Strange Tales 2 Cover remake by Anthony Vukojevich

I tried to do a version of Jaime Hernandez's cover of Strange Tales Vol. 2, #2 for Covered Blog.
Here is Jaime's amazing original version :

....but I just coudn't figure out a new take on it so I nixed it.  I guess I was thinking of the "Endless Summer" poster art.  Here's what mine looked like.

Fred Hembeck & The Fantastic Four Roast cover

Here's my rough of Fred's Fantastic Four Roast Cover done for Robert Goodin's Covered Blog.
I rearranged the characters and tried to create my own jokes.  I tried to think of it as the same party but with stronger (possibly spiked) booze at the open bar.
            Here's my brush inked cover.  Note the lack of black spotting as I intended on painting it in watercolor.      .
Here's Fred's original....Terry Austin inked it.  I love it.   Interestingly enough, Fred did a couple more versions as commissions with different characters interspersed about.   Check them out at Comic Art Fans here and right here.  Rom Spaceknight even appears on one of them.   Check out Fred's website here.
