Hi. How are you? I’ve got some SHIELD #2 preview art for ya.
Above is my variant cover. And here is Gerald Parel’s fantastic painted cover followed by the first 5 pages.
That’s right, it’s got everything, a reinvention of the type writer, a super close up of an eye, an old guy with glowing tats, Kirby crackles, a gross monster woman with boobies, and so much more.
This hits stands Jun 9th. That’s THIS WEEK!
I hope everyone likes it. It’s different than issue 1 but there is so much in it that I think is cool.
Speaking of issue 1: It is going into it’s 3rd print. That’s right! Sold out again! I honestly don’t know what to say about this. It’s crazy. Thanks to everyone who’s bought it. Everyone involved on this book is putting everything they’ve got into making it something special, and I think, if you stick with it you wont be disappointed. It’s going to be a wild ride.
Here’s a look at the 3rd print variant cover.
It’s a lucky thing I laid the 2 page spreads out the way that I did with the central focus being on the right hand side. It almost seems like I meant for them to be wrap-around covers.
Here’s a little behind the scenes of my cover sketches for the first 2 covers.
I decided to render them in gray scale so that Christina and I could be totally in sink with the lighting. I think it’s worked out really well. She dose great work and always manages to think of something that I wouldn’t have thought of that makes things better.
I’ll leave you with my Nostradamus sketches.
