Darkseid – Master of Death No. 1 Cover by Jim Lee

As an artist, Jim Lee has made a career on good draughtsmanship backed up with superior rendering skills. Recently, he did this Darkseid piece via live feed and I loved its looseness and strength. By not getting in there to sweat the details there’s a freshness and power to this piece which is a welcome departure from the usual.

And it begged to be a cover.
