So the cat is out of the bag, the King city collection comes out from Image comics on February 22nd in black and white 424 pages same golden age size as the Image issues. for $19.99. Here’s the cover.
There’s a couple new drawings but for the most part I kept it pretty close to what was in the issues. It’s still got all the back ups, covers, games and puzzles that were in those.
I’m a big advocate of the fun of getting a book in issues as it comes out and I didn’t want the people who had picked it up month to month to feel like they should have waited.
My pal Robin has relaunched the site selling pages from me, Marian, Stokoe and Marley. We’re doing a contest to give away this drawing:
It’s a contest to come up with the best brunch this universe has ever seen. no pressure. More on it here:
Last night was the deadline to get something off for the Previews cover of Prophet #23 (3rd one of my run) and I’d forgotten that my pal Farel (dalrymple)who I was going to get to draw it was kicked back on a beach far far away. Luckily when Farel came up here a couple weeks back he left an impressive Prophet drawing.
So I colored it. I think he’s doing something else for the actual cover. maybe this’ll run on the back.
I wanted to type about the reference I used for a page of my Speaker short that’ll be in DHP#7– yeah that one.
I found this picture on the internet that I liked.
And cutting it up along with another picture I made this mess in Photoshop.
and then the final page. I kept that silhouetted lighting set up and the basic shape and color.
If anything reference is good for getting you to try out stuff in a way you might not if you were just pulling ideas out of your own head.
also also also, today I got this Adam Warren Dirty pair thumbnail in the mail. It’s the first comic book art I’ve ever bought for my lonesome.
And here’s how the page looked in print. This book was such a huge deal to me when it came out (still is)
This week I’ve been digging around on the g.e-hentai.org site. The wealth of amazing comics on there is nuts.
I’m really into these Book of the beast anthologies on there. It’s like the finest in furry porn, I think it’s put together by Trump, who I remember did a couple things with Radio comix back in the days that I was also doing stuff with them. These books also have some American dudes from that scene like Miu (Michael Vega) and Fred Perry.
I’m really into the layout of this page with the stairs around the pillar. Also I like a cat in glasses.
