Earlier this week, artist Nick Derington shared his cover artwork for Mister Miracle #10, which is a fantastic close-up of Darkseid that balances detail and an impressively inverted photo-negative colour palette. Fans have been remixing the cover all week, turning out some eye-popping riffs on this vision of the Lord of Apokolips. Here are some of our favourites.

Mister Miracle has been one of the best superhero comics in recent years, thanks to the team of Tom King, Mitch Gerads and Clayton Cowles. Derington’s been delivering great covers for the whole run, but nothing’s quite captured the collective fancy like the Mister Miracle #10 cover.

Fans took a special shine to the image and Derington seems to love what they have been doing with it, if his Twitter feed is any indication.

saw people throwing colours on @NickDerington's Darkseid cover for Mister Miracle, and thought I'd jump in on this bandwagon since it's such a fun one. The lighting was already pretty dramatic in the pencils so I just tried to colour the shading of the pencils themselves p.much pic.twitter.com/rqDCJUtrQU
