About the Project Superpowers cover:
“It’s funny. In creating that composition, I was looking to do something that would be almost too much of a riff on that original cover by Perez. As it worked out, the majority of our heroes don’t fly, so there wouldn’t have been the opportunity to have them all coming down on this giant creature. So this angle proved to be the most sensible, with him reaching down at the people at ground level. But I was very distinctly trying to copycat that influence, and it’s nice when influence can take you in a direction where you didn’t expect to go. None of the elements are the same, physically, but you can recognize where the inspiration comes from.”
