As it's from an issue which hasn't technically come out yet.
For those of you who have been reading Kieron Gillen's Iron Man series, you will know that Death's Head has been making some quiet guest appearances. This resulted in the final panel of the last issue, looking a little like this:
Yup. A 30 foot tall Death's Head and Tony Stark in a Gladiatorial Arena, on an alien planet, with a battle about to begin.
You see, back in the summer Iron man played an important part in allowing the Avengers and X-Men to destroy The Phoenix. Well... it had to be done. There was global peril, and... stuff.
Still, not everybody was happy about that. Like The Voldi. An alien race which just happened to worship The Phoenix as their God. They're really not happy about it. And as Tony Stark decided to start going out into space (He is now a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, believe it or not), and had the misfortune to encounter The Voldi, he was arrested and tried for Murder.
His 'get out' was to invoke the rite of "Shay-Tah Run," a trial by combat. Which he thought would put him at an advantage. Until The Voldi chose a certain 30 foot tall time-travelling Bounty Hunter to represent them...
Which leads us to this week's cover...
Which, frankly, is a little work of genius.
And, yes, rabid fanboys. Calm down. It's by Greg Land. And I care not for your complaints of lightbox tracing. This is brilliant. And a brilliant Cover always remains a brilliant Cover, regardless of your other thoughts on an artist.
The current Death's Head mini-resurgence may prove to be little more than a blip in the long term, but I'm loving it while it lasts.
Iron Man #8 is out on the 17th April.
