Stanley “Artgerm” Lau is no stranger to dishing out astonishing art. His comic book variants are consistently gorgeous; a number of which go for some decent coinage on the speculator market. It appears as though Artgerm has another hit on his hands. Here it is!
Today the artist revealed his variant cover for Catwoman #3 and it’s a beauty. At the time of writing this article, the Internet is already abuzz about the cover. Featuring Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman in a lovely black dress, the detail is nothing short of exquisite. The dress in question was actually designed by artist Joëlle Jones, but after he saw it, Artgerm says he wanted to try his hand at drawing the article of clothing. Below is the piece that Artgerm saw and decided to make into his own.
If you aren’t currently reading the latest Catwoman series or haven’t picked up a Catwoman title before, this is a good place to start. Written and illustrated by Joëlle Jones, the current story arc features the titular antihero doing battle with a shadowy copycat who has made it her mission to frame Catwoman for the killing of a police officer. DC Comics’ Catwoman #3 will be on stands on September 5th.
