With this cover I just wanted to paint all the characters together for the first time, and convey a more superpowered vibe with the glowing hands and so on, without losing the sensibility that links the previous issues together. On the other covers the characters look like ordinary people, albeit with the kind of magnetism that looks as at home on the cover of a music or film magazines, which was kind of the point. I took my inspiration from the newsracks, not comics.
Death Sentence 6 is also fairly unique among the comics on the shelves in that it gives you a clear view on the point of life, which isn't bad for 3 bucks.
You can order it from any comic shop right now, like this one in the UK, or this one in the US - or from comixology on 13th March 2014.
