Today we turn our attention to the key artist that’s made Project: Rooftop possible — our co-founder Dean Trippe. Dean contributed to the site both in reviews and with his own art, and we’re highlighting his contributions over the years. – Chris A.
Always thought that version of Superman was underrated, Supes is one of the few heroes who could pull off wearing mostly white. Lose the blue wrists cuffs and belt buckle, refine the ‘S’ a bit and you have the best redesigned Superman outfit ever.
Listen; let me tell you something about Dean Trippe — he’s awesome.
I don’t remember seeing that Green Arrow before. Really nice.
The ribs on the Specter are phenomenal, & anytime Dean Trippe touches Stephanie Brown, something magical happens. Wait, that sounds terrible, I take it back. Dean Trippe is a good artist & draws a mean Stephanie! There, that is better.
Ha, speed-walking Kid Flash is great. The little belly-jewel on Superman puzzles me, but otherwise it’s nice. Agreed he does a good Steph. I wonder which of his Supergirl costumes he likes better?
Can’t believe I haven’t seen those Spectre and Green Arrow designs before now. They’re amazing! Love your work, Dean.
Dean Trippe! Our ambassador to silver age class and taste.
Wait, “Dean contributed to the site both in reviews and with his own art . . .”
I noticed he hasn’t posted here in almost a year and didn’t participate in the last contest. Does that mean he doesn’t review here anymore?
Dean is still an active part of the site, but I’ve taken the lead more to give him more time for comics.
Word. Right on. And thats the best thing that could happen for both fans of Dean work, and this website.
I’d love to see other artists tackle that Iron Man, it’s sublime.
Thanks guys! Man, swell post, Chris. Really nice trip down redesign memory lane. :)
Yeah, Chris and I still talk things over and inject our own ideas and scout for arts to post, but Chris is expertly managing the day to day posts and helping keep us on a regular schedule, so I can focus on Power Lunch, Butterfly, and the World of Heroes comic shop.
Shiner – I like the Supergirl with the red skirt and blue tights the best. Slap a modern “S” symbol on it, and I think it’d be good to go. :)
I’ve always loved that Supergirl and Spoiler. They are damn ear perfect.
Very simple… which is not simple to attain. the colors are great specially the hues on the bat.
I second everyone that the Green Arrow is really lovely :) I also particularly like Spoiler’s design!
Wonderful style and always with imagination!
Is Iron Man supposed to be wearing DOT gloves?
