2019 Comic Book with a nice look

Found a picture of this online.  It's an alternate "F*ck Face Variant" comic book cover released in May 2019.  Aberrant Season Two, Issue #2.  I don't know anything about the series but love the cover!  A nice tribute to the FF.

From actionlabcomics:  
ABERRANT was perhaps the last major comic series created inside Los Angeles pop culture bastion Meltdown Comics. The geekdom landmark sadly just announced it would be closing its doors after 25 trendsetting years.
David, a U.S. Army Special Operations Commander, distraught after losing his entire unit to a superhuman attack, wages an absolutely brutal one-man war on the eccentric billionaire and former superhero, Lance Cordrey, whom he believes is ultimately responsible. That is until Nelson Little, the head of a clandestine paramilitary outfit called Article 13, provides David with evidence that Cordrey may be a patsy, and David’s men were killed as part of a vast and twisted government/military conspiracy.

1988 Wire Photo

Picked up a cheap wire photo dated 4/23/1988.  It has the title "Frustration".  The Orioles started 1988 losing their first 21 games.  Manager Cal Sr. was fired after the first week and Billy began to wear his father's #7 jersey.  This photo is closely related to the 5/3/1988 cover of Sports Illustrated.  "I'm so mad.  What should I write on this bat?" 😅
