ELEPHANTMEN #1 will be charging into stores this July courtesy of Image Comics, and with #2 following right behind in August, what better way to draw more converts than with an Ian Churchill flip cover! That’s right, Active Images has paired Churchill (of Prelude to Infinite Crisis and Supergirl fame) with HIP FLASK and Eisner-nominated artist Ladronn to provide two stunning covers.

Click to enlarge“Can it get any better than this?” asks Richard Starkings, President & First Tiger of Active Images and the writer of ELEPHANTMEN. “Ian [Churchill] and I have been friends for years and as long time fans of HIP FLASK know, Ian has had a hand in the creation of the character since the very beginning. Ian finished this piece for us as a special favor and I couldn't be happier. It's the perfect complement to the interior art by Moritat and Henry Flint -- this will be one beautiful book!”

Check out both covers, from pencils to colors, here:
