@xerox-kitty: Ascension #0 was included with an issue of the Wizard magazine. The Ascension "Preview Edition" (see top left corner of first cover) was possibly included with a different Top Cow book, but certainly not with another issue of Ascension. By the time the preview edition was released the series hasn't existed yet. (Nor did it come with an issue of Wizard, as it lacks the Wizard logo.)
- This is the page of Ascension #0. - This is the cover art that should be removed from that page, if there is no argument against it.
At least I cannot think of a reason to leave both issues combined in one page. Only thing they have in common is the title and that both came for free.
The first cover art on this page is probably just a preview and should be removed. The "plot summary" on that page also seems questionable. It is very detailed and includes the creator credits. Could be a copy & paste job from some magazine or site.
Regarding my previous inquiry... Personally, I'd tend to treat preview issues of comic-books as individual issues in a volume. Someone combined the "preview edition" and #0 of "Ascension" in one page here. (The two are not identical. I have both). I took the liberty to create an individual page of the "preview edition".
Which approach is preferable? Are preview issues deserving of their individual pages, regardless of whether they cost money or are for free? If the "Ascension" preview edition is permitted its own page, this cover art should be removed from the Ascension #0 page.
@spawndon: My opinion accounts for nothing...but here's what I think. In theory you've done a nice job. The mentioned disturbing elements are removed. And the added heat-art looks good on its own. But now there is a new element which makes the image look unprofessional to me - the new photoshopped background contrasts unnaturally with the character and what remains of the old background. The char and the original background have very strong inked outlines whereas the photoshopped new background is heavily smoothed. It doesn't mix well. Especially the old background now sticks out painfully. Maybe it would look better if you painted over all of the old background and added some strong lines to the heat-art? (Also, you accidentally painted over Firestorm's inked outlines in some parts, which enhances the unprofessional appearance.)
My suggestion would be to "free-lasso" (the free-hand selection tool in photoshop) the character and paste him into a new background which mixes better with the inks. That requires patience, though. You'd want the free-hand selection to be clean, so as not to break the ink lines. Very difficult with a mouse.
@jloneblackheart: I'm still a little confused. My first 3 wiki uploads were additional cover art and all 3 show up in my "Wiki Submissions"-list as "approved". No other of my cover art uploads are shown there, but as you insinuated, they all appeared eventually.
All good now. You can lock this thread, if you like. Thanks for taking the time and aiding me!
