Book of the Year

This Wednesday, 10/21, Vigilante #11 hits the shelves -- with JP Leon doing finishes over Walter Simonson! Holy smokes!! I haven't been looking forward to a single comic book like this in ages. I saw a little sneak peek recently and I couldn't be more excited -- there's nothing more fun than seeing 2 artists collaborate like that! So, keep your eyes open for this book on Wednesday -- grab a copy before it's gone!

Secret Invasion: New Warriors

Marvel Adventures: Avengers Vol. 9

Spider-Man Amazing Friends

Spider-Girl Vol. 7: Betrayed

Fantastic Four Vol. 1 Hardcover

Fantastic Four: The Life Fantastic

And, you can pre-order Exiles: Point of No Return which is out in December:

Mini MegaCon Schedule

Hey folks,

For those that are coming down to the Mini MegaCon next weekend, August 22-23, I'll be appearing in the special guest area, booth 423. Doors open at 10am on Saturday, and I'll be there signing and doing con sketches. See the previous post to grab your spot!

Saturday at 12:30, I'll be appearing at the Hero Initiative booth doing head shots and busts to raise money for a great charity. Track me down there if that's what you're looking for -- I probably won't be able to do quick sketches like that during the rest of the show.

On Sunday, I'll be doing a panel from 10:50- 11:40 in Room 230 B:

Pen & Ink Panel: The Art of Drawing Comics

This panel is for everyone that ever wanted to learn the basics of comic book illustration brought to you by the top talents in the field. Go behind the scenes and learn the techniques that can not only sharpen your skills, but might one day lead to a successful career in comics.

So there you go! See you soon!

Exiles #3 out now!

I should've made a post last week, but my schedule was all messed up -- my first issue of Exiles is now in stores! My story arc kicks in with the last 4 pages of this issue, so check it out and get onboard! I'm just now finishing up issue #5, and I'm really happy with how the story turned out. The next story arc is set up and I can't wait to get started! More on that later. For now, go get Exiles #3 and let me know what you think!

Avengers Covers, part 2

Marvel has the solicitations up for the second Avengers cover... Click Here for the details.

Both of these are straight from pencils (no inks). It's extra work, but I was happy with the results. Everything held up and the colorist did a good job with it! I'll post the pencils on my Deviant Art site soon.

Back to work!

Avengers Covers

I did a few covers for the Marvel Adventures Avengers book while I was doing the Batroc story, and the first has been solicited for July! Marvel has all the details:

Nate Cosby was my editor on these and that guy is a nut. I LOVE working for him and hope we can hook up again soon. He came up with some great concepts for these, so he gets all the credit. So, look for issue #38 and #39 -- that's me!

Exiles #4 out in July!

Marvel has the details on Exiles #4 up on the site -- here's the link:

Click Here!

The issue is in the can, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Some great stuff from Parker and having Karl Kesel onboard is really awesome. I've gotten into the groove with the characters, so it's nice to jump right into issue #5! I'm loving getting to draw some Marvel Universe characters that I've not drawn before... Jocasta, Ultron, and a ton more. I've drawn Machine Man and Vision before, but that was a long time ago on those Marvel Online comics I did. It's been fun to have some BWS stuff out for inspiration on all this tech -- I think Uncanny 205 might be the best comic ever.

By the way, why did Prismacolor ruin the formula for the H leads when they took over the Turqoise brand from Sanford? I'd like to know. Thank you.

Exiles #1 this Wednesday!

Don't forget to check out Exiles #1 this Wednesday, April 8th! Click here for a preview!

This issue launches the series with an entirely new cast of characters, so it all starts here. Parker did a helluva good job setting the stage for the launch, and the interior artist, Salva Espin, is really freakin' good. Be sure to check that preview to see what I mean!

Also, it's Wolverine month at Marvel, so there's a pretty cool variant for this issue, too! Art by Jason Chan!

Marvel has me busy on a story arc for the new Exiles series, and it starts off in June! The current artist, Salva Espin, will hand-off the pencils to me at the big ending of Exiles #3, so I'm handling the last 4 pages in that issue. Salva is an awesome artist and great guy, so it's been a lot of fun to work with him.

You can click here for the official details on Exiles #3.

I'm not sure what I can say about the story when my arc kicks in, so I'll save that for later. But, I can say that Jeff Parker is writing some great scripts -- with Exiles he's getting to bring in so many cool Marvel Universe concepts and tell a really good story with them. I'm lovin' it. And, I've got Karl Kesel onboard for the inking! I've been a fan of Karl's since forever and he's doing a fantastic job on the pages! More news later!

Secret Invasion New Warriors TPB!

I got a nice surprise from Marvel today -- the Trade Paperback of New Warriors that collects my two issues on the series! I didn't even realize this was out yet. Anyway, you can find it on Amazon here:

Had some great news for the Exiles stuff coming up, so I'll share that soon!

Marvel Adventures Avengers #35 coming soon!

I've been working away on this Avengers book, and it'll be out on April 15th! I'm doing "enhanced pencils" on it, so there's no inks. It's my first time doing this since I've been putting more work into the rendering, so check it out and let me know what you think! Great cover by David Williams, and it's a fun story packed with cool characters. Here's a link:

I've done a few covers for this book that are coming up, so I'll post those soon! Next up is Exiles with my old studiomate Jeff Parker! VERY fun stuff in this book!

New Warriors #20 in February!

You can find more of my work from Marvel on February 11th! It's the final issue of New Warriors, which is issue #20. It's a big double-sized blow-out, so Reilly Brown and I both worked on the pencils (I drew 19 pages, Reilly did 15... if you wanna know). So, please pick it up and let me know what you thought. Thanks!

I'm cranking away on my new Marvel project now, so check back soon....
