THE ROYALS – BRIAN BOLLAND

Short and sharp post, this. But Brian Bolland’s alternate cover for THE ROYALS: MASTERS OF WAR #1 was released yesterday. And it’s a cracker:

Bolland

Love the fact that he’s really captured the characters, the tone of the series, the subversive edge. But, then again, he’s Brian Bolland. Bit of a thrill to have him draw anything concerned with a book of mine.

Also released yesterday was Simon Coleby’s similarly-fine cover for episode three:

Where the action takes The Royals to 1942 and The Battle of Midway. Each issue skips forward a year to a major set-piece event of World War II.

Here’s an interview I did with Newsarama where I describe the series as ‘Downton Abbey with superpowers’: http://www.newsarama.com/20049-vertigo-s-royals-masters-of-wa-downton-abbey-with-superpowers.html

Also worth saying that MISS FURY #8 came out yesterday from Dynamite. Jack Herbert continues to do great work on the series. Look:

Next week, REVOLUTIONARY WAR: THE KNIGHTS OF PENDRAGON is released from Marvel. The return of some old favourite Marvel UK characters, with a script by me and art by Will Sliney. Will talk more about that then.
