FIRST LOOK: Black Cloak #1 Jeff Dekal Variant Cover!
So excited to show you guys this one!
I’m a huge Jeff Dekal fan — scrolling though is Instagram is like a dream — a dream of me imagining all the characters I want to write — because he brings them to life so powerfully. There’s often a noir-edge (in my opinion) to Dekal’s stuff that hits RIGHT in my sweet spot and is probably one of the many reasons I’m such a fan.
If you’re not following Jeff already you really do need to remedy that! In the meantime, check out this gorgeous BLACK CLOAK #1 Variant he did for us of Essex. Illustration by Jeff Dekal, cover design by Rian Hughes:
And because I can’t help myself here’s a random sampling of some favorites from Dekal’s insta - some of which are available for purchase as prints at his storefront. He does ALSO draw dudes (very well) but as you can see below… I maybe have a type?
Okay. This episode of the Jeff Dekal hour is over! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope you are pumped for that sharp as hell BLACK CLOAK variant. I cannot wait to hold it in my hands! And keep in mind — that first issue is around 60 pages — gonna feel SO GOOD!
All right. I have to spend the afternoon at the DMV. And I hope for better afternoons for ALL OF YOU than that.
Talk soon. Be safe. Be kind. Especially to yourself. <3
That cover hits the spot alright! 👌 loving the Catwoman covers Jeff is doing atm -
Also, not fair to show me those Dekal prints when the shipping to the UK would destroy me! 😭
The cover is awesome, but you probably just cost me some money because I NEED that first X-23 print! NEEEEEEEEEED IT. Laura's pretty much my top favorite character.
