Jim Lee's variant cover for DV8 #1

DC’s new co-publisher follows up yesterday’s announcement with a personal post on the Wildstorm blog. Jim Lee assures fans of his art that he still plans to keep drawing.

“For fans of my art–fear not, drawing comic books is actually a part of my new job description, and I actually plan on increasing the frequency of which you will be seeing my work,” he said. “It’s important to me not only on a personal level that I continue with a hand in the actual creation of new comics but also for a broader mission.”

The post also includes his artwork for the variant cover to the first issue of the DV8 relaunch, which is due in April.



Glad to hear it! Regardless of all the great artist who came before and after him, and despite how infrequent his output is anymore, Jim Lee is still one of the greatest comic book artists ever! I really hope to see him finish up All Star Batman and Robin — I don’t care how bad Frank Miller writes it; If Jim’s drawing it, I’m buying it. Nobody draws Batman better than Jim Lee to me.

He’s got a Legion alternative cover coming up too.

The guy holding the tree looks like Carlos : )

I think i love the design…. and will like to be a graphics artist….
