cereal:geek 06 - COVER

As the theme of comics was continuing from the previous issue I thought that Spider-Man deserved a cover. Then I thought so too did his allies Iceman and Firestar! As Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends was quite a light-hearted show, I thought that a somewhat comical cover would be the order of the day. And so I sketched out the idea that Spider-Man was holding auditions for his Amazing Friends; looking towards the audience for help. NATHAN BAERTSCH re-illustrated my layout and made it look good! I then gave Nate's layout to ADAM MOORE who worked his magic and illustrated this beautiful piece. Finally, longtime cereal:geek colorist ANDREW CRAMER used his awesome talents to color the cover!

Thanks again for the opportunity to grace the cover of CG mate! Really enjoyed this one!

After EVERYTHING you've colored over the years for cereal:geek it was logical that at some point you HAD to grace the cover! :)

LOVE the Firestar and Iceman play. That's the cartoon that started my love for these characters and the comic world. Thanks for including them. This is very cool!

Poor Spidey! :giggle: lovely cover there with Black Cat, Wolvy, Cap, Hulk (Though Marvel Adventures got them really good though with MA Avengers! awesome comic series!) & Mysterio (Seriously?) with Firestar & Iceman poking at each other! :D

Yeah, the Firestar/Iceman gag was something Adam decided to illustrate with no prompting from me - Originally I had envisioned them both showing off independently to win the Amazing Friends roles, but to have them trying to annoy one another is SO much better! :)

Awesome! I love how your magazine has been doing alot of "Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends".

I was avoiding the Marvel Cartoons initially, only because there were no good DVDs from which to make video captures from - Then back in 2008 (prior to issue four) the UK began releasing the Marvel cartoons - Happy day! :)

He's a Marvel Comics fan, right? :)

Oh yes. He actually had the first issue of the Fantastic Four back in the day, but had to get rid of that and the rest of his comics years later though.

Love this cover. And it was my favourite show. I must make a plan and get the dvds, just for nostalgia sake.

Phenomenal idea(!) really nice pencils/inks and awesome coloring. Just a little sad, we only get a 495x700 sized one...

If you want any constructive criticism, there is only two things that look a little flawed in my eyes, everything else is gloruously perfect and gorgeous:
1. Hulk shorts look flat, could need thinner outlines and fringes a little more finer lines.
2. Wolverine shouldn't have points as eyes with the mask on. Leaving it white is ok for Wolvi.

lol nice cover! I laugh how the Human Torch is off the list since in the comics him and Spidey are friends. Well if it was between him and Firestar i would go with Firestar, I couldn't blame Spidey on picking her more XD
