Hey so my “Artist Edition” variant cover for Star Trek: Khan #2 was solicited the other day. This isn’t the final art, but it’s close enough. The print version will have a new Khan and slightly better aging effects. I’ll post it here when its out in November.
The concept was partially inspired by Lex Luthor’s statue collection of world-conquerors (minus Hitler). I was aiming for something of an 80’s Mazzucchelli style.
Also a handful of the many sketches it took to get the likeness down. This one was a ton of work, but totally worth it.
Doing a cover that is villain+Star Trek+vintage as possible is a dream combo, so glad for the opportunity. I’ve got a couple more things coming up for IDW, so keep an eye out!
