For the past year my husband, Greg Spalenka, has been working on a retrospective book of his artwork that is being published by Titan. Together with his buddy Jeff they have designed the entire book which was just submitted to the publisher in England this week. They have created two alternate covers and are looking to fans of Greg’s art to help decide which one to use. If you feel inspired please head over to the Spalenka Eye and vote for your favorite: https://spalenkablog.wordpress.com/2014/03/29/vote-for-your-favorite-spalenka-cover/#comments The book will launch at the San Diego Comic Con this summer.
