John Cassaday Pays Homage To Gil Kane With Champions #1 Cover

John Cassaday has been taped to do a retailer exclusive cover for Marvel's Champions #1. The fan-favorite artist decided to pay homage to the original Gil Kane Champions #1 cover from October of 1975. Cassaday was only 4 years old when the original issue debuted. The cover is being offered up by Dynamic Forces in either color and signed by writer Mark Waid or black & white.

The original Champions ran for only a handful of issues and featured Angel, Iceman, Black Widow, Ghost Rider and Hercules. The new series focuses on the younger members of the Marvel Universe: Miles Morales, Nova, Cyclops, Viv Vision, Mrs Marvel and the totally awesome Hulk.
