The editors at Valiant asked me to draw a variant cover for ETERNAL WARRIOR. Here is the official solicitation copy:

WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #9 (“LABYRINTH” – PART 3)
Written by ROBERT VENDITTI
Art by RAÚL ALLÉN
Cover A by RAÚL ALLÉN
Cover B by PERE PÉREZ
Cover C by TOMAS GIORELLO
Variant Cover by STEVE LIEBER
Variant Cover by DEAN HASPIEL

“LABYRINTH” delivers the killing blow! The darkest hour of the Eternal Warrior’s long life has arrived with blood and torment. Behind every wall and around every corner of the Dying One’s “LABYRINTH,” new and sadistic ways to burn, tear, and break Gilad Anni Padda await. As the Eternal Warrior’s greatest enemy inches closer to unlocking the secret of never-ending life, is all hope lost for Earth’s immortal soldier? The monumental Eternal Warrior epic of the year delivers another crushing blow as New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti (BOOK OF DEATH) and visionary artist Raúl Allén (Hawkeye) enter the darkest corner of “LABYRINTH” yet!

Here is a sketch I did for another version of the cover:

11:28am: Mental Floss re: The Red Hook
Thanks, Rich Barrett, for giving The Red Hook and New Brooklyn some love at Mental Floss:

"Dean Haspiel is always at the forefront of new comic frontiers. He was an early webcomic creator, having founded the influential ACT-I-VATE website in 2006. He's involved with all types of new ventures, like Archie Comics’ new superhero line and multimedia initiative Trip City. Now, Haspiel is one of the first big-name American comics creators to jump onboard with Korean webcomic juggernaut LINE Webtoon. Much of the U.S. comic-buying public have never heard of LINE Webtoon, but it is a very popular and forward-thinking innovator in the webcomics space. Their comics take advantage of the vertical format of web and mobile browsers to deliver a modern, digital reading experience.

With New Brooklyn, Haspiel introduces a series of interconnected superhero comics that will run exclusively on Webtoons. The first series, The Red Hook, is about a super-thief who is given something called “the omni-fist of altruism” and is transformed into a hero of Brooklyn, one year after the borough (which has somehow become sentient) secedes from the United States.

This is a loony, over-the-top superhero comic full of Brooklyn references and dramatic artwork that brings to mind the bold work of Frank Miller. New episodes of The Red Hook are published every Wednesday, and two new series by some of Haspiel’s friends and collaborators, The Brooklynite and The Purple Heart, will debut later this year."
