The Legend: Phantom Variant, Part I by Tradd The Legend: Phantom Variant, Part I by Tradd
Alright, guys. This is part ONE of SIX connecting PHANTOM VARIANT covers (a variant for each issue of the series) that will follow Luther through a path of mayhem and bloody ribbon dancing. GET PUMPED.

Each time I post the next cover, I'll also post the connected version on my BLOG so that you can keep up with how the pieces all culminate!

Be sure to contact one of THESE RETAILERS if you'd like to snag a copy!

I don't know why but I like reading this, normally I look at the comic just because of the artwork but the artwork's cool too. :D

Well its good to know I have a solid plea come the court date, thanks man, and I fucking knew it. Also the Bunny probably deserves it most, aint no telling what he's done to get in front of Luther's Warpath.

This pic has Luther punching a dude with dreads but on your blog its a dude with glasses. Why the change?
Reply
:icontradd:
Tradd Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Professional
Ah, good eyes! The version on here (the one with the dreads) is my original and preferred version. However, we decided that we wanted to slip some of the owners of the comic shops who are selling these variants into the actual covers, so I went back and made an edit. The guy with the glasses is Chuck Rosanski, the owner of Mile High Comics in Colorado!
