More Cover Remixes

I've completed a couple more Silver Age Remix Comics drawn for Comics Alliance, written by Chris Simms.

The good folks at Comics Alliance asked if I would create a few mock covers to go with Chris Sim's "Silver Age Remix Comics" writing, and I said, "Sure!" I always enjoy their site.
