Jim Lee has debuted his cover art for Absolute WildC.A.T.s, the upcoming hardcover collected edition from DC Comics.
Lee, co-creator of WildC.A.T.s and co-publisher of DC Entertainment, posted the inked artwork by Scott Williams and the final colors by Alex Sinclair, both frequent collaborators. The glimpse behind the scenes provides a treat for fans of characters such as Grifter, Spartan, Zealot, Voodoo, and the rest of the WildC.A.T.s team.
The compendium will be released in December by DC to commemorate the 25th anniversary of WildC.A.T.s #1, by Lee and Brandon Choi. Published by Image Comics, the issue was Lee's first creator-owned work, and served as the foundation of the Wildstorm Universe. DC acquired Lee's WildStorm Productions in 1998.
