This is a great piece of art in the context of the history of Valiant comics. Imagine what this cover art would be worth if the “Harbinger” movie is ever made and successful. Even without movies Harada will always be an interesting comic character.

I also made a significant Valiant original cover art purchase on Christmas day. Nothing on this level (BWS VH1 Solar #3 cover art!)…. but 2012 VEI significant (to me). Just have to wait a couple of weeks for mail arrival.

Happy New Year’s Eve, Eve to all!

Great piece, Juki!!

That original looks even better than the published colour version - I appreciate the effect they were going for by inverting the colours on the line work of the creatures and all that, but it’s very cool to see the ink work on them in that original. :thumb: :thumb: :clap:
