Revealing… the cover for Endangered and More Strange Stories

Here is the finished cover by Lee Robinson, as well as the pencils and thumbnail so you can chart Lee’s process for putting together the piece.

Endangered and More Strange Stories is the new comic by Art Heroes. Written by Daniel Clifford, drawn by Lee Robinson and edited by Mark Johnson.

40 full-colour pages of original all-ages stories and tips on making your own comic books. The book will be available at LICAF, Thought Bubble and have its official launch at Newcastle City Library on Saturday 25th October. And, right now, we’re looking at the very cheap cover price of £2.50.
