McKelvie and Wilson Portray Comics in December


Image Comics likes to push boundaries. Try new things. Enlist artists to lend their artistic interpretation to a series of covers for new launches and story arcs. That's what they're doing with Jamie McKelvie and Matthew Wilson, both of whom are contributing covers to titles such as Bitch Planet #1, Shutter #7, Rumble #1, Revival #26, The Wicked + The Divine #6 and East of West #16.

"We're huge fans of all the creators behind these series,” said McKelvie. “So to be asked to provide covers for them all this month was an honour. Hopefully fans will enjoy these glimpses of the characters fired through the WicDiv filter!"

Retailers interested in the McKelvie/Wilson covers should refer to the Image Comics Retailer Newsletter for ordering information or inquire with their Diamond Customer Service representative. Bitch Planet #1 (Diamond Code OCT148037) Cover B and Shutter #7 (Diamond Code OCT148038) Cover B by McKelvie and Wilson will hit shelves on December 10. Order details of East of West #16 cover by McKelvie and Wilson to come.
