Abe Sapien Trade front piece by Devilpig Abe Sapien Trade front piece by Devilpig
Originally this design lost out over the one that was used for the first issue of a two issue story arc "The Devil does not jest" but when my editor asked if I could alter that cover to include the tag line "and other stories" for the trade paperback, I asked if I could go back and finish off this design. So here it is.

This cover makes me so want to read this book right now, but I know we have to wait patiently for it. I know I keep saying it, but it's true. Your layout and design is pretty damn cool. I liked this picture the instant I saw the thumbnail.

That's pretty awesome. Is this going to be the cover for the trade paperback? I only ask because Mike Mignola has always done the covers for the collections.

I'm glad you got to finish this one. When you showed your sketches for the covers a while back, I remember seeing this one and thinking, "I almost prefer this one". It came out really well, much better than the sketch. The very precise placement of the text really works.

Oops. I take it back. It won't be the trade cover. You're right, Mignola will be doing it. This will be the front piece cover.

Oh god, the money I'd give for this, either with or without text, to be a print? Astronomical amounts.

I'm creating a blog called Cover Eh-Meh where I showcase forgettable mediocrity in comic cover art. You sir, are not welcome there. Nice cover.

Is the background supposed to be in gold? The color blocking looks a little awkward to me.

Maybe you need a new monitor if that color looks like gold.

I was looking at it on my laptop. It's different on my desktop for sure, but it looked like that muddy reflection that happens when you scan in a reflective gold card stock or gold paint.
