On the Shelves: DC Digital Comics

The big industry news this week is the announcement that DC has jumped into the digital comic book business with both feet, doing a deal to bring their comics to both the PSP and iPad. I've been lucky to work with the folks at DC's WildStorm imprint off an on for the last few years on a number of different projects, including the MIRROR'S EDGE mini-series with famed game writer Rhianna Pratchett. And now I'm proud to say that the special #0 issue we did is currently free to download through the DC's digital comic app. You can also download issues 1-3 for a small fee. I'm incredibly excited to have a project I worked on in this first wave of digital comics, so a big 'cheers' to the gang at WildStorm and at DC Comics proper.

Sketchbook: Hal Jordan (Updated)

One last color experiment before I launch into the next issue of Doctor Who, this time featuring the Silver Age Green Lantern, Hal Jordan.

UPDATE: As Mike pointed out in the comments, it would seem I got the color of Hal's boots wrong. They're supposed to be green. In my defense, I think they look cool white. If I get a chance I'll fix the color. Like most comic book artists, I'm kind of compulsive about that sort of thing.

Sketchbook: Wolverine

A quick sketch and color test for a Wolverine pinup I wanted to play with. Doesn't work quite the way I thought it would, but that's why it's a sketch and not a final piece. If I ever get around to doing an actual pinup, I'll post it here.

Sketchbook: NEVERMEN

A quick sketch and color experiment featuring one of the Nevermen from Guy Davis and Phil Amara's THE NEVERMEN. I've been an admirer of Guy's work for a long time now, and I constantly refer to projects like THE NEVERMEN and his own THE MARQUIS for story-telling inspiration. No one packs a lot of story-telling into a page better than Guy.

Sketchbook: Evan Fade

Another quick sketch of my character Evan Fade from NEGATIVE BURN. As many of you may already know, I've been working on a novel featuring Evan in-between my comic book art assignments. Switching back and forth between the art side of my brain and the writing side isn't always easy, so when I get stuck, I like to draw something from the story to help me get back into the swing of things. I did this one this afternoon as I sat down to work on the manuscript for a little bit.
