My public wish that Fiona Staples gets a crack at each of our book's covers is slowly coming true: May's T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #7 will feature the outstanding cover above.
We asked Fiona for a bit of background on her cover, and she supplied a few process pieces and an explanation on how she came to the finished product you're seeing now:
"We went with a combination of thumbnails #1 and #3- Dynamo held captive in the background, and a close-up shot of Iron Maiden holding his belt. I think the situation characterizes their relationship pretty well."
"Later in the painting process, I changed her expression a bit to make it clear that she's enjoying herself! And rather than having the stark dungeon background that I originally conceived, I filled it with retro sci-fi gizmos."
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS #7 hits comic shops in May.
