- Notes -
Here we have the first reveal of the cover to issue #3 of Operation 3-Ring Bound! Keeping many of the themes going from the covers of issues 1 & 2, we have, hopefully, a fair representation of all the major aspects in issue 3. We decided to focus on the Eben07/NinjaDan split, emphasizing the literal opposite directions they travel in that issue. We hope you enjoy it! When the actual cover gets its text, you may be surprised that it looks a bit different than previous Eben07 covers. We’re getting rid of the operation name as the title of the book and replacing it with the Eben07 text logo in order to establish a better shelf continuity. It should finally help make Eben07 to look like a bona fide comic book.
You may notice that in the bottom right hand corner D. Bethel wrote “apologies to Jim Lee” because this cover is openly inspired by Jim Lee’s cover to X-Men issue #7 from 1992:
We expect this issue to be available for order in early October, just in time for APE. So, keep your eyes out and stay tuned for the exciting conclusion in issue #4!
