There are three for-sure things all people love in life: comic covers, cover bands, and MS Paint. Some warned us to never combine this holy trinity. We here at Multiveristy Comics said no, threw caution to the wind, and combined mankind’s three favorite things into our new weekly feature: MS Masterpaint Theater! Each week, we will highlight some of the best comic cover art by recreating those masterpieces in the artist’s ultimate tool, MS Paint.
Welcome to this week of MS Master Paint Theater. Before we enjoy this week’s masterpieces, let’s run over the rules again real quick.
- Must use MS Paint.
- Must use mouse and keyboard.
- No tips, tricks, or hints.
- 1 hour per piece.
- Each piece will be rated on a scale of 1 to 10.
Simple enough! Let’s open the curtain on this week’s covers! Enjoy
By Paul Azaceta and Elizabeth Breitweiser
Bro, do you even read” Outcast”? This book genuinely creeps me out on a regular basis. Horror is extremely hard to pull off in comics. Obviously the subject matter and pacing do a lot of set the tone but Paul and Elizabeth are the driving force on this book. Amazing shadows, framing and deep colors set a mood that just pulls you in. The cover for #19 has a bit of everything. Haunting expressions, uncomfortable posing, heavy shadows and rich colors to break the tension a bit. This book might give you nightmares and oddly enough so will using paint as much as I have at this point.
By Kyle Welch after Paul Azaceta and Elizabeth Breitweiser
That less looks like he is wearing a hat and more of a lamp shade or maybe sick bandana. Kyle’s look of horror has be replaced by a man who looks like he is storing food in his cheeks for the winter. I will say my Sydney is a little bit sexier. The shirt might be unbuttoned an extra button or two. Just because your the devil doesn’t mean you can’t feel good about your body.
