Spawn with Todd is back...



As reported by Wizard and Newarama I am the new artist on Spawn. Brian Holguin will come back as writer. And as a happy surprise Todd Mcfarlane comes back to the book. He will co write with Brian and he will collaborate with me on the art. I do most of the art but Todd will make a pass on my pencils so it will be a collaboration.


With this we have three pro's only interested in telling a new story. There will be a new guy in the foreground but everything else will be the same world we know and love. I liken it to the fact that thruout all these years the Spawn universe has been expanded by the comic book and the toyline but because of the nature of Al Simmons who is basically a private person we have only seen this big bad world that is the Spawn Universe but in glimpse's. Now for the first time we will be given a situation that will allow us to explore every corner of this vast Universe.


So it is new and all the same in the same package...it promises to be a fun ride...will keep you posted...you can also check out its official site...http://endgame.spawn.com/...Whilce...

Image is Back...




Hey, this year see's me officially coming back to Image as a founding member. We got together for the first time in ten years at San Diego CON last year and then at Atomic Comics in Phoenix and again in Chicago and San Diego CON's this year. I can gladly report we're still the same tho' maybe a bit more thoughtful and driven because we all have family's.

This past San Diego CON saw us revealing a brand new Jam Piece with all our characters and announcing a six issue cross-over for late next year being written by our newest member Robert Kirkman. For this project I have created an all new character called "Fortress". He will play a prominent role in the end of the crossover so my issue will be the last one.
Fortress is a character design I created a long time ago while I was in the Philippines. In fact it was gonna be a local comic book there and to be drawn by none other then Lienil Yu who was my student at the time. I have a watercolor/pen and ink pinup by Lienil back then so I guess you can say I already have a variant cover...so I just updated it for today and here he is. He will see life sometime the end of next year.

The main interesting thing about this project which cuts it apart from others is that thruout all six issues every instance Fortress appears he will be drawn by myself, that goes for all the other characters, Todd will draw every Spawn thruout all six issues while drawing one full issue himself.

I'll keep you posted of the progress of this book. Tho' I am now told that there will be a website posted specifically for this book and will have access by all six of us to post our updates as the project rolls along...keep ya posted...

I am also now the official artist on Spawn...leave the details to the next post...Whilce...

Hello Again...

Been away for awhile now but I'm back. It's been quite a ride the last few months. Been real busy with more projects than I could have expected. But I'm back to the board so to speak and now can tell you about most of them, there are still a few I can't yet mention but there is plenty to talk about so in the next few post I'll individually chat about what I've been up to...Whilce...
