I'm trying to put together a complete collection of black and white ink art posts of every pre-UNITY Valiant comic. So far I've got X-O Manowar #1, X-O Manowar #2, X-O Manowar #4 and Harbinger #6. Here is another post (sort of) in that series. This time it's the cover art for a UNITY book - Rai #6 by Frank Miller. Now what's interesting about the UNITY covers is they were all done by only 3 different artists (Barry Windsor-Smith, Frank Miller and Walt Simonson) and none of them were ever sold until now. This cover is the first (that I know of) to reach the collector market and therefore the first to be scanned in all its black and white glory.
