Okay this is a little unusual: AfterShock and comiXology are teaming to offer limited-time exclusive digital connecting covers for several titles. These digital variants will only be available until May 11th and in a surprise twist, the artist is none other than AfterShock SVP, Digital-Creative Mike Zagari, who has a parallel career as an indie cartoonist. Gabe Eltaeb provides the colors.
Each comics will be released over the course of the next month, but can be pre-ordered now. As we mentioned a few days ago, variant covers appeal to a completist mentality, and here’s a special edition that doesn’t even take up space in your long box.
The books included in the project include InSEXts #10 (Marguerite Bennett & Ariela Kristantina), Rough Riders: Riders on the Storm #2 (Adam Glass & Patrick Olliffe), Black-Eyed Kids #12 (Joe Pruett & Szymon Kudranski), Shipwreck #4 (Warren Ellis & Phil Hester), Animosity #6 (Marguerite Bennett & Rafael de Latorre), Jackpot! #5 (Ray Fawkes & Georges Duarte), and Captain Kid #5 (Mark Waid, Tom Peyer & Wilfredo Torres).
