Jobar cover 8 by seangordonmurphy Jobar cover 8 by seangordonmurphy
The final cover for Joe the Barbarian #8. This is my favorite of the series. Dave Stewart did a great job and all without any notes.

It's been announced that the book will be collected as a deluxe trade--which I think means it'll be printed out larger than the trade.

I'm going to fight hard to make this the cover of the trade, but we'll see.

If this were made into an animated series, this would be the flagship image. And I submit that exclamation with adamant awe. You really are the tops, Sean.

so nice. dave stewart kicked ass on colors and you kicked ass on design/illustration. you've come a LONG way since SCAD. i remember seeing a blade runner comic page you did in the halls when I was there. your growth has been inspiring.

while you are fighting hard to get this as the cover of the trade can you also be fighting hard for then to change the "Joe the Barbarian" logo design? It is really terrible...

I hear you. I did a page of designs for the logo--all 80s retro looking with stone letters--but it got rejected.

yeah, not to be dick riding, but your work deserves much better. I can't imagine a placement of the current logo design that won't take away from your composition.

great cover man, Dave's subtle texturing is a perfect fit for your graphic approach. And as my local comic store is run by numpties who have no idea what they're doing, a trade hard/paper back is the only way I'll be able to see this stuff in print (thank God for amazon)

Oh, and yeah this would be awesome as the cover for the trade =D

I hadnt known about the series until after seeing a cover in ur gallery this weekend. I picked up the entire series today after glancing the first issue! Great work! Your storytelling is captivating because there is so much information on every page. Cant wait for the next ish!

If this isn't the cover to the trade there is no justice in this world...no justice.
but the cover with Joe on the horse & the samurai theme was kick-ass too
