John Byrne goes digital for his variant covers for his upcoming new series Cold War: The Michael Swann Dossier.
The first arc/mini-series titled The Damocles Contract has a nice looking variant cover for issue #2. Comics legend Byrne is testing out a style for his digitally mastered poster type variant covers.
The premise of the series was described by John Byrne as follows:
Yes, the new series is called COLD WAR, subtitled THE MICHAEL SWANN DOSSIER, and it’s about a former MI6 agent who accepts the occasional “special assignment” from Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Set during the titular time period, but (trust me on this!) NOT a history book!
This ongoing espionage series of mini-series is to alternate with his Next Men follow-up title Next Men: Aftermath. The first issue is expected this Fall.
