Seriously, how awesome is this cover art? So as not to spoil anything, I will only confirm that, as the cover indicates, Ant-Man: Game Over is set in a pinball arcade and that when I was working on the book, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAD IN MIND. Illustrators/artists are fantastical wizards who never cease to amaze me.
Generally speaking, with work-for-hire, you’re not supposed to get too attached to your projects, especially when it comes to working with big licensors–too much can change and none of it is in your control. I’m pretty good at maintaining that distance most of the time. BUT, in this case, [redacted] all that noise. I love this cover art and I really can’t wait to see the interior illustrations.
Ant-Man: Game Over is coming to a bookstore near you (or your browser) on October 20, 2015. Around that time I’ll post to tell you all about the awesome Silver Ball Museum, which I visited for “inspiration” last summer.
PSA: Ant-Man, starring probable vampire* Paul Rudd, opens Friday, July 17th.
