"Yes, wonderful things."


That quote from Howard Carter, uttered upon discovering King Tut’s tomb and being asked if he could see anything, has always stuck with me. And feels very applicable here, when looking at Darwyn Cooke‘s wondrous cover for THE MURDER OF KING TUT #1, our adaptation of the James Patterson novel. The book weaves back and forth between Tut’s life as a teenage ruler and Howard Carter’s search for his tomb, and Darwyn did a masterful job of encapsulating all of that in a design-y and quite gorgeous first cover. He’ll be doing covers for all five issues. Alexander Irvine is adapting the book, and Christopher Mitten and Ron Randall are splitting art chores on the boojk. They also co-illustrated a variant cover for issue one, which I featured here earlier this month.
