“Wicked and Divine” Themed Variants Coming Next Month

Posted on November 17, 2014 at 6:29 am by Tyler Waterman

Kieron Gillen and Jaime McKelvie’s The Wicked and the Divine has been an absolute smash hit, much to the surprise of absolutely no one. The storytelling is top-notch, and as always, McKelvie’s iconic art style and fierce full-face covers have really made the series pop. Now, Image is looking to carry that imagery across six books this December, marking either the launching of new titles or new story arcs with Wicked and Divine-style variant covers. Take a look at the press release and a look at three of the upcoming variants. Something that catches your eye? Be sure to let your local shop know, as I’m sure these variants will fly off the shelves… you know, the same way every other Image title does!

The two lend their artistic interpretation to six new story arcs
and series launches
Bestselling artists Jamie McKelvie (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, Young Avengers) and Matthew Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) team up to lend their artistic interpretation to a series of covers for six highly anticipated new launches and critically acclaimed series’ new story arcs coming from Image Comics this December.

“We’re huge fans of all the creators behind these series,” said McKelvie. “So to be asked to provide covers for them all this month was an honour. Hopefully fans will enjoy these glimpses of the characters fired through the WicDiv filter!”

The titles that will feature variant covers by McKelvie/Wilson include BITCH PLANET #1, SHUTTER #7, RUMBLE #1, REVIVAL #26, THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #6, and EAST OF WEST #16.

Retailers interested in the McKelvie/Wilson covers should refer to the Image Comics Retailer Newsletter for ordering information or inquire with their Diamond Customer Service representative.

BITCH PLANET #1 (Diamond Code OCT148037) Cover B and SHUTTER #7 (Diamond Code OCT148038) Cover B by McKelvie and Wilson will hit shelves on 12/10. Order details of EAST OF WEST #16 cover by McKelvie and Wilson to come.
