Bleeding Cool told you that Paul Grist would be drawing some of the upcoming The Union #1 as well as writing it. Well, Paul has clarified it will be just one page. But he is also doing a variant cover, and this morning he tweeted that out as well. And just in time for this weekend's Final Order Cut-Off date as well.
British cartoonist Paul Grist is best known for his creator-owned and self-published comic books, Burglar Bill, Kane and Jack Staff, which he moved to Image Comics as well as starting Mudman there. His art style sits somewhere between Dave Sim and Roger Langridge, with the intensity of light and shade of Frank Miller and Mike Mignola. He is also known for St. Swithin's Day, written by Grant Morrison, Grendel: Devil in Our Midst, written by Steven T. Seagle and Judge Dredd: Kinky Boots written by Robbie Morrison. He was tapped to write new British superhero book, The Union, from Marvel, initially planned to be published earlier this year but now rewritten, redrawn and rescheduled for December.
