Ultimate Death's Head by LiamSharp Ultimate Death's Head by LiamSharp
This was produced for a recent pitch to Marvel, originally as an "Ultimate Death's Head" mini series. It's been 15 years sinse I drew Death's Head II for Marvel UK - my biggest ever success - and I really relished the idea of returning to the character, but adding a modern spin, kind of rebooting the whole series.
Sadly it wasn't to be. But enjoy the art!

Very best,

Liam.

I was a fan of your run on Death's Head II which I read in Overkill. This idea did look promising and may have been great as a series.

I'm sorry this wasn't published. DHII was one of my favorite titles, it was different and had a great sci-fi feel. I really enjoyed the mini-series and the regular series. Great character, great art.

It's all subjective, but fear not - it's not happening anyway. :)

I designed DHII, never much cared for DHI. This one was a reboot of my design, so if you liked the original DHII will always be inferior!

Take care,

L.
