28 DAYS LATER #10 COVER




















I've seen the solicits for this issue online so i reckon it's okay to show it here.

This is my cover (cover B) for #10 of 28 Days Later. Really wanted to try a bold composition and use the negative space to frame one side of the image. I was trying to come with something 'iconic' with this cover, so that it illustrates the overall story of the book (heading for London) rather than the specific story in this particular issue.

[EDIT: Also, be sure to head over to the Eclectic Micks blog this week as to celebrate the release of the 28 Days Later hardback collection, we're doing a 28 Days Later theme week; Infected Micks. Stephen Mooney has already posted a fantastic rendition of Selena.]

Lovely cover. Although where the heck is she if London and Aberdeen are the same direction?

Declan Shalvey said...

She's still in the very North of Scotland which is well above Aberdeen (and London too obviously). There's a main road that goes south from there that'll take you to Aberdeen too. I looked it up.
