This is wonderful.

Looks like the speculation about the T-shirt is confirmed. I suppose the wound on his chest is constantly bleeding through his shirts. Must cost a fortune in dry-cleaning...

Yeah not sure I get that. I thought nanites would heal him not keep him bleeding.

Other than that, I think this looks like a pretty cool set up. I hope its done well. Multiple memories sounds like it could get confusing from a story telling point of view.

Whoever guessed that there was an artist to do the present and the other to do the past was spot on ... that's why there are 2 artists on this book.

Now that I see the AJA cover in whole I'm digging it. Better than the XO :thumb:

I am very interested to hear or eventually read the clarification this. I can't believe he is constantly bleeding because that would mean that the nanites have some level of constant exposure outside his body.

I thought the same, but it's clearly a T-shirt with blood....uh...bleeding through.

Perhaps it's just an image of the day he is transformed, moments after he destroys everyone in the operating room...?

Right. Maybe it took him a while to change his shirt.

Maybe he's a Red Lantern and his blood comes from his chest instead of his mouth? :?

I'm sure that was a mistake by IGN and not VEI.

I remember asking about volume numbers a while back and never got a solid response. Alhtough technically this should be volume 3, I believe VEI is going with volume 1 for the relaunch.

Well they are just character sheets I have some Magnus ones that Mike McKone did that look VERY different from what actually was used in the book.

Looks like they were/are experimenting with combining the look of the original and Acclaim version.
