Glad everyone likes the choice.  I uploaded Incredible Hulk



Here is the front and spine for the next cover in the series.  I changed the icon for the arc reactor to match the one he uses at the end of the film.



Let me know what you think.   ;)

Sorry for the slow updates, my work and home life have been off here lately.  Anyways, here is the completed Iron Man 2 cover:




And here is the start for Thor:



I tried to make the background a more crimson color to match Thor's cape while the boarder outline is the blue from his plates.  Let me know if there is anything you see that needs changing.  I really appreciate all the help/helpful advice everyone has given me on this set.

Do me a favor, and change the Thor logo on the front image and the border to white. Just want to see what it would look like. If not white, maybe something else that is light in color? I really like the image that you have chosen for the front and the crimson color for the background is perfect.

Not a problem.  How about grey?

I really like Thor's new logo better, don't you? As for the border, can you make the grey a little lighter or possibly silver? It might not work because of the image, but it should work with your crimson background (don't change that background, lol)

Okay, I tried a few variations.  Here are the results:

Version 1 (very light grey):


Version 2 (dark blue/grey mix boarder):


Version 3 (blue chrome):


Let me know which one you like (I am leaning towards the first two myself).  And don't worry chouette, the crimson background is staying.  ;)

I like the first two as well, although maybe the first one is a bit too light now that I see it. Version 2 might be your best choice. It goes best with your title treatment as well, me think. This way it will pretty much cover what Stampe suggested, lol
