Angel: After The Fall 3 Variant Cover



Hey y'alls. Pleased to report that the new Angel book is selling like gangbusters, IDW's highest seller ever in fact. Also nice is the fact that its actually very good, Brian's script is bang-on in terms of the voice and tone of the show, and personally I'm a big fan of Franco's art. You'll have a job on yer hands finding the issues with my covers as they're only available in the states and have a relatively small print run. These covers are pretty tough to execute, as the people coming up with the concepts aren't thinking about em from an artistic standpoint, just pouring as many cool ideas as they can think of into a paragraph description. Then I gotta try and marry all the elements and fashion some sort of decent composition. Fun though! Really glad to be involved, truth be told. Anyhoo, here're the B+W and coloured versions, colours again by the lovely Ms. Jackson.

It reminds me of that Next Gen episode where Worf and Troy are old-timey western sheriffs for no reason. Probably the best cover so far though. Nice composition.
