Athena Voltaire

I've been a fan of Steve Bryant's high adventure comic Athena Voltaire, so as you can imagine, I was delighted when Steve asked me to provide a variant cover for an issue in the next arc. He was kind enough to give me carte blanche to draw whatever I saw fit.

I decided to steer away from the usual 1930's adventure tropes of Nazis, instead choosing something more like my favorite pop-culture icon of the period--Universal Monsters.

So here is Athena Voltaire lost in an Egyptian tomb somewhere, unaware that danger is creeping up behind her. There's also a treasure trove of 'easter eggs' (including a nod to another Universal Monster)in the pic too, if you can be bothered to look closely.
