This WEDNESDAY MARCH 26, The BUNKER #2 by Joshua Hale Fialkov (@joshfialkov) and I hits stores! To help you all remember to pick up a copy, I’m posting this short preview of the cover and first 5 pages.

As many of you know, issue #1 was practically an entire story arc in one issue. With issue #2 we ratchet it up even more as news of an imminent attack in San Francisco has Grady forced to either accept his role as prescribed or pursue a new future. Which will he choose?

Which would YOU choose?

The BUNKER #01 1st Printing Cover Process:

This Wednesday March 12th the 2nd Printing of The BUNKER #1 by Joshua Hale Fialkov and published by ONI Press will hit stands. To mark the occasion, I’ve put together this post about the process behind the creation of the 1st Printing cover.

Above you’ll see some sketches of early ideas for the cover. One of them was the idea of them snapping a polaroid to mark the occasion of their last weekend together. For my purposes it was an easy device to show them all together as a happy group of friends. The final cover in my head has the photograph faded with perhaps some lens flare to give the sense that these happy times are in the past…way in the past. Josh rightly pointed out that there wasn’t enough conflict in the image but the photo idea had taken hold and Josh deftly used it to frame the story of issue #1.

So next up, I prepared the sketch that we all agreed with. Between this sketch and the next fully colored and inked cover, you’ll notice the addition of the graffiti to the image of our characters. That was all Josh and came directly from the script for then digital Episode 5. One thing that this solved for us was the concern that when the comic went into the racks, the visible top third of the cover again lacked conflict. Not so now with the marker on their faces; the crossed eyes, horns fangs and crown give the image exactly what it needs.

Well, it appears those comics didn’t sit in the racks for very long because within 12 hrs of hitting store shelves, the 1st printing was sold out at the distributor with most stores out of stock within 24 hrs. Now, as you already know the 2nd printing lands this Wednesday with this cover. All I have to say is, if you like THIS one, wait until you see the prospective 3rd printing cover…but that’s up to you, isn’t it?

The BUNKER #1 2nd Printing Cover!
