Cloak & Dagger challenge

Unfortunately, we missed it by a day, but Cloak & Dagger were featured in a sketch-off between artists Jim Lee and Francis Manapul over at WildStorm’s Gelatometti blog.

Each week or so two artists face off at the Gelatometti to draw the same characters. Reader votes determine the winner of the round, and the sketches are then auctioned off to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment rights for members of the comic book community. Jim Lee is known for his work on Marvel Comics’ X-Men and co-founding Image Comics as well as the WildStorm imprint at DC Comics, and more recently for providing pencils for Jeph Loeb’s Hush storyline in Batman, Brian Azzerello’s For Tomorrow story in Superman, and the current All-Star Batman with Frank Miller at DC Comics. This round’s challenger Francis Manapul gained attention as Top Cow’s regular artist on Witchblade as well as the creator-owned Iron and the Maiden at Aspen Comics, and will be handling Legion of Super-Heroes for writer Jim Shooter’s long-awaited return to the DC title.
