I recently completed this classic cover recreation, commissioned by collector Bert Simmons. It’s based on the original Curt Swan cover for Adventure 300 featuring the Legion of Superheroes. Here they are replaced by other teen characters of DC’s Silver Age and the iconic Titans Tower.
Hand drawn Titans characters and re-imagined Titans logo based on the Adventure Comics logo. Some computer work for other text cover elements and tones. Preliminary stages shown below.
Team: Robin, Wondergirl, Kid Flash, Speedy, Aqualad, Hawk and Dove.
