2008 saw Dark Horse and writer Rick Remender team up with penciller Mat Broome and inker Sean Parsons to deliver stellar The End League superhero saga. Issue 7 shipped with the following synopsis:
Trapped, tortured, and left for dead, Arachnakid and the Blue Gauntlet must set aside their differences to escape the insanity of the City of Lore. In Germany, Soldier American and Prairie Ghost face off against an army of cloned former allies in hopes of stopping Wolfsangel from creating a Frankenstein’s monster capable of wielding the hammer of Thor! Who is the mysterious Mook? What are Divinity’s true motives, and will the Greek Gods be humanity’s saviors or final executioners?
After Mat left for Marvel, art chores on The End League fell to Eric Canete, who came up with this rather disturbing and menacing piece for issue seven’s cover, featuring a quite scary looking Arachnakid!
