Just wanted to make the BIG announcement of my latest comic book project. I'm illustrating the back-up story for The Phantom: Double Shot - KGB Noir #4 for Moonstone Comics (quite the mouth-full, right?) and yes indeed I'm quite stoked about it!
To give you the rundown on it, it's an 8 page story based upon one of Moonstone's flagship characters, Captain Action, and is written by the very talented Mr. Jai Nitz (writer of many a fine tale ranging from X-Men Unlimited to The Batman Strikes! to El Diablo onto his latest project Kato: Origins) with covers illustrated by Dennis Calero (X-Factor, X-Men: NOIR, Star Trek: The Next Generation and so on) AND edited by the fine and dandy Mr. Joe Gentile. Ah yes, and I almost forgot, it's penciled and inked by... yours truly.
Why am I so excited? Aside from getting to work with the fella's listed above KGB Noir also marks my 3rd nationally published comic (sweet!) and a big thanks goes to Joe for bringing me into the fold on this one. Another is that it's illustrated purely in black & white which for an artist like myself (who loves the B&W) it's a chance to make each page drip with as much NOIR as possible. And yet another reason is that, well, I just had a great time working on it!
Here's a brief description of the comic as per Comixology.com...
"A special noir mini-series starring The Phantom with tectonic tie-in tales featuring Moonstone Books' best and brightest stars! Deep in the bowels of Madeira Island, the Ghost Who Walks feels the Hammer Strike! And then, Captain Action is caught between Salavdoran ex-cops and a Russian Spetsnaz team, while a woman from his dad's past stirs things up!"
As for it's big release date, I'm told it should be hitting stands next month in May sometime. But I shall be certain to keep you all informed of the exact date as soon as I know of it.
AND as an extra bonus of fun I'll have sample panels posted very soon! Later!
