The first comic series from American Gothic Press, GUNSUITS, will be getting an alternate cover treatment from industry talent Darick Robertson.

The first issue, scripted by Paul Tobin and illustrated by PJ Holden, hits comic shops in June with a main cover by Holden that will ship equally with Robertson’s cover. Both feature the series’ main character, Cassandra “Potts” Potter, and a glimpse of the tentacled enemies she faces. “GUNSUITS allows me to draw characters and creatures that come very naturally to me, which is what makes monster stories so much fun to create in the first place,” Robertson says.

Darick Robertson’s is well known in the comic book world for over the top action and Sci-Fi, having co-created the enduring TRANSMETROPOLITAN (with Warren Ellis), THE BOYS (with Garth Ennis), and HAPPY! (with Grant Morrison). Recently he teamed up with filmmaker Adam Egypt Mortimer for Black Mask Studios’ BALLISTIC.

This is only the first of his forthcoming alternate covers for GUNSUITS. Robertson says, “Working with [Publisher] Phillip Kim has been great. His vision for Famous Monsters as an imprint that will live on as original comic book properties comes from a very sincere love and respect for the magazine and its legacy, as well as his own creative drive.”

Like the previous cover by PJ Holden, Robertson’s GUNSUITS cover will be offered as a promotional poster for interested Retailers.
