The Rift™ #6 All New cover Unveiled!
A year ago Italian-based artist Antonio Bifulco was working with us on a film adaptation when sadly the project's financing partner fell through. We've kept in touch and have since met face-to-face during this year's New York Comic Con. Since Antonio was a solid professional and his artwork was just too good to pass up we decided to give him a shot at final cover to The Rift series! So here it is along with a sneak peek at the entire process from concepts to pencils to the final piece. Enjoy!
