That Denys Cowan & Bill Sienkiewicz Shaft Cover

Yesterday, we brought you the exciting news that the top secret project David Walker has been cryptically tweeting about was none other than Dynamite Comics’ upcoming Shaft comic! To learn more about how this collaboration came about — and what you can expect from the series — check out Albert Ching’s exclusive interview with David at Comic Book Resources.

Speaking of collaborations, one of the things I’m most excited about are all the variant covers for issue #1 — especially the one by living legends Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz! After the jump, you can see the cover everyone has been raving about (featuring beautiful colors by Ivan Nunes). We’ve also attached — with Denys’ permission — a version with just the original pencils and inks as well!

Seeing both versions together really provides a window into the artistic process of how a comic cover comes about. Shaft #1 by David Walker and Bilquis Evely should be in comic shops in December. Look for solicit information for the book in the October Diamond PREVIEWS catalog, which should be available at your local comic shop next week.
