DC Comics/IDW

Writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson’s House of Secrets #92 is historic for serving as the 1971 debut of of Swamp Thing, but it’s also famous for featuring Louise Simonson as a model. Since then Simonson has had a storied career in comics, working as an editor at Warren Publishing in the ’70s and Marvel Comics in the early ’80s before shifting into a full time writing career across scores of iconic comics. To celebrate her latest project, writing the six-issue Cartoon Network crossover Super Secret Crisis War!, IDW’s releasing an alternate cover for the miniseries’ second issue by artist Andy Suriano that pays homage to Wrightson’s famous HoS art. Comes July, fans will be able to see what happens when the Powerpuff Girls take Simonson’s place and are menaced by the slightly swampy Ben 10 villain Vilgax.

From IDW’s solicitation info:

Aku and his League of Extraordinary Villains have trapped Samurai Jack, Ben 10, Dexter, the Powerpuff Girls, and Ed, Edd, and Eddy like bugs in a jar. (Okay, the Eds were a mistake!) Of course they’ll escape! Of course, there’ll be mayhem! Sheesh! What did Aku think would happen?

Super Secret Crisis War #2 by Simonson and artist Derek Charm arrives in comic shops and online on July 23. You can compare Suriano’s variant cover to House of Secrets #92 below.
