released today!: ultra limited edition Ghost Variant for Sex Criminals issue 1

If you are into comics, you may have heard about Ghost Variant, a mysterious entity who puts out awesome variant covers for various comic book publishers. They don’t announce till the day the issue comes out, and you can only purchase the issues through very limited number of comic book shops in US and Canada. It lives up to the name.

I am happy to announce my variant cover for Ghost Variant is released today, for issue #1 of Sex Criminals by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky. There is Chip’s own story on how it came about, but that story aside, I have known Chip (I simply know him as Steve) for close to ten years, and he is a dear friend of mine. When he asked me if I wanted to be on board, I didn’t even need to think twice. …ok, that’s a lie. Yes, I got abducted by guys in a van and forced to create this cover.

Joke aside, this variant issue comes out in ultra limited edition. Get one before it’s gone. Here is the list of the stores who carry them.
