Image comics for August: this is the cover for The Fade Out #1, drawn by Sean Phillips.
This is the cover for the deluxe hardcover of Scene Of The Crime, drawn by Michael Lark and Sean Phillips. Scene Of The Crime was an excellent mini-series written by Ed Brubaker, drawn by Lark and inked by Phillips, published back in 1999 at Vertigo. It’s great news that it’s getting the deluxe treatment.
This is a painting by Sean Phillips of the cover to a novel called City Of The Lost by Stephen Blackmore. That’s a good book cover.
Sean Phillips posted his painted cover to the DVD of Sweet Smell Of Success, and it’s quite beautiful.
Final cover from Marvel comics for January 2011: another excellent cover from Sean Phillips for Incognito, this time for issue 4, which is a really good series that you should be reading.
Yet another variant cover: Sean Phillips posted this gorgeous variant cover to Incognito volume 2 #1. It’s a brilliant pulp homage; I can’t wait to read more Brubaker and Phillips.
Comic book collection: Sleeper was a truly superb comic book by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. The two seasons, totalling 24 comics, was about an superpowered agent, Holden Carver, working undercover with the bad guys but with everybody thinking he’s really a bad guy because his handler is in a coma. It was well written and well drawn and, last I heard, Tom Cruise and Sam Raimi were attached to make a film of the book. The image is the cover to final issue #12 of the second season, which is beautifully mournful.
This is the cover for Incognito volume 2 issue 1 by Sean Phillips. That man can draw a great cover image.
From Sean Phillips, the cover to 7 Psychos #1. From Boom Comics. That’s all I know about it. But the cover looks great.
DC comics for April 2010: I really like the covers for the new Human Target series. This is for issue #3 by Sean Phillips.
Incognito has just finished, which means that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are back to Criminal. I really enjoyed Incognito, and I’m glad that the series will be returning, but more Criminal is a wonderful thing. This is the glorious cover to issue 1 of the new mini-series The Sinners, which looks to be another winner. See a preview and an interview with Brubaker at CBR [LINK].
Images from artist’s blogs: I don’t know what this picture is about, but it looks pretty damn cool. It’s from Sean Phillips’ blog, the artist mostly known for his brilliant collaborations with Ed Brubaker on Sleeper, Criminal and Incognito.
This is the cover to the second printing of Incognito #1 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. It’s a simple yet effective image, made more haunting by Phillips’ art.
