13 COVERS: The Mystery of THE QUESTION

Cowan and Sienkiewicz make their mark…

Dunno if you’ve heard but come November, DC will be releasing a new Black Label miniseries — The Question: The Deaths of Vic Sage, written by Jeff Lemire.

Lemire’s one of the best in the biz, so that’d be cool enough. But what really seals it is that the art will be by Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz, who of course were involved in The Question’s cult-fave ’80s/’90s series written by Denny O’Neil. (Cowan was the primary artist and he and Sienkiewicz joined forces on a substantial chunk of the run’s covers.)

Here’s DC’s description of the four-issue, bimonthly series: “Lemire, Cowan and Sienkiewicz launch a philosophical mystery starring Vic Sage — the Question. Building on the legacy of Dennis O’Neil and Cowan’s previous run, it begins in an early Hub City where an unsolved mystery has led to the demise of the Question — and history will soon repeat itself. Beginning in the Old West and continuing through the lawless 1930s, the answers needed to solve the problem are out of reach — and may doom the Question once again. The faceless man who believes in absolutes will soon find himself in a world where it all blends together, and escaping this trap is the only way to set himself free.”

Got that? Good.

But that’s months away. Until then, here are 13 COVERS by Cowan and Sienkiewicz from the original run.

Striking.
