Marvel has announced artist Carlos Pacheco is coming back to the company, and his first bit of work is a “parent” variant cover to the upcoming Secret Warriors #1.

Pacheco’s cover features the chill-inducing lineup of Mr. Hyde, the Phantom Rider and Griffin. The two super villains and one ghostly “hero” represent the parental pedigree of Secret Warriors Quake, Hellfire and Yo-Yo, and the cult status of the characters proved the perfect assignment to bring Pacheco back to the Marvel U.

This is the first work for Marvel by Pacheco in five years.  Secret Warriors #1 arrives February 4, 2009.

    You know, I’d forgotten that Daisy Whatserface was the daughter of Mister Hyde. Eh, I like Griffin better. The art of him by Leinil Yu in NEW AVENGERS was fantastic – and here, again, he looks like a real animal.

    Also, dig the skeleton horse! Literally, that is. Also, wire him together because his joints aren’t supposed to go together like that without tendons and…

    Oh yeah, comic book. Ghost horse. *slaps forehead*. My bad.
