Radical Publishing wanted to do something special for the covers of the third issues of Hercules and Caliber that hit stores in July. After a search, the company has announced British artist John Bolton will do a variant cover for Hercules: the Thracian War, with director/writer/artist Tomm Coker doing the cover for Caliber: First Canon of Justice.

“Getting John Bolton and Tomm Coker respectively for Hercules and Caliber couldn’t have been a better choice.” stated Barry Levine, Radical Publishing’s President and Publisher. “John knows a thing about a character such as Hercules, having done Robert E. Howard’s Kull the Barbarian for Marvel years ago, as well as his Marada, the She-Wolf he co-created with Chris Claremont. I really love how he brings across the glory of battle in this one scene. Tomm’s cover for Caliber is just beautiful. With Arthur on the run in the Telacoma winter countryside for issue #3, this cover brings an iconic look to Lance that fits Sam Sarkar’s story.”

Take the jump for a peek at the two covers and solicitation information.

Hercules: The Thracian Wars #3 (DCD# MAY084083) is featured in May 2008 Diamond Previews catalogue and will ship in July of this year.
