual superpower but fuck you i do what i want.
Dazzler - She can turn sound into light. Sounds lame as flip right? NEWP!
Tag - He touches you and says ‘Tag, you’re it.’ and you end up running a few hundred feet in the other direction.
Matter-Eater Lad - He can eat anything. Including stuff that is indestructible.
Cypher - Can understand any and all languages. Including computer and body language.
The Red Bee - Has a swarm of trained bees in his belt that he can control. You’re laughing. Funny yeah? Now imagine a swarm of trained bees all up in your face and in your hair.. yeah.. you’re not fucking laughing now are you.
Arm-Fall-Off boy - He can pull off his own limbs and beat you with them. Imagine you’re a henchman for some villain and this guy comes running at you. And as he gets closer he pulls off one of his arms and while you’re busy gawping he starts beating you with it. Mercilessly. How can you go home to your wife and kids after this.
Doorman - Want to get into the bad guys control room to stop the self destruct countdown on 1 second but the door is locked? NEVER FEAR! DOORMAN IS HERE! He can just press himself against a wall or a door and you can pass through him into the room. But that’s it.
That was fun!

From the In the House of Feasts oneshot by Joven Tolentino, Daniel Ramirez, and Kwan Wilson:
The crew assembles and struts a little too confidently into the haunted house in question.
Download and read the full comic at the Hijack Press gumroad store for free (or for a modest donation, it’s up to you).
I’ve just started a Gumroad store, and I’ve launched it by making the Important Facts From Leading Scientists Foundation Of The Earth Blue Series booklets available for download - all four for four clams! Neighbor, that’s a ganga!
These aren’t comics, by the way - well, “How Dolphins Have Sex” is a comic, I suppose, but the others are illustrated informational pamphlets. So now you know! Check ‘em out!
