The Gunslinger Art

by Michael Whelan

  • Silence came back in, filling jagged spaces…
  • They paused…looking up at the dangling, twisting bodes
  • The Way Station
  • He could see his own reflection…
  • The boy shrieked aloud…
  • There the gunslinger sat, his face turned up into the fading light
  • The Gunslinger

Wraith #1 by Joe Hill and Charles Paul Wilson III is sold out and headed back to press with this new cover by CPWIII.
So Locke & Key might be over now, but Joe Hill’s new series has just recently started rolling along (issue 2 hit stores a week ago; it runs for 7 issues).
This series spins out of Joe’s novel, NOS4A2, which tops many year-end lists (most recently, an impressive inclusion on Janet Maslin’s 10-best list for the New York Times), so you know it, like L&K, is something special. If you missed issue 1 before, you’ll be able to get this new printing early in the new year.
Incidentally, if we had time, I’d love to get a photograph of Joe and Charles with their best beatific smiles because I so love the 4th printing cover to Matt Fraction’s Sex Crimes #1, but I think the cover Charles whipped up above is pretty great, too.

For the morning crowd: Charles Paul Wilson III’s brilliant Wraith #5 cover and quite possibly my Christmas card image for the next 10 years.

I do.

Who cares about the page filled with evers? Lemony Snicket just made two whole pages black.

He don’t give a shit.

And that time he repeated an entire passage about deja vu to give the reader deja vu

Yep

What a series of unnecessary events

did you just

They did.

"What hurt you once will hurt you twice. This is not the beginning but the beginning’s end. You’d do well to remember that… but you never do."
