Picked up the new Springer voyager figure yesterday, and considering how much it resembles the comic and I have all the figures necessary for this I had no choice but to recreate this scene from Last Stand of the Wreckers.
IDW Limited Last Stand of the Wreckers Black Label Art
The interesting thing about this edition is, for the Blue Label we had Guido Guidi and Nick Roche team up to draw the two-character sketches. So each guy drew one of the two characters on the sketch plate. These pieces turned out so good that we actually scanned them, then had a colorist go in and color the scans so that we could put that finished product into a hardcover portfolio to go along with the book.
The book comes in three varieties. Red Label is $125, Black Label is $250, and the final Blue Label edition is $350. Each edition comes with exclusive art prints by Guido Guidi and Nick Roche with originals being included in the Blue release. The title should be available to order on 9th April. Writer James Roberts assures us that “it is a thing of beauty”.
I guess that Last Stand of the Wreckers must have been, like, the greatest comic of all time. Why else would I have done all this fan stuff in support of it? No comic before or since has prompted such out of me.
I don’t know how much truth there is to it, but I’d been told that Nick Roche actually wanted to include some of this as extras in the LSotW hardback but couldn’t because, y’know, unsolicited and stuff.
The Jumpstarters are a 50/50 collaboration with my bro.
