If you are looking for an artist to make the epic seem even more so, you go to superstar artist Ron Lim. In his decades-spanning career, he has tackled a cornucopia of comic characters, but he’s perhaps best known on his linework in bringing Marvel Comics‘ cosmic characters to life. From his work on The Infinity Gauntlet, Silver Surfer, Warlock: Rebirth, and so many more books, Lim‘s art makes the grand even grander. It’s no surprise, then, that the House of Ideas would look to Lim to contribute variant covers to the current cosmic series G.O.D.S. from the talents of Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti. And just today, Marvel debuted their latest Lim-rendered G.O.D.S. variant cover for issue #4, this time featuring Schiti‘s take on the mysterious cosmic force that is The Living Tribunal!
For issues #3 through 8 of G.O.D.S., Lim will provide variant covers for not only The Living Tribunal, but also the mighty Marvel powerhouses Oblivion, Master Chaos, Lord Order, Infinity, and Eternity.
Check out G.O.D.S. #4‘s variant cover by Ron Lim featuring The Living Tribunal, as well as the press release Marvel dropped with all the details! The comic goes on sale Wednesday, January 24, 2024, from Marvel Comics.
From the official press release:
At the core of the Marvel Universe, there exists a pantheon of omnipotent forces that shape the very building blocks of reality! Many of these strange beings have been around since the earliest days of Marvel Comics, and are now being transformed before reader’s eyes in Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti’s revolutionary G.O.D.S. series which will delve into their nature and motives like never before. And who better to spotlight their new designs than one of the pioneer architects of the Marvel cosmos—artist Ron Lim! Known for his galaxy shaping work on Silver Surfer and the Infinity sagas, Lim will depict Schiti’s new designs for Marvel’s cosmic entities in six COSMIC HOMAGE VARIANT COVERS.
Gracing the covers of G.O.D.S. #3-8, see Lim take on Schiti’s modern looks for Oblivion, Living Tribunal, Master Chaos, Lord Order, Infinity, and Eternity in homages to his iconic covers for the Cosmic Powers series, the 1994 series where he and Ron Marz spun revelatory tales starring cosmic powerhouses like Thanos, Terrax, and more.
“It’s so cool revisiting these covers after all these years,” Lim shared. “I remember how much fun I had working on them. Valerio Schiti’s new character designs are fantastic and it’s a blast drawing them on these homage covers!”
Lim’s latest COSMIC HOMAGE VARIANT COVER for next month’s G.O.D.S. 4 showcases the new design for THE LIVING TRIBUNAL. Check it out now and preorder it at your local comic shop today! For more information, visit Marvel.com.
