Note: In this year’s Marvel event series Fear Itself, long-time P:R favorite artist Stuart Immonen is at the top of his game and getting the opportunity to design and re-design numerous characters. The recently released first issue debuted a radically different, Norse-inspired design for the Red Skull’s daughter Sin, who has taken up the name ‘Skadi’. – Chris A.
In the Fear Itself: Sketchbook, Stuart Immonen explained his approach to Skadi’s design, saying:
The design challenge for this character was to honor her previous incarnations while incorporating quasi-Norse ophidian elements. Moreover, the idea was to make her look powerful, imposing, and god-like. Nothing like raising the bar from page one, right?
