We’re marching close to the release of Jake Hawking & the Bounty Hunters, a Jake Hawking short-story collection. My good friend and comic artist Peter Simeti is once again doing the cover for this collection. He did the covers for the solo stories that are part of this series.
He started working on the cover earlier this week and last night was tweeting out some progress shots. Here’s the most recent version of the cover, the inks.
Holy smokes. This will probably be the best cover yet. Hawking’s got that roguish smirk that says “She’s gonna mess you up” and Little Queen is just absolutely frightening in the background. That ax looks mean as hell and I think Little Queen has been hitting the gym. Look at those arms. Bruiser.
Safe to say, I’m stoked for this cover and to release the first three Hawking stories in this print collection. There’ll also be some bonus material, including two non-Hawking related priate stories, and a couple of piratical poems.
