Illustration #1 for Maverick-1 Illustrated Edition: ‘Jack Wilgress, CGC SpecForces’

Brian Hickey, the artist for this series of novellas gives us the following insight: “Wherever possible I try to give the images a “Western” feel, so that they marry up with the author’s vision for the novella. This particular image is loosely based on a promo image for Rio Bravo featuring John Wayne, where he has his rifle slung over his shoulder.

Because this image focuses on Wilgress before he becomes a renowned pirate and leader of the Knaves, I also wanted  to give a visual nod to the character’s future, hence the ghost like Maverick’s logo hovering above Jack’s head – and the view is looking up towards the stars, where his destiny lies.”
