Perfect Shadow Cover Art Revealed!

I’m pleased to be able to announce that Raymond Swanland has turned in the final art for the cover and interior illustrations for the Subterranean Press limited editions of Perfect Shadow. Mr. Swanland has a storied career as an artist with the Oddworld video game series, a fantasy artist, comic book illustrator, and has even created work for the Magic: The Gathering card game. You can see more of his work here.

If you haven’t yet bought the limited edition, go here to order your copy now. (Please note that the lettered edition is sold out, but the limited edition is still available as of this posting.)

And a hat tip to Michael at Mad Hatter’s Bookshelf & Book Review for breaking the story!

    Holy Shit! I needs me one of those! Does Subterranean Press ship internationally?

    1. Kevan` says:

      yes they do just ordered 2 copies for myself and my son we both live in the Uk $17 for shipping of first copy + $5 for the second

  2. Sarah C says:

    Woah. That is absolutely fantastic looking. It’s just, woah.

  3. Fuu says:

    Ok I’m not familiar with these limited edition SubPress books…. So the book is bound in leather, but um… there’s this cover?

    Aside from that, great art! Man looks a little evil and old (haha old…) but aaahhhh it looks wonderful!

    1. kevin says:

      yeah i think the art will be on the dust jacket just like a normal hardback

  4. Steven says:

    How the hell do I get one.

  5. Steven says:

    Holy crap! $45 bucks! That’s alittle too much for me to spend on a 96 page book. No thank you.

  6. Tim says:

    Brilliant timing. First thing I wanted to ask on the chat thing (I had work, so I couldn’t) was when cover art for the limited edition would be released. And then when we can expect our books to arrive =P

  7. Matthew Sacksee says:

    Thanks to Raymond Swanland, I sometimes judge books by their cover.

  8. Nick says:

    That. Looks. AWESOME!!!

  9. Jessica says:

    I ordered it and live in Germany, so yes, they deliver internationally.

  10. Cai says:

    Amazing art. Raymond Swanland, I admire that man. Got the Kindle edition of Perfect Shadow and it was a fantastic read. I shall never tire of it.

  11. kevin says:

    awesome cover, wow cant wait to get mine, you should get that guy to do the night angel trilogy cover

  12. Bri says:

    If you decide to make a movie… and not sure that you even want to or anything, but if you do… Durzo Blint could be played by Tom Hiddleston. Just a random thought 🙂

      I think that ODED FEHR from The Mummy movies would be better

  13. Stavros says:

    That’s great! I ordered it 3 months ago for delivery in Cyprus. Any news for when we will get our hands on this???

  14. robert says:

    I second all of what every one has just sai. This is by far the best cover I have ever seen. I just wish that it would get here sooner. I can’t wait till january. 🙂 I wonder what we can expect of the other artwork we would see.

  15. jazz says:

    i do love the cover i have only one problem; the guy needs to be hotter.

  16. Duncan Long says:

    What a gorgeous book cover illustration. Every author should be so lucky as to have a cover artist create a book illustration like this.

  17. Conrad says:

    Definitely Styling with the cover. It is very amazing.
    Any idea on when it hits the shores of Japan?
    Thanks for putting in all the hard work.

  18. Dan says:

    totally worth waiting till december. nice job!

  19. Lauren says:

    I just want my copy now!! Hehe. I also just started The Black Prism last week and I already cannot wait for book two…… Sigh.

  20. Joseph Mondragon says:

    Oh my gosh I totally want this! But $45 :o..Going to have to ask my parents if they can get it for me :D! Hopefully they do..

    1. kevin says:

      last time i checked the website it said they were down to the last 200, hope you get one

      1. Joseph Mondragon says:

        Really?! Great..I don’t think my parents are going to order it for me :o. This totally sucks. And I refuse to buy an e-reader tablet thing too..

        1. Tim says:

          You don’t need the tablet thingummies to read e-books. You can get them in pdfs etc. so they can be read on normal computers. I still don’t go for e-books in general, but yeah. Probably better than not reading it at all, which looks like your other option.

          1. Joseph Mondragon says:

            Yeah I got to figure out how to do that. But I may be able to have my brother and sister order it for me as their Christmas present for me so I’m hopeful! Whatever they do has to happen to quick though..I presume that there aren’t many copies left..

    2. kevin says:

      did you get one? there all sold out now

  21. George Gordon says:

    That looks amazing! Any updates on delivery times or any info along those lines?

  22. beau bernier says:

    Does anyone know when subterranean press is going to ship these I ordered it ages ago

    1. brent says:

      Sorry to hear you haven’t gotten your copy yet! I’d suggest getting in touch with Subterranean Press directly. You can check out their webpage here for their contact information:

    What’s the difference between the limited and the lettered edition?
