Whether she's applying her artistic skills to expanding the land of Equestria, or illustrating Chris Sims riding on the shoulders of Batman, we're big fans of Katie Cook. Known primarily for her work on IDW's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Cook is a versatile cartoonist, whose illustrations can bring a lightness and joy to any project.

And that's exactly why Marvel commissioned Cook to do Animal variant covers for three of their upcoming All-New Marvel NOW titles: Thunderbolts 20.NOW, Fantastic Four #1, and X-Force #1. You can check them out after the jump, and witness Cook finally give us the version of the Thing we never knew we always wanted -- the one where he's a train conducting bear.
