As mentioned in the previous post, the SNES games are mostly the same as the ones for Genesis/Megadrive (except the X-Men games, which are different, the additional Japanese Spider-Man game (extra tip: the passwords for the different levels are the family names of Spider-Man’s foes)) and MOST IMPORTANTLY my favourite super-hero game for a while: WAR OF THE GEMS, if only for Thanos’s appearance.
Some of the covers are the same, so I didn’t go crazy looking for all the covers and just included whatever I came across:
More Glenn Fabry drawing super-heroes, which I dig and check the differences between the covers for Captain America in GEN/MD and SNES … Crazy, right?
Favourite SNES game, you ask? Strangely enough, this one:
Not sure if I am going to be doing more consoles, the covers for Playstation games start OK, then turn horribly wrong with computer generated art I don’t even feel like looking at. I might do Gameboy/Color/Advance, but there are so many that it might take a while … We’ll see!
As you might have seen on the collage I posted a few posts ago with my collection of inter-company crossovers, I am a bit obsessed with them at the moment. The quality is generally very poor but there’s something inherently fun about them.
I would like to take this moment to call for a minute of silence to the following crossovers, which might never happen:
Spider-Man and Spawn cover by J, Scott Campbell for Wizard
Darkseid vs Thanos commission by Jim Starlin
Only piece of art created for the announced but never started Batman / Gen 13 crossover
Lion-o vs He-Man by Ed McGuinness for the Last Man Standing section of the Wizard magazine
Boba Fett vs Deadpool by Ed McGuinness for the Last Man Standing section of the Wizard magazine
Batman vs Spider-Man by Michael Turner for the Last Man Standing section of the Wizard magazine
Batman and Deadpool commission by Derek Fridolfs
Wolverine vs Batman by Mike Wieringo for the Last Man Standing section of the Wizard magazine
Batman beating Wolverine commission by John Byrne
Hellboy vs Spawn by Mike Mignola for the Last Man Standing section of the Wizard magazine
