It’s that blessed time of the year where we all try to take stock of what we’ve done with our lives and what other people have created that we enjoyed. That’s right, it’s time to start putting together our “Best of 2016″ lists, and today we’re going to take a look at the Best Boom Studios Covers of 2016.
After pinch-hitting with a four page contribution to the second issue of Welcome Back, Claire Roe takes over as full-time series artist for the third issue of the hit series about reincarnated assassins in a multi-generational cat-and-mouse game. She joins writer Christopher Sebela and replaces co-creator Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, who sadly had to step down for personal reasons, but will continue as cover artist.
Originally launched as a four-issue series, Welcome Back has been extended to open ended status after the first issue went to a third printing (and the second issue to a second). That's great news for relative newcomer Roe, whose previous credits include Saltire at Diamondsteel Comics and a short story for Vertigo's SFX anthology, and great news for the readers who get to discover her crisp, kinetic artwork!
