Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
What was this for?
Good question. I'm not sure. Golden did a few Defenders covers in the late 70s, early 80s. So perhaps this was a commission or sketch.
This sketch shows just why I liked the Defenders when I was a kid: it seemed like you never knew who the heck was going to be on that team, and the odd combinations made the book fun; it had a whole different feel from, say, "The Avengers."
