Raus! Untoten! – Volume 2 cover reveal

Raus! Untoten! Volume 2 cover.

Raus! Untoten! Volume 2 cover.

To say that I’m over the moon about the cover for Raus! Untoten! 2 is a classic British understatement. I’ve had this sitting on my mac for a couple of days and have taken the odd peek. Every time that I’ve looked at it, I’ve loved it. This is based on an old World War Two poster that – even without the undead features – was sufficiently spooky and unsettling for me to immediately think “I want that!”.

The artist, Jason Zerillo, has taken my brief and re-imagined the image perfectly. I can’t wait to see what this looks like with titles etc on it. If you like the image, PLEASE like the page so that you can be kept up-to-date with when book two launches!

  2. Definitely evocative of the old WW2 posters. Maybe all of the covers should be that, twisted versions of classic posters?

  3. Love the cover – all the more striking for its dark, bare understatement! Am I right in thinking the publishing schedule for the Raus Untoten volumes has been revised, with more volumes planned? Maybe you can e-mail me with details about what’s happening
