Huntress vs Catman

I just wanted to give a big thanks to all the great folks I met over the weekend who were out at Acme Comics Free Comic Book Day event.  You all couldn't have made me feel more welcome:)
The Acme team not only have a wonderful looking store, they put on a fantastic event to boot! You couldn't find a nicer group of people than the employees, volunteers and customers there over the weekend.  I'm looking forward to heading back to North Carolina already!
Oh, and this Catman & Huntress piece was inspired by a bit action that took place in the background of a fight scene in an issue of Gail Simone and Nicola Scott's Birds of Prey.
Thanks again, Erica!

Mr. Samnee doing a superhero throwdown in a snowy environ is always the formula for excellence, and this piece is no exception. You've utilized the space very effectively, and having Huntress square off against Catman is well chosen. Great stuff, Erica and Chris!

Great meeting you at Free Comic Book Day @ Acme, good sir! We had a great time throughout-- hope you did as well.

I was admiring the sketches you did that people were showing me in my line all day long. :)

I always know I'm going to get something special from you, Chris, but this one just really blew me away!

Thanks for hanging with us ACME Comics folk! We had a wonderful time!!

If anyone is interested in purchasing ($10 plus s & h) a 11 x 17 limited numbered print that Chris did for FCBD (featuring Batwomand and Spiderwoman -posting here on his blog) let me know or email the store:

There are a few, but not many left.

Thanks for the comment on my CAF gallery, Matt!!

Wow, that is a great one!
I noticed you've used a kind of feathering here and in the next post, that you don't always.
