SAMURAI JACK ISSUE FIVE COVER...

The road to the final cover was sort of different, from start to finish. Sort of. Still the same general layout--only my pallet changed quite a bit. I wanted to highlight the end of the "THREADS OF TIME" storyline finale, thinking the golden hues showcased that--but ultimately didn't feel it lent itself to the gravitas of the Aku showdown in this issue, hence the much darker tone in the final version of the cover to #5.

Bought it! Not gonna lie, the first version cover looks amazing too! Would have been a nice variant.
