Marvel has announced my jumping in as tag-team artist on Deadpool with my good friend Tony Moore. They announced it with style! Just look at the above teaser image from Arthur Adams! Seriously, I remember reading Mr. Adam's comics as a kid and WISHING I could draw like him, so having him do covers for this is just tickling me silly.
Anyway, I can't show any pages just yet but I can shared some pages from my sketchbook. As you can imagine, a lot of sketching and figuring out goes into beginning any new project - and Deadpool was no exception. Here are a few pages of sketches that went into figuring out my approach to the character.
I'm having a silly amount of fun on this series! Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn have been a great team to work with. They are writing the hell out of this series and, along with our editor Jordan White, are trusting me to do my thing. Which I love.
Check out the announcements here and here.
Thanks for all the support everyone, and I hope you enjoy the book...
..."hope" nothin', I KNOW you're gonna love the book ;-)
PS - The series is not going to affect my French books and the college class I'm teaching. The schedules are congruent, and all is good. So, no worries.
PSS - It seems that no sooner did the story hit the media that people started voicing concerns over my not having produced any art for the teaser. This is not because I haven't produced any art. In fact I've already handed in a couple of full issues.
So, again, no worries. I got this ;-)
