Nick Runge Variant Cover


This cover by Nick Runge started popping up online today, so figured I may as well post it here with the official titles and logos. Nick is a good friend of mine from back in the ANGEL days at IDW, and a hell of a nice guy. He's also an amazing cover artist, working on a myriad of books, from GHOSTBUSTERS to GI JOE and everything in between.

I LOVE this cover! So, so much. It makes me very nervous about the quality of my own covers, frankly. But still! HUGE thanks to Nick for this, whatta pal. I owe him, BIG-time.

Nick also has a creator-owned WW2 themed-book called FEVER RIDGE coming from IDW in February (be sure to watch out for it, it looks amazing), and I've agreed to contribute a guest cover to that book in return for this beauty for HPD. No pressure there then!

Art trades are fun. We're hoping to swap the actual physical artwork too whenever we next meet up, so hopefully this bad-boy will reside on a wall in the Moonbase in the near future.
