Red Kent from Mark Lawrence’s Bad Seed

Last Updated on March 30, 2017

Jason Deem has done it again with his new cover for Grimdark Magazine Issue 1. We were incredibly fortunate to secure a short story from one of the premier authors in the fantasy genre in Issue 1, but then incredibly bummed out when our cover artist for the issue unfortunately had to pull out of their commitment at the 11th hour. Fortunately, our graphic designer came to the rescue with 30 minutes notice and created the original Issue 1 cover.

With time, and a solid relationship built with Jason, we’ve been able to finally address that cover and bring it in to line with the kind of art you’re now used to seeing on our e-zine. Without any further ado, I give you Red Kent from Mark Lawrence’s Bad Seedby Jason Deem.

Adrian Collins runs Grimdark Magazine and loves anything to do with telling darker stories. Doesn't matter the format, or when it was published or produced--just give him a grim story told in a dark world by a morally grey protagonist and this bloke's in his happy place. Add in a barrel aged stout to sip on after a cheeky body surf under the Australian sun, and that's his heaven.
