Stanley "Artgerm" Lau has been enlisted to draw four variant covers for DC's upcoming comic book adaptation of Rooster Teeth's RWBY. The prominent cover artist has now revealed the first of these covers, which features series protagonist Ruby Rose and will serve as the variant for November's RWBY #2.
Artgerm shared the variant in a post to Twitter. Additionally, the artist implies each of his four variants will be dedicated to one of RWBY's four leading characters, revealing that his next cover (presumably for RWBY #3) will see Weiss Schnee taking center stage. Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long will likely follow suit with Artgerm covers of their own.
Written by Marguerite Bennett and illustrated by Mirka Andolfo, with a main cover by Sarah Stone and card stock variant by Jim Lee, RWBY #1 goes on sale Oct. 9 from DC Comics. RWBY #2 follows suit on Nov. 13, with a variant cover by Stanley "Artgerm" Lau.
The complete solicitation information for the latter, as well as Sarah Stone's main cover, can be found below.
