In the last couple of years it’s become less and less of a surprise to see comic art appear on an artist’s website or DeviantArt account… but this is the first time a sneak peek has come out as an eBay auction, BEFORE the comic ships.
Josh Howard, who let us know about the Summer one-shot from IDW by letting the cat out of the bag on Twitter, has posted his original cover art for the issue on eBay, thus giving us our first look at the second of two covers. Unlike previous IDW Ghostbusters comics, which often had at least three covers, the convention themed Con-Volution will only have the two.
Howard posted the final coloured cover, but the auction is for the original, inked black and white art only.
Thanks to grundelesque at GBFans.com for the spot.
Readers will recall we’d previously mentioned that rumblings had started over IDW’s next one-shot Ghostbusters comic, entitled CON-volution.
Well, writer Jim Beard popped into the PC comments to share some more info;
Hi, all. Jim Beard here, one half of the writing team of CON-VOLUTION.
The holiday in question here is 4th of July, sometimes known as Independence Day (or for our friends across the Pond, “that little 1776 uprising”). Rest assured that suitable nods to said holiday are made.
Plus, yeah, Keith Dallas and I consider Comic-Con a holiday, regardless 😉
Hope you will take a look when its out or order in advance – we’re dead excited about it and thrilled to pieces that Josh Howard is illustrating it. Gives the book a ghost of a chance, you might say.
Thanks for all the chatter about the book!
Btw, IIRC, there’s only two covers and they come in a 1:1 ratio at the comic shops. They’re both AMAZING. And as the plan stands now, both Keith and I will be at SDCC signing copies and would love to meet and and all ‘Busters fans.
