Behold THE SPIDER, Master of Men!
I just received permission from the publisher to post Dan Brereton's fantastic first cover for my new comic book series of THE SPIDER!
A month or so ago, after we were lucky enough to score SPIDER paintings from Dan, I predicted that his unique interpretation would instantaneously make him the definitive SPIDER cover artist--and I believe it has. This is exactly what I see lurking in the monstrous mazes of my mind while writing the character. I love Dan's palette of rich ominous oranges and deep midnight blacks, perfect for the first issue's release around Halloween.
THE SPIDER, Master of Men # 1 is titled "Death Siege of the Frankenstein Legion", written by me and illustrated by the legendary Pablo Marcos.
Coming this Autumn from Moonstone.
