You’ve all been reading the hilarious and hirsute Shirtless Bear-Fighter from writers Jody LeHeup (former editor of Uncanny X-Force, Deadpool, Quantum and Woody) and Sebastian Girner (SCALES & SCOUNDRELS), artist Nil Vendrell, colorist Mike Spicer (Head Lopper, Mythic), and letterer, right? Well, if not here’s a quick summary:
After being betrayed by the bears that raised him, the legendary SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER wanders the forest he’s sworn to protect, fist-fighting bears, eating flapjacks, and being the angriest man the world has ever known! When wild-eyed, super-strong bears attack the citizens of Major City, Shirtless ventures into the human world to do what he does best… PUNCH THOSE BEARS IN THE FACE!
Well, just revealed is the cheeky Burt Reynolds inspired variant for the third issue, the ‘Burt Beariant’ cover (Cover D) by Andrew Robinson along with a few others too. Knowing how well you all reacted to the XXX Savage Dragon piece I did a while back, I have no doubt this will hit the mark with many too.
So, without further ado, here it is in (almost) all its (morning) glory.
SHIRTLESS BEAR-FIGHTER! #3 Cover A by Robinson (Diamond Code JUN170800), Cover B by Vella (Diamond Code JUN170801), Cover C by Chabot (Diamond Code JUN170802), and Cover D limited Burt Beariant (Diamond Code JUN178364) will be available in stores on Wednesday, August 23rd. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, July 31st.
