New Georges Jeanty Buffy artwork. Features Buffy's head in a montage of DC and Marvel characters.

The Comic Book Guide to Buffy got an exclusive in posting Georges Jeanty's back drop online, which before now had only been seen at comic book conventions.

Very nice. His Buffy keeps getting better. I can identify everyone but the center guy. Anyone know who that is?

How did I miss the cover for #26? Love it.
I was about to say that was an old picture, but I couldn't remember where I saw it from. Then it struck me. It's from his booth at NYCC.

He did a great job on this, but I don't think his Buffy is getting better. If you look at his art in #23 and his pretty terrible art to #26, you'll notice that he's starting to get sloppy and very sketchy. Where are half those character's noses? I know there are a lot of characters, but wide-shots were Jeanty's #1 strength at the beginning of season eight. Comparing this to his covers like #15 and #11, or even his interior work, it seems as if he either is having trouble hitting deadlines and rushing, or just getting a bit too comfortale with the characters.
Looks like Buffy, Gambit, Deadpool(the guy in black and red), Green Lantern, Kid Justice, the guy from American Way. But who is that X-man on the left? I haven't read an X-book (except Astonishing) in a while. And what's with the hippo?

Very cool backdrop--excited to see it in person sometime soon!
what i find cool is: look at Georges' back drop art and then compare it to Buffy #26 Jo Chen Cover (the next image below on the page). There's a lot of similarities in terms of how characters have been arranged and positioned on the page, especially in Buffy's head's positioning. cool!

Who I believe you think is Kid Justice is actually Superboy; the X-Man is Bishop as he was in the 'Bishop: The Last X-Man' series which Georges drew (best use of the character ever, in my opinion); and I expect the hippo is a reference to Richard Starkings's Hip Flask.
Totally Niels! Thats what I meant. Young Justice Superboy....lol, who the hell is Kid Justice?
The hippo seema to be a big theme with Georges, on his website the first thing wee see is a big hippobefore we enter the site.
I can't help but worry that Georges' quality is going to drop on Buffy now that he's doing an additional ten pages a month for DC's Manhunter backup.
Riker, He is not, he did the Manhunter back up a while ago (we just talked about it when he sent me the image which is now up on the site)... it's just a one-shot thing, he's not doing it every month.
Where would someone from Southern California order their Buffy comics online? My local comic book shop just shut down. :(
FaithsTruCalling, u can order any Buffy comic at TFAW.com
