With Great Power... Comes Great Cover Art!

Now it can be shown, the fantastic cover art to With Great Power..., my forthcoming anthology of superhero prose stories, out from Pocket's new Gallery Books imprint in July.

This is really stupendous. Is the figure based off one of the stories specifically?

Lou Anders said...

No. Two reasons for that. One, wanted something to convey the entire book, not just one story. Two, in comics, when an artist illustrates a character for the first time, they share in copyright. Assured the comic writers who contributed to this only they owned the characters they created. Glad you like it.
