A few months ago, I was guesting on an episode of The MOMBcast with a friend of mine, Michael Georgiou. Mike is a 'drawthor', a writer/artist and the creative force behind the Elemental Micah series (available for just £9.99 from this link!), and a good friend of mine. Check out his links to his own site, Elemental Micah, and a series of images he did to celebrate 10 years of his original creation Steve and Bob featuring Bob in a variety of geek-related costumes!
Mike was a little drunk, and pestered me with abuse for a few minutes about bringing back my semi-regular podcast, 20 Minute Longbox. A couple of weeks later, whilst hanging out with Mike, he made me a deal - if I put out four episodes of the Longbox in the 6 weeks before MCM London Comic-Con, he would provide me with cover art for one of my shows.
Four episodes of the Longbox later, and I was in a position to request some artwork. I asked him for the name of the show, in the traditional Fantastic Four font, with the team interacting with the letters in some way. A couple of weeks later - outside the cinema waiting to go in for The Man of Steel on the night of my 30th birthday - Mike presented me with the above image.
No pun intended at all - it's fantastic, and far more than I expected when I was putting together an idea for the image.
Thank you Mike!
(And as for the 20 Minute Longbox? I then went on to produce four more episodes featuring interviews from the MCM London Comic-Con, and the show will return to carry on with random comic selection in a few weeks time)
