Dave Gibbons has drawn a variant cover for the upcoming Venom #11 that is a not-so-subtle homage to his Watchmen #1 cover from DC Comics.

The cover was revealed by Marvel CCO Joe Quesada earlier on Tuesday.

"From the Master Dave Gibbons," Quesada elaborated. "Hey [Donny Cates] and [Ryan Stegman] this cover is better than Venom!"

Back in October, Quesada tweeted about an an unspecified "all-time favorite artist" imminently doing a cover. This would appear to be that.

"This afternoon I received word from one of my all-time favorite artist that he had time in his insanely busy schedule to do a special cover for us," Quesada tweeted previously. "I'm saying this right here, right now, sight unseen, it will be the greatest cover ever! And no I will not give you any hints."

Venom #11 has not yet been solicited, but with #10 due out in January #11 is estimated for a February 2019 release.
