Cloak and Dagger #6 Cover by Leonardi and Austin

Original Cover


Original art for the cover of Cloak and Dagger #6. Original pencil and ink work that was later colored which was a practice in the late 80's with some collectors to make the art more presentable. Normally I don't like pieces that are hand colored like this and avoid them but in this case I am not so strict. I think it looks good. I would not have done it. Perhaps it can be removed but as it is, I am OK with it. Cloak and Dagger are one of the soft spots I have for Marvel Comics characters along with Daredevil, Dazzler and the New Mutants.
