Panels of the Week - Ultimate Comics: X-Men #27 by Brian Wood (words), Mahmud Asrar (pencils), Juan Vlasco (inks), Jordie Bellaire (colors), and Joe Sabino (letters)
Jean Grey and Psylocke stand poised in the midst of combat, ready to take one another down. I absolutely love the expressions on both of their face’s; they match their dialogue perfectly. Jean is just so determined, fighting so desperately for the survival of her people. Psylocke, on the other hand, is almost nonchalant. She’s ready, but she’s been here before; she thinks she knows the outcome of this battle. The environment, however, disagrees. The coloring of the trees in the background is great; it contrasts wonderfully with the cool tones that came before it, symbolizing the shift in the fight: Jean is in her element here; not Psylocke.
JiM is ending and I guess everybody already knows.
I’m not so good with words (especially in english!), so I’ll say just a couple of “thank you”.
To Lauren and Jake, for the mind of our Lady.
To Jordie, for the skin and the blood of our Lady.
To Clayton, for the voice of our Lady.
To Kathryn, for the soul of our Lady.
To everybody before us, for the world of our Lady.
And to you, the readers, for the love of our Lady.
Thank you very much.
PS: too mushy? Ok, you’re right, stop being sentimental ‘cause I have still a fu###ng book to complete!
Jumping on the bandwagon that Kris Anka and Evan Shaner (and also other artists!) started of drawing your favorite five X-Men — Yearbook style —
a week late!
So yeah. Not in any particular order, though X-23 is typically tops nowadays.
I drew Nightwing’s butt.
Marketing-ish Thoughts on Battle for the Atom
So this randomly struck me right now, and I don’t know why:
Tying in Brian Wood’s X-Men is actually an incredibly smart marketing strategy on Marvel’s part. I feel like part of the reason Marvel so heavily promoted the female-led book was to reach a different audience (which they may or may not have done — I personally know more than a few women who opted to pick up the series as their first monthly comic ever), and - by tying the book into a crossover so soon after its launch - they sort of guarantee that that assumed-to-be-new audience will branch out into other books and be with Marvel for the long haul.*
*(This is, of course, speculative. I’m assuming, here, that Marvel asked Brian Wood to tie his series into the crossover and not the other way around.)
HER WOLFISH GRIN: A web comic about a rock star who is accused of murdering her more-famous husband when he’s found dead with a hastily scribbled suicide note next to his body.
Coming to Tumblr in Fall 2013!*
The first four pages to one of my favorite books I’ve ever worked on: NYX, vol. 2. Kalman Andrasofszky provided the gorgeous lines and I provided the color. I hope you enjoy.
