Yesterday I mentioned how I re-wrote the opening to MANLY TALES OF COWARDICE #6 to accomidate introducing new characters. I figured if I was already homaging one friend with MATT OBLIVION, I might as well homage another by throwing-in ARTEMIS SKANKS. What can I say? I wrote this in summer 2008. I was consumed with FAR ARDEN at the time. And KEVIN CANNON rocks–everbody knows that–which is why FAR ARDEN was nominated for an EISNER this year. Vegas says Kevin is a dead lock. At any rate, Kevin says he likes the homage (though I wonder)…but unlike OBLIVION, I don’t think we’ll be seeing much more of SKANKS.
Oh! And I started “connecting the pages” on these two pages. Trying to go with more of a poster effect with each even/odd page combination.
ALSO: Remember how I mentioned on Wednesday that since the Daily Goal Sketches were coming to an end I made a promise to myself to really up the craftsmanship on them? Yeah well…today’s SUPER SKRULL was done in a time crunch and isn’t so awesome. Sue me. Oh–and when my client was given the drawing, he liked it but had one question: “Where is the Invisible Woman’s power?” I assured him the Super Skrull was using it, we just couldn’t see it.
