Death's Head reboot pic by LiamSharp Death's Head reboot pic by LiamSharp
Here's another piece from the Marvel pitch I did to reboot the book. Man, it would have been fun! Shame they didn't bite.
This was on the surface a real gung-ho macho nationalistic piece of work - but anybody who knows me would know it wouldn't have stayed that way for long... :)

Very best,

I sensing a kind of trend here... :-)
I have to assume you are a big fan of the original Death's Head? I drew and designed Death's Head II back in '91 at Marvel UK, so naturally I have a bigger connection to him. The version above was more a reboot - created with Bryan Hitch, who drew a lot of the original Death's Head series. My friends, Geoff Senior and Simon Furman, a great guys. I know how much they enjoy all the love that's out there for their creation. Keep that fire burning!

Why dose he have a different look here. what happened between here and then in death's head gold?

This was a pitch for a reboot that never came off... not really Death's Head as we knew him at all, but a reinvention in the style of The Ultimates or BSG. It would have evolved more if we'd been given the go-ahead.

This would have been nice to see.
Marvel approached me for a "what if" cover back in 1999 that had Death's Head as part of a covert X-men team. They cancelled the book and it never saw print. They said it would have been too brutal. But look at the new X-force book...It's a very similar team. Anyway you can check out the "unpublished" cover here [link]

Sorry I missed this comment! Amazing! Just checked the link! I wonder why they lost their nerve? Thanks so much for dropping by and sharing this! :-)

I miss Death's Head 2 to this very day. Too bad they didn't bite and instead gave us the horrific Death's Head 3.

oh and btw, death's head 2 was in the last issue of Capt. Britain and the MI13 last year, it was pretty cool
