Entry 245: Blast From The Past- Part 16

Towards the end of my internship at Wildstorm in 2003 Jim Lee told me he had a friend who needed some illustrations for a novel they were writing and he asked if I wanted to do it. He had no other information about it. As far as I could tell it didn't sound like a comic book job, which was what I wanted to be doing. And the fact that he was offering it to me, the intern, made it seem to me that it wasn't a very desirable job. Also, who was this "friend" writing a novel? I guess I was skeptical of this being a good job and the right step to take in my career. But, it was Jim Lee asking me if I would do it. I said yes perhaps with the hope that it would earn me some points with him and perhaps lead to him getting me some work.

Entry 242: Fan-art for JODELLE

I did this fan-art for Guy Peelaert's The Adventures of Jodelle a while back.
Fantagraphics's recent reprint of this is a really cool book with a lot of bonus material. I highly recommend it.

Entry 241: SAGITTARIUS A* #5

"K-Bot Monsters", "Chiro Chiro", "Linus Rad", "Psytrons"

I gave so little thought to naming the things in this story. Almost all of these names were off the top of my head as I wrote it.

The name Chiro Chiro was supposed to be a reference to Chiruchiru, a robot in the Astro Boy manga, but I wrote it when I didn't have the reference handy. I never went back to change it, I just decided it was fine. Who cares. What's in a name right. Moving on.

I like this page a lot. I like it because it doesn't seem like much happens, and not much does. But as I get deeper into this story, this scene will take on some importance.

Entry 240: SAGITTARIUS A* Chapter 2

"Chapter 2: The Psytron War"

Next month I'll put up the first page of Chapter 2. We've learned about Linus Rad's father, now it's time to learn about Rad's experience in the war.

To catch up on Sag A*, check it out here. Sagittarius A* So far there are only 4 pages. It's an easy read.

In other news: Amnia Cycle got talked about on Robot 6. Check it out here: Amnia on Robot 6 That was really cool of them.

I'm hoping to get the 4th chapter of Amnia going soon. It's been tough finding time to work on it while working on the last issue of S.H.I.E.L.D. and my Edge of Spider-Verse issue.

Juggling these projects is a good problem to have.

Entry 239: MY Spider-Man!

Here is my cover for Spider-Man : Edge Of Spider-Verse #3

This project is a very special one for me because it's a big step towards my goal to be primarily a Writer/Artist. That's right, they are letting me write and draw a Spider-Man comic. It's true that I wrote the Rocksteady and Bebop issue, and I did some art assistance on it, but this will be my first published work as a writer/artist... And it's SPIDER-MAN!... Well, sort of.

Actually, this is a "re-imagining" of Spider-Man. This is a Spider-Man in an alternate, parallel universe. Hints the name "Edge of Spider-Verse". Every issue in this series will be a different Spider-Man or Woman in a different universe. So, for an issue, I get to create my own version of Spider-Man. Which, in my opinion, is so much better than working on the regular Spidey. This way I can really cut loose and get creative.

So what is my version of Spider-Man like? I'll be showing you some concept stuff later. For now I'll say that my story is kind of a sci-fi medical thriller. It also has a bit of sci-fi horror. It is also a Super Hero story. I was thinking a lot about Osamu Tezuka, David Cronenberg, and Stan Lee as I came up with this.

Anyway, I'm in the middle of working on this now... I hope it turns out good.
