New BL Artwork

That ladies and gents in the cover art for Void Stalker, third in the Night Lords trilogy by Aaron Dembski-Bowden.

Cheers for both John Sullivan (the artist) and for Aaron. That is some amazing stuff. Someone is about to have a really, really bad time.

The artwork also reminds me of Batman, for obvious reasons I hope :P

The BL blog says there will be more new artwork released soon enough. Keep an eye out here as well for that folks.

I was with you for the first two thirds of that, and would tend to agree, the last 7 words lost me completely.

I love it when new artwork is released to the masses. I am really digging the skull in the background, though I can't help but feel as a whole there could be a bit more green to it.

Only if your a Green Lantern.

It just seems that the first two books have a clear and distinct colour scheme, and this one doesn't seem quite so distinct. Anyway the real important thing is the story inside as to opposed to how awesome the cover is, though it is still pretty darn awesome.

Crossovers man!

Anyways, agreed, the colour schemes were clear/distinct for the previous two books but perhaps the indistinct colour for this represents some theme within the novel?

What's not distinct about it? That's the tealest cover I've ever seen.

I'm not a huge fan, all told. It's nice enough, but it doesn't have much to grab me. Which is nice, because there's no chance in hell this book's not going to be bloody awesome.

Speaking of which, it's the big day for A D-B and Miss Brunt today. Hooray!

One thing that makes me wonder is if that little perch there really has the structual integrity to support several tons. I personally don't think so, so wondering just what is stopping that marine from plunging to death.

Hardy Fowler's Space Marines are my absolute favourite. The Doom Eagle from the front of Victories of the Space Marines is just wunnerful. Innit.

They are not ostentatious, that's for sure. Perhaps that's the attraction of them. I love the Koryn simply because he is Raven Guard (my favourite legion/chapter). Of the three new ones however, my absolute favourite is the Blood Angel.
