The covers for Formic Wars have been amazing. A lot of artists have contributed, most recently Billy Tan, who did the pencils for issues three through seven. They droop my jaw. I wish I could make huge framed posters of them and put them in my living room. But something tells me my wife wouldn’t go for that. They might scare off guests. There is a burning helicopter and melting human flesh, after all.

The hardcover is out, and it looks incredible. This includes all seven issues of the first run of Formic Wars. Giancarlo Caracuzzo has done amazing art for the series. And Jim Charalampidis is a wizard of color and light. Scott Card and I have had a lot of fun developing this. As a life-long fan of Ender’s Game, I’ve always wondered what happened during the first two wars. Formic Wars is the answer.
Also be on the lookout for the first Formic Wars novel, coming Spring 2012. I’m very excited about that one as well. TOR is publishing. Look for more information coming soon.
