Stanley "Artgerm" Lau has revealed his variant cover for DC Comics' RWBY #4 -- the third of four variants he will provide for the series.
Artgerm's cover, which was posted to the artist's Twitter page, stars none other than the character Blake Belladonna. Blake is seen sporting the outfit she wore from Volume 4 through Volume 6 of Rooster Teeth Animation's RWBY, on which the DC comic book is based. Of course, the faunus huntress is also brandishing her trusty weapon, Gambol Shroud.
Artgerm's first RWBY cover -- which stars series protagonist Ruby Rose -- was just released yesterday, Nov. 13, as the variant cover for the print edition of RWBY #2. His second -- which puts the spotlight on the series' resident ice queen, Weiss Schnee -- was revealed back in September and is slated to go on sale next month as the variant cover for RWBY #3.
With Blake now taking center stage in the RWBY #4 variant, the only character remaining as part of Artgerm's four-cover series is Yang Xiao Long -- who will presumably make her presence felt come RWBY #5.
Written by Marguerite Bennett and illustrated by Meghan Hetrick, RWBY #4 goes on sale in print Jan. 15, 2020 from DC Comics. The complete solicitation information, as well as Sarah Stone's main cover, can be found below.
