The U.S.-based comic book publisher ABLAZE will be releasing the first issue of SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK on June 9. It will be written by the iconic Harlock creator himself, Leiji Matsumoto, but the job of illustrating will go to Jerome Alquié.
The second issue will come out July 7, with pre-orders becoming available on April 23. And issue 2 is getting five variant covers, which ABLAZE has shared with us. Jerome Alquié illustrated one of the variants, and the other artists behind them are Mirka Andolfo, Junggeun Yoon, Andie Tong, and Philippe Briones.
What do you think of the variant covers?
