Time Masters: Vanishing Point Cover

Starting next month DC Comics is publishing a series called Time Masters: Vanishing Point, a spin-off/tie-in to Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne. I drew a variant cover for the first issue of Time Masters immediately after finishing my Bruce Wayne issue, and today the official DC blog previewed the finished color art. You can see the piece above or click HERE to go to the post at the DC blog. I think the colors are by Dave McCaig (who colored our Bruce Wayne cover)--at least that's who inker Karl Story and I begged editor Mike Carlin to get for the job...Anyway, I think the big central figure on the cover resembles my take on Bruce Wayne's face a bit too much, but I was very happy to get to finally draw the real Batman again! Also, I believe this piece marks the first time I've drawn Green Lantern (the classic Hal Jordan version) for publication.

You've had your perfect inker for a while in Karl-- now I think you've found your perfect colorist. Personally, I LOVED working with Dave.

This is Awesome!
I'm excited and can't wait to have it in my hands.

Thanks, Allysons Attic! And I agree with you about Karl and Dave, Cully. I was blown away by how good Guy Major was on Return of Bruce Wayne too--it was a shock to see him repeatedly color scenes exactly as I saw them in my head (even better, in fact). This is the first year in a while (maybe forever) I've preferred the printed comics to my b&w photocopies!

Yeah, I worked with Guy on BLUE BEETLE. He's top notch!

I think you did a great job on Green Lantern, and would love to see you draw more of him. I'm sure you could create some pretty awesome constructs.
