Marco Checchetto draws comics’ newest superhero slacker


Image Comics has announced a Marco Checchetto variant cover for the third issue of Joe Casey’s and David Messina’s psychedelic “slacker superhero” series THE BOUNCE. Checchetto is the current artist on Avenging Spider-Man, and has also worked on other Marvel titles.

THE BOUNCE is the second new series penned by Casey (BUTCHER BAKER THE RIGHTEOUS MAKER, GØDLAND) to launch in 2013. The first, SEX, has been received with critical praise and multiple printings of its first and second issues.

The variant cover can be ordered now with the Image Comics code MAY138257. THE BOUNCE #2 landed in stores on June 26, and #3 will be on shelves on July 24.

Casey’s Image Comics titles are among those produced under the Man of Action imprint, a creative studio that includes Steven T. Seagle (THE RE[A]D DIARY), Joe Kelly (I KILL GIANTS), and Duncan Rouleau (THE GREAT UNKNOWN.)
