Mongul vs Wonder Woman


Just noticed that I never got around to posting this sketch.
I sketched this right before I started work on the short story I did with Peter Tomasi in Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #1.
This piece is my take on the fight between Mongul & Wonder Woman from the Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons classic "For The Man Who Has Everything".

Windy City Comicon: The Falcon


Given how much I dislike birds, it's okay for me to say that since I grew up with a dad that's a falconer, I'm more than a little surprised to say that this may be my favorite piece from the show.
