The first official image of Morbius from 2008 (top) and then the most recent (early 2013)
Some things have changed but not too much, haha!
Mostly the anatomy of his body. He's more elongated and thin in appearance as opposed to having a mutated canine body.
Also in 2008 the 'skull' used to be a mask that covered a skinned and ragged face [hence the strap], but now [2013 and beyond] it is his head. Non-removable!
Yep.

I'll scrap this later, but I just thought it was fun to compare the two, haha!

I dont see a difference. :/ The coloring is different, but the outline is exactly the same...just being honest. No hard feelings.

Well if you would just look at it...there is a LITTLE bit of a difference... like the mouth, for instance. The paws or...feet, are different. Not much things are different. Look at the back leg, except for the paws. They look the same... unless you color it like the 2013 one. It woul look like you drew it in 2013... im just saying some features are the same. Agaon, no hard feelings :).

Well, this was a redraw so I did try to keep some aspects of it the same ^^; Not everything, like his anatomy and posture has changed a bit, but yeah, many things are the same in the character's design and likeness. 
No hard feelings :) I was just confused as to what you meant ^^;

The thing I love most about talented artists is seeing their old work and how much they improved.
There's no better motivation and inspiration than to see that.

Your pose in the 2013 is a lot more fluid, the shading/lighting is much more complex, and the black liquid coming from his mouth is drawn more stringy and gooey {for lack of better words}
Keep up the fantastic work! ;u;

It's a soon to be graphic novel which is a collaborative effort of several people. It's not quite in the works just yet but it will hopefully get sorted and set up for beginning by the end of this year. IF all goes well, otherwise early next year ^^
