The Goblins Release the Cover for Issue 8on October 30, 2012 at 11:16 pm
It’s always a wild party night in the goblin offices when we get to release the cover for the next issue of Midnight Echo, and this time is no different. There are body parts flying and goblins a cheerin’. So without further ado, here it is…
The stunning artwork is by the amazing Chris Mars, who also kindly donated three signed posters and a signed hardback copy of his book Tolerance, which features colour photos of all of his artwork, for our subscription drive.
