  1. The one of Dave Palumbo is amazing, but it’s not a comic, it’s a cover. I don’t get why is there. Anyway, stunning artwork all over

    1. Alex, The David Palumbo artwork was commissioned by Dark Horse for use as a cover for a comic book. Comic covers and interior pages are both welcomed as submissions in the Comic category. –John
