On his “Orbital Operations” mailing list today, The Wild Storm writer Warren Ellis shared Jon Davis-Hunt’s cover to issue #7 “a little early.”
“I wanted to go a bit sideways on the covers for issues 7-12, and found myself shouting at Jon and Marie [Javins, the book’s editor] about 1970s science fiction paperback covers, and sending stuff by the likes of Peter Elson, Jim Burns and the holy goddamn Angus McKie. (Who was also a rather fine comics-maker.) And I got this back. Perfect,” Ellis wrote. “Issues 7-12 are going to be a little different, tonally, from the first six. If you liked the first six, you won’t hate the next six, but, having laid the groundwork for the book, I can now do larger, weirder set pieces without breaking anything.”
The Wild Storm #7 arrives Sept. 20.
