Buffy is back!!

It's official, Dark Horse's Scott Allie announced in San Diego that Buffy is coming back to comics with none other than Joss Whedon himself behind the wheel. Laura and I are HUGE Buffy geeks so this is major news for us, and since it's set in continuity as "season 8" it just makes it that much cooler. Here's a drawing of Buffy (aka Sarah Michelle Gellar) to commemorate the news.

Exterminators #8

Check this out! It's from the Vertigo website.
Written by Simon Oliver; Art by Chris Samnee;
Cover by Philip Bond
A special stand-alone issue with guest art by rising star Chris Samnee (Queen and Country) presents Henry with a problem that could turn out more tragic than any pitched battle with bugs: the dreaded "two girlfriends" conundrum — proving that the only force more potent than nature is the human heart.

Yeah, so the cover's by Philip Bond and it is amazing!! I'd buy it just for that! Don't forget to get yours next Wednesday folks :) Be warned though it may not be wholesome Grandma friendly.

the Big Hurtt's inks!!!!


Here's a sketch I did at the dining room table one night when Laura and I had Brian and Cullen over. Brian took it home and made it so awsome I just had to post it here! Oh yeah it's Freakhunter again by the way. Check previous posts for some more doodles of him.

Detour post!

I was gonna post photos from the trip to San Diego here but it looks like Laura already did all of the hard work for me (as per usual). Anyhoo, go check out Lunchnotes for some awful pictures of me, cute pics of Lulu and a sign that says "shitheads". Then next post'll have doodles, fer real.

Zillion year anniversary

Yesterday was our third wedding anniversary and since Laura likes it when I doodle stuff for her this is what she got. I wanted to make something romantic but this is the best I could come up with.
This'll be my last post until after San Diego. I'll try to have some fun stuff for ya next week.

Constantine

Here's another doodle to hold everyone over a few days. I'm getting close to deadline here so I'm trying to put all of my time and energy into my current project instead of sketching (or cussing at my stupid scanner). This is another piece where I just went straight to the finished product instead of pencilling. It looks a little frantic but I kind of like the immediacy of it. See ya in a few.

Swamp-Thing

This was originally just gonna be a quick doodle but the more I looked at it the more it needed. So that's where all the crazy linear stuff came from. Definitely not something I'd want to do for more than a page or two but a fun little exercise just the same.

Dead Acres page 1

Alright folks, here's the first page to Dead Acres! Like I said the other day it's a pitch I was working on with Cullen Bunn a while back and really hope to flesh out some day. Until then I'll try to keep it alive in the blogoverse. Seven pages is all I ever got to do for this yarn but I'll post 'em here over the next week or so. Also, unlike any of my other work I was planning on lettering this myself so early test balloons are actually on the original art which will hopefully make it a little easier to follow along. Take care.
