Reading List

I recently read "Shaman Warriors volume 2" by Park Joong-Ki...awesome! It was recommended to me by Carlos Taylor and now I curse him, for I must track down the other volumes.

Old Work - Memories of Solar Man of the Atom

I'm reading the news from SDCC and I see that Dark Horse is going to publish the Gold Key material, which is swell. It made me think back a few years ago...around 02 or 03...I drew what was supposed to be the re-launch of Solar. Had a great time working with Chris Sotomayor on that.

Clearly it didn't go anywhere and was well covered in Rich Johnston's column on ComicBookResources "Lying in the Gutters."

So here are those pages, hope you enjoy. (I always tell my students, "never show the old stuff"...maybe this will prove why that is a bad idea.)

Sadly, this wasn't my only shot at a re-launch, there was a brief period when Buddy Scalera and I were going to re-launch Bloodshot. That tanked too. No pages by me on that one, but lots of designs that are over on Anthony Koch's Bloodshot fan site. Anthony also has some Solar stuff too.

More covers

In other news, I penciled and inked this Phantom and Mandrake cover for Moonstone Books' Phantom annual...I have no idea when it ships. This one was colored by the multi-talented Nolan Woodard.
If you go to Wowio you can download copies of Phantom #1 and #2 by Ben Raab and me...I believe that they sold out a few years ago.

Recent Covers

Good evening gang, here are some covers that I've penciled recently:

Cryptopia #2 and #3 covers...that's right folks, Cryptopia still lives!

Cryptopia is a sci-fi/mystery that follows an intrepid group of scientist, lead by the main character, Dr. Shannon Palmer, to a recently discovered island where bizarre creatures roam free. Written by Ben Raab, drawn by me and inked by a talented variety of folks, colored by the incomparable Lee Loughridge, has lots of eye-candy, thrilling adventures and great inter-personal character pieces. You'll be able to grab it on Wowio soon.
After I penciled these, Ben sent 'em off to John Rauch for the finishing touch.

That's it for now! I hope that everyone going to San Diego has a blast!
