We debuted the "Feel Good Variant" cover concept for Huck, Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque's new brand of superhero a few weeks back with the Goonies styled homage. The variant covers are meant to evoke the feel good movies of yesteryear, a sensibility that Millar hopes shines through in his new series.
"We had a really great response from the buddy movie covers for the Chrononauts series and a pal of mine suggested, that since this is a feel-good comic, we do feel-good movies," Millar told ComicBook.com. "There’s actually so many to choose from that seemed appropriate here so we just hand-picked our favourites. The first review of this went up last night and they called it ‘the feel-good comic of the year’ so hopefully we’re hitting the right notes with this. Rafa and I are really excited about this book. It’s unlike anything else out there. HUCK is unlike anything else out there. He’s completely in the opposite direction to the several decades we’ve been marching darker and more complex in terms of our protagonists. He’s the opposite of the comic-book anti-hero, which I guess makes him a hero. But isn’t that what it’s all about?"
Now we have more of the covers, all by Rafa, including the debut of the Huck #2 cover, plus feel-good variants based on Blues Brothers, ET, and Field of Dreams. Check out the covers below, read more about the first issue and the series here, and check out Huck #1 November 18, 2015.
