Spider-man cover by diablo2003 Spider-man cover by diablo2003
This is the cover to What If? Spider-man: The Other from Marvel Comics. I'm really proud of this one because Peter David is the writer of the issue and he didn't know what story to write until he saw my cover. Apparently it inspired him to write, what he calls, the creepiest story he's ever written so I'm very flattered. The cover is an homage to Joe Quesada's original 'Spider-man:the Other #1 cover' which was an homage to Da Vinci's 'Proportions of the Human Body' so I guess you could say it's a double homage. Pencils and inks by me with colors by Christina Strain. You can read more about the issue here:

Hope you dig!

EDIT BONUS!: For anyne that's still checking this image, here's the translated text. When reversed, translated, and read correctly, it translates as:

"(Top): Rest in peace / The play is over / The fat lady has sung / Death equals all things / Death is everything's final limit / Never despair! / Not all of me will die / It ain't over until it's over / Everything changes, nothing perishes / You have a big piece of spinach in your front teeth.

(Bottom): While I breathe, I hope / Nature does nothing in vain / Look around you, remember that you are mortal / It is said that for a sick man, there is hope as long as there is life / While we have the time, let us do good / I am broken, I am not deflected / Anything said in Latin sounds profound / Get a life / How fearful is this hour / A precipice in front, wolves behind / Be patient and tough; some day this pain will be useful to you / For those in misery perhaps better things will follow / We do not fear death, but the thought of death / After the darkness, light / You're from New York, aren't you? / Royally screwed."
