Hey, Dan, really specific and obscure question for you!  I was just noticing how in IDW's Spotlight: Nightbeat, we briefly see Straxus' face and he is mentioned in Simon Furman's script as the one who is putting the implant in Nightbeat's head.

Fast-forward almost two years later, and Straxus makes his full debut in Spotlight: Cyclonus, with a new design by... YOU!  You even gave him a cool battle mask that matches his classic Marvel appearance.

The curiosity to me is that what we see of Straxus' face in SL: Nightbeat pretty much matches your design for Straxus' unmasked face in SL: Cyclonus.  SO!  My question is, did you base Straxus' face off that brief look we saw before, did you design Straxus almost two years in advance, or is this just a massive coincidence and I'm insane??  :)

I think I wanted to reconcile the old design with the classic look, so did that through the battle mask.

Sorry for the favorite spam. A buddy showed me some of your stuff and I had to check it out!
I’ll be at Heroescon this weekend at Artist alley table58. I’ll have prints on hand and I’ll be taking on sketch commissions all weekend.
Sorry bout the fave spam, lol
