A new REMAKE/REMODEL challenge from Warren Ellis. Here's the brief:
"You are an artist/designer. You have to put together the cover for a comic called THE FANTASTIC FOUR. It is issue 1 of this book.
You have been told that the comic is about four people who steal a spaceship, fly into space, get heavily irradiated by cosmic rays, and return to earth weirdly altered by their experience.
And that's it. The bastards haven't told you one more damn thing than that. Not a clue. They might all be women. It might be about the Indian space programme twenty years from now. For all you know this is a JG Ballard story, for christ's sake...
It's up to you what kind of company you're at. What kind of comics you make. How you translate that description of The Fantastic Four. What era you're in. Who you are, even. Go nuts with it.
You have one week. Go."
Decided to go kind of retro-60's future with this, playing off the space race and since this book originally came out in 1963, thought I'd vibe off of that as well. Thought about adding an illustrative element as well, but decided to just let the type do the talking.
