Covered: The Shield #10 (Sami Basri) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 22 OCT 2011

Captain America wasn’t the first hero to feature a costume based on the American flag. Oh no, that honour belongs to The Shield, created by MLJ (now known as Archie Comics) way back in January 1940.

Since then the character has seen a number of reboots and changes in ownership, the most recent of which has been DC’s attempt at modernizing the classic MLJ characters, particularly those of The Shield and Inferno.

DC’s 2010 The Shield (Volume 1) series ran for 10 issues, culminating with “Operation: Gunslinger Part 3 – Never Say Die!”, which featured a host of classic DC JSA characters as well as the eponymous The Shield of course!

Artist Sami Basri whipped up a spectacular cover for this issue, featuring The Shield standing defiant in a hail of bullets, making it perfect for this week’s Covered!

Covered: Power Girl #13 (Sami Basri) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 02 JUL 2011

New writer Judd Winick got handed the reins to Power Girl come volume 2 issue 13, where he immediately does his best to throw poor Karen Starr straight into the thick of things, in both her daily life as CEO of Starrware Industries and of course as Power Girl.

Talented new artist Sami Basri handles the interior artwork, but while he was at it, he threw together what ended up being quite the beautiful and majestic cover image catching Power Girl in full flight!

Can’t really argue with that!
