Valiant Entertainment has revealed the variant cover to Harbinger #8 by Jeff Lemire.
From the Press Release
Rendered in ballpoint pen on ruled notebook paper, Lemire’s cover is Valiant’s line-wide variant offering for January 2013, covering the latest issue of the all-new “Renegades” arc by New York Times best-selling author Joshua Dysart and rising star Phil Briones.
“Josh Dysart is one of my favorite people and favorite writers in comics. We’ve wanted to work together for a long time now, but things never seem to line up with both of our busy schedules. When I heard Josh would be a part of the incredible Valiant relaunch with Harbinger, I immediately asked editor Jody LeHeup if I could do a variant. It may not be a full comic, but at least Josh and I have finally done something together,” said Lemire.
“I’m really excited about the high quality books Valiant has been putting out and it’s great to be a part of it in even this small way. I was so thrilled that Jody and the Valiant guys let me go nuts with my lo-fi ballpoint pen idea,” he added. “I had a blast!”
“Jeff routinely conjures some of the most engaging images and stories in comics and I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with him again,” said Associate Editor Jody LeHeup. “This incredible cover is a testament to that fact and to his love for the outstanding work that Joshua Dysart, Khari Evans, Phil Briones and the rest of the Harbinger crew are doing right now.”
Harbinger #8 arrives January 23, 2012.
