Watch Jim Lee Draw the Cover for JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 with Superman and Wonder Woman

Posted by G-Man (32198 posts) - - Show Bio

Last week we saw the cover reveal for JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 featuring Superman and Wonder Woman establishing new boundaries in their...relationship.

DC has released a time-lapse video on their blog showing Jim Lee draw the cover. He makes it look so easy it's enough to make you cry.

Imagine how much that cover will sell for. JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 is on sale this week!

how much will this variant go for in shops? is it a 1:10, 1:25, 1:100?

I don't like how skinny Lee draws Wonder Woman. I much prefer how she looks in her solo book.

@cincyducksfan35:

ir's going for 3.39 at midtowncomics,com, which i guess means it'll be 3.99 at your LCS

@cincyducksfan35: I think it's the regular cover. The cover in the solicits is supposed to be the variant now IIRC.

I still don't like it but damn Lee put a lot of work into that awesome cover.

I wonder if the rumors of Jim Lee leaving Justice League are true. I have to stop reading posts on Bleedingcool.

I think it is a beautiful cover. Really neat watching the time lapse, shows a bit of his process which is fascinating.

Amazing!

I want to see it in real time, because there are so many questions after that video.

Did he really just start from scratch after a couple tries?

#13 Posted by wildcardcomics (44 posts) - - Show Bio

Dude...how many times did he draw that?

#14 Posted by Mbecks14 (2068 posts) - - Show Bio

If only it was Lois...

They probably are. And I'll accept it if the rumors of a Wildcats revival are true.

Oh. ..... man that was awesome. i like how he did that flipbook style drawing or he draws the body on one paper and the head on another and align and copy

#17 Posted by RedQueen (1171 posts) - - Show Bio

That looks like a heck of a lot of work for one piece (regardless of it being a cover).

#18 Posted by cc1738 (358 posts) - - Show Bio

@ThanosIsMad: There are two rumors on Bleedingcool. One that he's doing Wildcats. The other is he's leaving for a new superman title called Man of Steel written by Scott Snyder.

Both sound cool IMO.

You have to really admire the amount of work good artists put in to their books. It's incredible really.

#20 Posted by Queso6p4 (1436 posts) - - Show Bio

Very nice to see.

#21 Posted by Smurfboy (480 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome. It looks like he put a lot of time on this art. Pretty cool.

#22 Posted by AltyAce (43 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm confused here, i've gone and preordered the variant cover.

So have I ordered the wrong one?

#23 Posted by MB25 (335 posts) - - Show Bio

AWSOME!! Definitly needs a real time version!

#24 Posted by CitizenJP (596 posts) - - Show Bio

Uuuhhh that was EPIC!

#25 Posted by Fudgie29 (70 posts) - - Show Bio

#27 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

He makes it look way too easy. Amazing ::shakes head in true awe::

I love watching people draw or paint. Especially when they're really good at it.

#29 Posted by Zenistar (26 posts) - - Show Bio

Fantastic, shame they did not comment how long this took real time or show all his rough sketches so you get the progression as well as the final piece.

#30 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm surprised he was able to draw it without his eyes falling out of his head from stupidity. 

#31 Posted by htb106 (1641 posts) - - Show Bio

And you all tried to tell me the Speed Force wasn't real!

@FadeToBlackBolt: are you on drugs?

@lifeboy: Because I don't think Geoffcon Johns' Justice League is a masterwork of storytelling? No, I'm not on drugs.
#34 Posted by TurianAgent (60 posts) - - Show Bio

Wait, so is the Aquaman one the variant or this one? I'm very confused on which one to buy, but i do like the Aquaman one more.

I got an account here just to ask this: am I the only one to notice how incredibly fubar WW's arm is? We can see the back of her elbow, which transitions (somehow) to the inside of her forearm.

Jim Lee is a boss and one of the best artist ever. My local comic shop was selling it for 9.99 on day one.
