Frank Cho's Outrage Sketch Covers From Baltimore Comic Con

When Frank Cho goes to comic conventions, he creates a number of original sketch covers, using superhero characters that recall his comic strip style of Liberty Meadows. Originally dubbed the 'Outrage' covers after a specific reuse of Spider-Gwen that incensed the original creators of the character, it doesn't seem to have stopped him, and he has continued with a focus on satirical concepts of sexuality expressed in comic book covers, and the consumption of wheat cakes. Here are three from Baltimore Comic Con, sketch covers for Sandman Universe, Aquaman and Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy… so how will 2021 treat Frank Cho? Compared with 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016 below?
