Here's my variant cover for #1 of The Royals: Masters of War by Rob Williams and beautifully illustrated on the inside by Simon Coleby. 


  1. very nice - lovely shading as always Brian.
    Variant - an alternative cover to get people to buy the same comic twice or give the reader a varied choice of covers to buy.
    Depends on your point of view and how limited the variant cover is as to whether the idea is a good one or not.

  2. Of course I know what a variant cover is. I was just being coy!

  3. Hey Brian - I sent you a pm the other week - any chance of a quick reply at all please?

  4. Hi, Mr.Bolland. First of all, I would like to say that I love your work. You , Adam Hughes and James Jean are my favorites comic books artists.

    I don't know if you have seen a book called "Fables Covers by James Jean". It collects most of the covers made by James Jean in the series Fables. It's really good.

    I don't know if you agree with me, but I keep imagining, how great would that be if DC Comics makes a similar book with your "Jack of Fables" covers and Adam Hughes "Fairest" covers?

    Do you know if DC Comics plans to do that?

    Farewell and thanks to share a space in your blog to talk to your fans. It is really nice from your part.
