I think its a perfect companion to one of my other favorite covers Mico did for Eternal Warrior #4

Perfect companions! Really nice. I'm partial to the Eternal Warrior, but they are both nice..

Nice! :thumb:

I almost picked it up, as it is simply amazing and the prices was "acceptable"

Ended up going with "unannounced" Eternal Warrior cover and an Armor Hunters cover. Still, Mico's work on this cover is quite stunning, and easily the BEST Ninjak to date.

Can't wait to see it! Armor Hunters is a good call!

So that was you. I originally thought the price was a little high... when this cover first came up I immediately contacted Court with an offer, but he didnt want to budge on the price. Then couple of week ago I contacted him again. He told me somebody that bought Mico's Armor Hunters cover was interested in making time payments on this one. I got a little discount and pulled the trigger.

This cover is ridiculous, if I was not limiting myself to XO and Solar, you guys would have serious competition for that one, I love the character of Ninjak. Curious, pm me with what you paid, just for info. I would love a commission of XO in that style.

He did a similar X-O cover. It hasn't been solicited yet, so I 'll send it to you in a PM. Mico asked me not to reveal it until its been officially solicited.

With a great piece like this, I personally would hunt down a 9.8 candidate for both the Mico's sketch variant AND the colored versions of UNITY #5, and then either take them to Capital City Comic Con (July 11-13 in Austin, TX) or submit them to the guys at ComicSketchArt.com (if you can't make it), and get the books signed, graded, and slabbed. THEN, I would frame the Cover AND both SS Slabs together for the ULTIMATE UNITY DISPLAY!

Finally, having achieved an uncommon level of perfection, and enjoying it for a while, I would PM DBS and cut a deal... :twisted:
