More Goals & Lets Make a Cover - The Dogs of War

HAHA YOU KEEP GIVING US MONEY. WE SURELY THOUGHT BY NOW YOU WOULD HAVE  SEEN THROUGH THIS CUNNING RUSE. BUT YOU HAVENT. SO NOW WE GIVE YOU MORE GOALS TO RACE TOWARD: 

ALSO THE ARTMONKEY I HIRED TO DRAW THESE COMICS OF MY AMAZING GREATNESS AND ROBO'S INCREDIBLE STUPIDNESS HAS SOME BEHIND THE SCENES STUFF ABOUT THE DOGS OF WAR VOLUME:

FROM THE DESK OF SCOTT WEGENER: 

Dogs of War was a lot of fun to work on. I absolutely adored the Nazi monster men, (which we never actually called "monster men" because it turns out the name was copyrighted), and was jazzed to put one on the cover. 

But when I passed this one in for Team Robo to take a look at the feedback was unanimous -You have to put Sparrow front and center!

So Sparrow and the big ugly dude swapped places. Sparrow is always a lot of fun for me to draw. She's actually a version of a character I was outlining a comic for just prior to Brian and I hooking up to make Atomic Robo.

 Then it was time to go to Anthony Clark for colors. 

 We liked this but I wanted to see more of a sepia-tone for Robo and the background. I really wanted Sparrow to stand apart like they weren't really even sharing the same environment.

 Anthony did this so fast I'm certain he's actually powered by magic. Next up Jeff went about setting more formal trade dress for it. 

 And that's the cover for ATOMIC ROBO: THE DOGS OF WAR

      Incredible work.
      and I agree Sparrow should be prominent.
      I somewhat hope "Ghost of Station X" features A.L.A.N. as some sort of centrally posed puppetmaster.
