Co-Publisher and Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Jim Lee has released his variant cover for an upcoming issue of Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack's Cover, and it's unlike anything the famed artist has released before.
Lee shared the image on Twitter, which is a self-portrait. In his caption alongside the variant cover, he wrote, "My variant cover to COVER #6 written by [Bendis] w/gorgeous art by [Mack]. The variant cover theme has been everyone drawing themselves as a spy as the book is @ the maybe semi-true story of the espionage that sometimes happens in the comics biz 😎 #Jinxworld"

Lee is famous for his work on such comics as Batman: Hush, Uncanny X-Men and, of course, X-Men, in which he helped pioneer the look for the team that for many is what they still think of when they imagine the team. His style was later used for X-Men: The Animated Series, and several of the characters he helped co-create remain to this day. Along with Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Rob Liefeld, Lee is one of the founders of Image Comics.
Cover #6 hits shelves on February 20.
