Last week we saw the cover reveal for JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 featuring Superman and Wonder Woman establishing new boundaries in their...relationship.

DC has released a time-lapse video on their blog showing Jim Lee draw the cover. He makes it look so easy it's enough to make you cry.

Imagine how much that cover will sell for. JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 is on sale this week!

I don't like how skinny Lee draws Wonder Woman. I much prefer how she looks in her solo book.

@cincyducksfan35: I think it's the regular cover. The cover in the solicits is supposed to be the variant now IIRC.

I wonder if the rumors of Jim Lee leaving Justice League are true. I have to stop reading posts on Bleedingcool.

I think it is a beautiful cover. Really neat watching the time lapse, shows a bit of his process which is fascinating.

Amazing!

I want to see it in real time, because there are so many questions after that video.

Did he really just start from scratch after a couple tries?

They probably are. And I'll accept it if the rumors of a Wildcats revival are true.

Oh. ..... man that was awesome. i like how he did that flipbook style drawing or he draws the body on one paper and the head on another and align and copy

That looks like a heck of a lot of work for one piece (regardless of it being a cover).

@ThanosIsMad: There are two rumors on Bleedingcool. One that he's doing Wildcats. The other is he's leaving for a new superman title called Man of Steel written by Scott Snyder.

Both sound cool IMO.

You have to really admire the amount of work good artists put in to their books. It's incredible really.

I'm confused here, i've gone and preordered the variant cover.

So have I ordered the wrong one?

I love watching people draw or paint. Especially when they're really good at it.

Fantastic, shame they did not comment how long this took real time or show all his rough sketches so you get the progression as well as the final piece.

I'm surprised he was able to draw it without his eyes falling out of his head from stupidity.

Wait, so is the Aquaman one the variant or this one? I'm very confused on which one to buy, but i do like the Aquaman one more.

I got an account here just to ask this: am I the only one to notice how incredibly fubar WW's arm is? We can see the back of her elbow, which transitions (somehow) to the inside of her forearm.

Jim Lee is a boss and one of the best artist ever. My local comic shop was selling it for 9.99 on day one.
