This March, Jim McCann and Janet Lee's "Lost Vegas" #1 hits stores from Image Comics, and CBR has an exclusive first look at the debut issue's variant cover by Francesco Francavilla. The miniseries reunites the Eisner-winning "Return of the Dapper Men" creative team, and centers around Roland, a gambler-turned-slave, who has 24 hours to pull off the greatest heist the universe has ever seen.

"Roland’s always been this sort of 'What if Paul Newman’s character in 'The Hustler' ignored Fats Domino and snuck around, pressing his luck' with the ego I imagine Han Solo had in his early days -- the 'No way can I get caught' mentality," McCann told Robot 6 in January. "The rest of the cast evolved as I started to build the story and, as it happens with Janet and me, I started seeing her designs and realized this was no heist Roland could pull off by himself. Especially when you have a 10-foot stag and an alien made basically of sentient ink."

Check out Francavilla's variant cover below.
