Chase Variant is a new oneshot comic book written by Rich Johnston, author of Lying In The Gutters, Bleeding Cool and Doctor Who: Room With A Deja View featuring the drop-dead gorgeous artwork of Saverio Tenuta and Bagwell. See for yourself…

It’s a balls-to-the-walls action adventure featuring an armed-to-the-teeth multilimbed assassin being hunted down for her genetic assets. While simultaneously her world is formed and shaped by a card game played by unseen assailants. It’s a dark comedy drama that mixed Michael Bay and Rene Descartes, Tomb Raider and Annie Hall, to create a remarkable comic book with some new tricks up its sleeve. Chase Variant.

Rich Johnston, based in London. is known in the comics industry for Bleeding Cool, his comic news, views and gossip blog. But last year he made his mark with two comics of his own, Watchmensch, a Watchmen parody that exposed the rotten history of comics, and Doctor Who: A Room With A Deja View in which he created new comics storytelling devices to tell a very different sci-fi story. With Chase Variant he again find a new way to tell comic stories which exploiting the excessives of the old ways.

Saverio Tenata is best known for his work for Heavy Metal. Living in South America, his painted comic book work is energetic and detailed. While Bagwell, currently living in Korea uses digital methods to create equisite painted artwork from the ether for 2000AD. This is both their first work for Image Comics. And neither Rich, Saverio or Bagwell have ever met.

And Rob Liefeld, founder of Image Comics, and possibly one of the most successful comic book artists in the world, has drawn the 1:10 chase variant cover...
