Dash Bradley Pin-Up

Here is a new piece I did for my friend and fellow comic book creator Paul Milligan. Paul foolishly agreed to do a swap for a Spookytown pin-up. Who's the winner here? Me, of course. This is of Paul's character Dash Bradley. Who is Dash Bradley, you ask? Well, as his Facebook page explains....

Dash Bradley is the world-reknowned author of the Race Radford series of adventure novels. Unbeknowst to the public at large the true inspiration for Race Radford's unbelievable fictional adventures is the author himself, who has worked as a special agent for the U.S. Government since 1928. Since that time he has traveled to the four corners of the earth and beyond, battling Nazis, Communists, Martians and book editors to keep the U.S.A. safe and sound.

I did this one in black and white using markers to give it an old movie serial feel. And I left the background uncolored to help the figures stand out more. I really like how this on turned out. I don't think the scan does it justice. As always, I hope you dig it.

New Comic Work in Stores

As I previously mentioned, I contributed a page to David Hopkins' anthology comic book "On Night Stand" and tomorrow it arrives in stores. I received my comp copies in the mail the other and the book looks great. There are lot of cool artists in this book, doing some really interesting and different stuff. My story is called "Come Hither", written by David, as are all the stories in the book.

Go here and scroll down to find a store in your area.

Christmas Goodies

I got a lot of cool gifts for Christmas this year, here are some of them. I think I've got a lot of great reading ahead of me. Really looking forward to Darwyn Cooke's Parker book, wrapping up Bone and starting Scott Pilgrim. Also The Clash book looks most excellent. And Hellboy books are always good. Hope everyone had a great Holiday and has a great new year. Thanks to everyone and anyone who stopped by here in 2009. I hope to see you back again in 2010 and I hope that I can keep it interesting here.

Pin-up in Dead@17 Afterbirth TPB

My pin-up for Josh Howard's Dead@17 "Afterbirth" TPB came out today. The Image Comics book collects issues #1-4 for the "Afterbirth" storyline. Here's a synopsis from the Image site...

In the latest chapter of the DEAD@17 saga, Nara and Hazy face their darkest hour. The insidious Abraham Pitch has returned and plots to open the Abyss, while Nara's crusade against the Marked has disastrous consequences for those closest to her.

This pin-up was lot of fun to do and I'm really happy with how it turned out in print. The colors look really great. Not that you can tell for the terrible quality photo I snapped of it. Anyway, go pick a copy of the book, Josh is putting some good stuff out there. Also, I usually play my cards close to the chest, but I should have some more Dead@17 news to announce later. So stay tuned to see what it might be. Have fun out there.
