“Gene provides variant covers to our five Bad land one-shots, âPeyer told ComicBook. âTaken together, they make up a portfolio of shots from our main cast that is suitable for the scoping. Sometimes I get asked why we are reprinting our cover on the back covers, without the logos, copy and barcodes. Art like this is why. “
You can see the cover below.
“Tom Peyer and Jamal Igle created a clever premise with Bad land it is deeply satisfying read. All it needed was more red hair, “Simone said when announcing the project.” Our story is about a town, a small town and the people who live in the town, y including a serious redhead, who is sort of in love with two girls. From a distance, this city presents itself as so many other small towns in the world: safe, decent, innocent. Get closer, however, and you start to see the shadows, especially the long, dark shadow of the dragonfly. ”
