More Evolutionary Coverness (?) for THESE DEAD LANDS: DESOLATION

May 10, 2016 3 comments

First off, a correction for a previous post on this topic. Below is one of the alternate covers that was presented of Hastings bailing out onto the train. Wolf and I discarded it, not because it’s bad or anything, but just because it wasn’t sufficiently dramatic. It is good work, though!

Now, back on topic. We already agreed upon a format, and the next revision Marc sent to us is below:

Cover_D_01

Good stuff, but the main character seems a bit out of scale, and unless the Chinook is drifting sideways, he’s kind of away from where he should be. Another guy was added, blasting away at the dead. But Wolf’s major problem with this: the stars on Old Glory aren’t right. But as you may remember from this earlier iteration, it’s generally all sorts of good.

Marc’s latest revision…

Cover E

…has a different sky, a modified aspect, more guys, guns, and zombies–and oh yeah, Hastings actually kicking the head off a zombie. That was an unexpected surprise, and if he can get enough brackish gore in there, it’ll be perfect! Flag modified, our crew chief is whipping out the pistol, and some neat-o spark effects thrown in for good measure. Wolf approves, and so do I, so this is the launching pad for the final.

Now…if only I could deliver my pages so Mr. Wolf can start his slice… 😀
