Action Comics!

Hey everyone,

So, if you saw my last post, you know the news. I'm drawing an issue of Action Comics for DC's upcoming Villains event! We're focusing on Cyborg Superman, with some cool twists to his back story.

I'm working with writer Supergirl writer Michael Alan Nelson and the the script is fantastic. There is a tremendous amount of drama and pathos in this issue, and plenty of action.

You can ask your local comic shop to pre-order the issue now, which I believe will be in stores the first week or September.

Enjoy some sneak peeks :-)


PS -  For those wondering, this is not affecting my work on Deadpool. In fact, I handed in issue 21 of Deadpool before starting on Action Comics. Also, Declan Shalvey is drawing the current arc (which you should check out!) So no worries.

Love the facial structure. You really dive into doing model sheets for all your projects, don't you?

Thanks! Yeah, I do get into them. Especially for something this complicated. I think most any project, be it a comic or a film, is a concept art job first. I never know in advance how I'll draw a character, the way some comic artists seem to be able to do. I have to figure it out as I go.

None of this stuff is for publication, and were all developmental pieces.

Thanks again!
