Image’s Variant Covers Will Look Especially Wicked + Divine In December


I’m going to go ahead and assume that you’ve all been reading The Wicked + The Divine, because it is amazing and since you’re currently reading ComicsAlliance, I already know that you’re a person with taste. With that being the case, you may have noticed that one of the most distinct parts of the book has been the covers, where artist Jamie McKelvie and colorist Matt Wilson (not to be confused with our own prodigious Arrow recapper) have been doing striking portraits of the cast’s faces.

It’s a pretty great look, and next month, they’ll be expanding that style to the rest of Image’s lineup, providing WicDiv-style variant covers for six of Image’s titles, marking new series and new story arcs.

The covers look awesome — you may have heard that McKelvie and Wilson are a pretty solid art team — but I can’t help but be reminded of that time that DC did an entire month of “head covers” featuring close-up portraits of their characters. That’s not a bad thing, either. I’m a big fan of stuff like that, and it’ll definitely make them stick out on your local shop’s new release wall.

The full list of titles featuring McKelvie and Wilson’s variant covers is as follows: Bitch Planet #1, Shutter #7, East of West #16, Rumble #1, Revival #26, and, er, The Wicked + The Divine #6. No, I’m not really sure how The Wicked + The Divine can have a Wicked + Divine variant either, but I bet it’s going to look pretty cool.
