Star Trek: Infestation


Retailer incentive. This cover features hand-drawn sketches by Gordon Purcell on the zombie hand cover art by Gabriel Rodriguez. Purcell did 400 covers for this issue; about 200 Kirks, 100 Spocks and 100 McCoys. Some of the Kirks were from the waist up and others were head shots. He only had about 10 days to draw the covers. During that time, he also inked a cover for Star Trek: Infestation #2 and drew four Godzilla incentive covers. A busy artist.
