Unpublished? Unity panels

Post by sonicdan »

I found this on a dealer's site recently. I just arrived in the mail today.
Unity panel featuring Eternal Warrior, The Geomancer, and Sting.
I flipped through the Unity trades and didn't see it published anywhere.
Looks like it's the part where the Valiant heroes break in to Mothergod's compound
in order to free Solar. I am not sure who the artists were. Looks kind of like
Don Perlin's pencils and maybe Bob Layton on inks. Perhaps Stan Drake inks. Take a look:

There's got to be an interesting story to those.

EDIT: They're the top panels to Rai 7 page 18. But in the comic the left-most art is visible.

EDIT 2: Panels 5 & 6 on the this page are the same as panels 3 & 4 on page 12 of Harbinger 9. Guess the page was made in production from different sources. So what you've picked up might be as much original art as there is for the page. Congrats!

I remember that a member once made the effort to go through all Unity issues and build a version without overlapping panels. An impressive work. Unfortunately his hard disk crashed :cry: Anyone feels like trying again? Could be interesting to identify other possible pages like this.

I have the art to this page. I can't check the published issue right now, and my art is in the new house. I look forward to digging into it.

Awesome! Thanks Guys! Good eye, Magnus. I seen the scene in Harbinger 9 but missed the panels in Rai 7.
Nycjadie, I love those Rai pages and forgot you had them. Thanks for posting the link!

Had also forgot the link. Glad to see it again. Not only lots of beautiful pages, also interesting to study how production was made.
