Of Angry Robots and Cover Boys

Revealed! From Angry Robot books and illustrator Joey Hifi, I’m very stoked to present the new, grittier, moodier cover for Moxyland: World Domination Edition.

Moxyland will be launching under its new guise in the UK in July and the US and Australia in September.

And if you’d like to check out more work from Joey Hifi (who illustrated this cover and conceptualised and designed the original Moxyland and Maverick covers) go here.

Or get your paws on the latest issue of Wired magazine where he’s a featured contributor.

    This is such an awesome cover. Captures the mood of the book beautifully.

    Thanks, Fiona!

    I'll always have a special place in my heart's wunderkamer for the original Jacana cover.

    Fab vicious funky cover, plugs right into the Brit noir mood and Angry Robot ethos. And we'll always have Moxy ... my kitties still curl up to the Yellow Em on cold nights.

    I love the Jacana cover, but this is also quite something - wow!

    That rocks disconcertingly, Lauren. But my toy Moxy, who is sitting here at my desk next to the picture of Maria Rosa Mystica, disagrees. I also have a cuddly spot for the yellow terror which my little terror loves to bits.

    "rocks disconcertingly" - I'll go with that, thanks Louis.

    In tribute to the old cover and the beloved Moxy, I'm compiling a special little something. If you have pics of Moxy and your pet / your kid (same thing really) or other candid and strange Moxy-related images, please email them to me.

    I will contribute to that album for sure, Lauren... but you're not allowed to use that ghastly pic I sent some time ago. I'll get some posed and primped ones together. Though I'm not sure if there will be time for Moxy to get the wash and groom he so needs.

    Don't worry, Louis, I'm keeping that pic for blackmail purposes one day.

    You're not allowed to blackmail minors. You'll have to save it for his 21st. Date and venue TBC.
