For those of you who love J Scott Campbell (and I’m getting ready to write something on Danger Girl this week) have we got good news for you. J Scott Campbell will be providing cover artwork for all 10 second issues from Aspen Comics 10 for 10 series in 2013. One of the masters of drawing beautiful women and the company that has more beautiful women than any other comic book publisher on the planet. Sounds like a match made in heaven to me. Get your bags boards and frames ready. But first, get ready to hear all about it from Aspen Comics themselves and check out some of the art!
Aspen Comics continues to add more incentive for fans and new readers to join in on the publishers’ tenth anniversary initiative with the announcement of superstar artist J. Scott Campbell coming aboard to provide covers for all ten “10 for 10” issue #2 releases. Aspen Editor-in-Chief Vince Hernandez discusses the addition of Campbell to their growing “10 for 10” initiative:
“It was a no-brainer for us to ask Jeff to join in our hugely ambitious plans for 2013 and to celebrate our ten-year anniversary with us. Besides the fact that his art is always a visual delight and truly amazing; he’s been a good friend and played a big part in the success in our first decade in the industry as well. Some of Jeff’s earlier covers for Fathom and Soulfire were some of our most memorable and classic to date. So for us, it’s just a continuation of a wonderful collaboration with Campbell that will result in ten amazing covers for fans to collect!”
All of Aspen’s issue #2’s as part of their “10 for 10” initiative will feature the retailer incentive exclusive edition by J. Scott Campbell, and Aspen encourages fans and new readers to check with their local retailer for details on how to reserve their copy.
