X-Factor 229 Cover by davidyardin X-Factor 229 Cover by davidyardin
This cover concept and tagline came from Assistant Editor Jordan White. Initially I wasn't sure how I was going to make it work, keep it interesting and have a main focus on the page, with all those Madroxes everywhere. I didn't even know what the cause of death was! I finally came up with Madrox being targeted in the crosshairs, and the layout fell into place. I even got to throw in a bit of humour with Madrox's different personalities. Fun cover.

Pencils, inks, and colours all by me.

Yeah, I know it wasn't you, bud. Then again, comics these days. He'll be back in a few weeks. Just look at Johnny Storm.

Why kill off madrox??? Looks great + nice idea seeing as they didnt tell you how he died. Why didnt they tell you?

I guess because they already had a concept; for most of the other X-Factor covers recently, they've given me script too.

Do you feel that the lack of information pertaining to the character's death is liberating or restrictive to your overall approach to cover design?

Lack of information is almost always restrictive, but it can force you to think in different ways to solve problems.
