Hysteria Vol. 0, Ch. 1 cover WIP

Got a chance to spend a little time working on this cover. I want to stick with a two color palette, in this case black and orange. Far from done, of course. The text is just a holder for now, and the space up top is for the title. Just thought I'd share where I'm at so far.

Oh, and I spelled "volume" incorrectly. Sorry, it's been a long week...

Sweet Science, Hysteria Vol. 1 Ch. 1 wrap up

Hey all,

Been hard at work on Un-men #7 as well as other side projects. During my signing tour to Philly and NY I was able to work on the Sweet Science while on the train. Here's some more works in progress. If all goes well, I may be done with this print series by Early Dec.

Also, the first chapter of Hysteria Vol. 0 has wrapped up online. Been working on a "cover" for the chapter, for something cool I have planned for the series. Here's the pencils for that.

Read the Hysteria webcomic here

More soon!
