DC Comics/Vertigo has posted a lettered color preview of the cover and first four pages of the second issue of the new Tom Strong series. Click HERE to see the preview, and take a look at two more pages in color above (and in pencil below) featuring our new version of The Terror in action. Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril #2 is out this Wednesday.
A few weeks ago I did a lengthy phone interview with Swain from SiDEBAR, a comics, art and pop culture podcast. We discussed everything from how I got into the business, my coworkers, my process and various projects I’ve drawn, including Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril. My episode was just posted, and you can click HERE to listen online or go to iTunes and search for episode 230 of SiDEBAR in the Podcast section of the store.
DC Comics/Vertigo solicited the fifth issue of the new Tom Strong series today. Above is the preliminary color version and below is my pencil art for the cover. Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril #5 is written by Peter Hogan, inked by Karl Story and colored by Jordie Bellaire and goes on sale November 27.
Also buried in the solicitations is the news that I’ll be drawing an upcoming issue of The Flash. I’ll have more details about this project at a later date, but at this point I can tell you that The Flash #25 also goes on sale on November 27 and is being written by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.
