ARTIST COLLEN COOVER RE-INTERPRETS A CLASSIC FROM MY INFAMOUS SUBMISSIONS COLLECTION

Remember two years ago when I posted a classic from my infamous collection of crazy submissions found during my days in the Marvel Bullpen that featured Wolverine inexplicably running into Freddie Mercury in the middle of some random forest? Well, apparently artist Colleen Coover saw it and has been so haunted by its non sequitor imagery and tone that she's been moved to draw her own re-interpretation of it. Check this out:


Seriously, what's not to love here? Well done, Colleen!

And to truly give credit where credit is due, the submission in question was originally brought to my attention by Darren Auck, who was at the time the head of the Marvel Bullpen's art corrections section. He received tons of ludicrous submissions but that one practically exploded out of the envelope when he opened it. Knowing of my ever-growing binder filled with crazy submissions and letters — of which this was the most inspired but my no means the most genuinely insane — Darren let me photo copy it and now it's digitized and posted on the Internet, thus preserved for posterity.

I know. That's where I first heard about Colleen Coover's version of the submission drawing.
