23.2 × 41 cm (9.13 × 16.14 in.)
Devilishly sexy, Major Jones, trained at General Carrington's school - he's a jet pilot who knows all about combat techniques - has the features of Whitney Houston. She is XIII's close - and very close - guard and pulverizes those who would try to harm him. Her secret wounds bring her closer to the amnesiac she supports in his quest for identity. It is in this kind of illustration that William Vance excels. His advertising training allows him to bring the rendering of materials to an absolute realism like this black dress with ruffles and these leather boots matched with stockings absolutely amazing.
