  1. This is a pretty cool design. I dig the shoulder “arrow” lights – overall it looks like a sleek update of the Young Justice version of Black Manta.

    That said, the position of the shoulders vs the placement of the mask / eyes is a little disconcerting – that’s a really, really long neck.

  2. Kris Anka should have a full-time job redesigning any and all characters for comic book companies. Most of the characters from the New 52 already need it. This design is brilliant.

  3. I usually love Anka’s designs, but something about this falls flat for me. I think I miss the crazy, manta-shaped headpiece. It’s what made BM otherworldly and scary. As people have pointed out, I think Young Justice nailed the character’s design in a way this does not.

  4. This is very cool, very intimidating. Excellent line patterns & shapes in the upper chest & shoulders, I love the smaller head & thick neck carapace.
