I was planning on checking out the first issue of this. Francavilla cover looks fantastic as usual.

It does look like a Francavilla cover but it's not - it's a David Mack! You should check out the other (variant) covers, too. Link. They all look pretty neat; especially the Darwyn Cooke and Fiona Staples variants for issue #1.
