Fresh off announcing a new deal with Peach Momoko for a slew of variant covers, BOOM! Studios announces a similar deal with Miguel Mercado. The artist will illustrated twenty covers over through 2021. The next ones from this deal will be on August’s Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 and Seven Secrets #1. Mercado’s work will be featured on variants for subsequent issues of both series.
I had always wanted to draw comic book covers and that dream was realized after being offered to paint a cover for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series. It’s still such a surreal feeling for me seeing my work published and on the stands. I’m still pinching myself to this day.
Additionally, Mercado will illustrate variant covers for Dune House: Atreides #1 in October and the main cover to the Firefly: Watch How I Soar original graphic novel in November.
Matt Gagnon, Editor in Chief, BOOM! Studios added:
Miguel has been thrilling fans with his stunning covers on our Power Rangers and Buffy comics and he’s doing it yet again with his work on Mega Man, Firefly and Dune. Miguel is one of our favorite artists and he’ll be bringing his dynamic style to some of our biggest series over the next year. We’re honored to expand our collaboration with such an incredible illustrator.
