Lee Bermejo Issue 3 Variant Cover

I've seen this cover start to be solicited around the 'net, so figured it was time I posted it here in all its glory!

The amazingly-talented and rather-bloody-sound Lee Bermejo produced this beauty for the third issue of the book. It's unbelievably detailed; must've taken the guts of a week to draw! So very delighted with it.

I met Lee about ten years ago at San Diego comic con at the Wildstorm table, where he graciously accepted my request to take a look at my portfolio. He and the other new guys there were making big waves at Wildstorm at the time, and I really loved (and love) his work. I was surprised to find that he was a similar age to myself, and we chatted for literally hours about all sorts of bits and pieces.

After the show, we stayed in touch, with Lee giving me advice on this and that and critiquing my work every now and then. Just invaluable stuff. He's a true gent, and was high up on my wish-list for cover artists on HPD from the start.

I can't say enough good things about the man, he's just a lovely fella.
