SDCC ’11 | Ben Templesmith’s art for The Darkest Hour

by  in Comic News Comment

Even as Summit Entertainment was touting the Timur Bekmambetov-produced The Darkest Hour this afternoon in Hall H, io9.com was unveiling Ben Templesmith’s cover for a comic/art book inspired by the alien-invasion film.

Set to be released later this year by Oni Press, the book features art from 13 creators — Brian Churilla, Tom Fowler, Nathan Fox, Jeremy Haun and Brian Hurtt among them — who were inspired by the action-thriller, which follows five young people stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack.

A limited-edition poster of the cover is available at Templesmith’s booth (#4500) at Comic-Con International. See the full image after the break. The Darkest Hour, which stars Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Joel Kinnaman and Max Minghella, opens on Dec. 23.
