The Hollywood Reporter has debuted some artwork by comic book writer/artist Mike Mignola showcasing the star of his new series: Joe Golem. The artwork is intended for publication as a variant cover for the first issue of Joe Golem: Occult Detective series, and while the finished version of the artwork will be a collaboration with Mignola’s regular colourist Dave Stewart this image is the kine art just at it left Mignola’s drawing board.
Joe Golem, a pulp detective in an alternate 20th century where parts of Manhattan have been flooded, first appeared in the 2013 prose novel Joe Golem And The Drowning City by Mignola and Christopher Golden. However, Mignola will sadly not be providing the interior art for the forthcoming five-issue comic book series that launches in November. That honour goes to Patric Reynolds with Stewart providing the colours.
