So Who Actually Drew Chip Kidd’s Convergence Variant Covers Anyway?
Posted January 30, 2015 by by Rich Johnston

It’s on all the solicitations for the variant covers running through DC’s Convergence event.

But what is missing is the name of the original art that Chip has taken and twisted into  a uniform look. The lack of credit certainly isn’t Chip’s fault, but does this mean the original artists will be denied a cover fee?

In interviews and features on this promotion, there is no mention of the original artists, even at they existed. Treated as found art, because they are owned by DC, that aspect has been done away with. It’s all very Lichtenstein, fifty years on…
