Complimentary copies of the second issue of this creator-owned series I’m lettering have arrived, and look great. The epic fantasy is getting more epic, and I think the ultra-wide-screen format (running across both pages of each landscape format spread) is working well, but that’s for readers to ultimately decide. The printing and paper are top notch, with a cover as thick as card stock, and the back of the book contains lots of extras. Reader reviews of the first issue I’ve seen look positive. I don’t know when this issue is out in shops, but look for it soon.
Also arrived are two cover variants of the Raw Cut edition. This is for fans who want to see the art as it left J.H. Williams III’s drawing board (or computer more accurately these days, after scanning), and before colors by Dave Stewart were added. My lettering is there, but translucent so more of the art shows through. This is similar to what was done for SANDMAN: OVERTURE. I’m not sure, but I think these editions will follow one month after the regular ones.
Great stuff for fans of J.H., now you can see some of what I’ve been working on with him over the last five years!
