Sketchbook Update

Just a quick update on the sketchbooks some of you ordered a few weeks back. It's taken much longer than expected to do sketches in all 100 sketchbooks I ended up selling online. I apologize for the delay, but the books will be shipped out by the end of this week and should arrive within the next week or two depending where you live.

Also I wanted to clarify the sketch policy. Please understand that I am not taking requests for the sketches inside the book, in fact they are just very quick doodles, not elaborate, detailed commissions. If anyone is unhappy with this, I will be happy to provide a full refund, simply email me.

Thanks for your patience!

Today the STRANGE ADVENTURES Anthology from Vertigo hits stores and in addition to great stories by the likes of Brian Azzarello, Eduardo Risso, Pete Milligan and others it features an 8-page Sci-Fi story by me.

As a challenge from editor Mark Doyle I did a story about one of, if not the strangest characters in DC Comic' history, ULTRA THE MULTI-ALIEN (His original appearance from Mystery In Space #103 featured above). I'm really proud of how the comic came out, it may be my best short story and features great colors by my Sweet Tooth collaborator Jose Villarubia and awesome old-school lettering by Superboy's letterer John J. Hill.

Above I've posted my initial design sketch for the character from my personal sketchbook and below are some of the layouts for the story. Check them out then go grab the comic to see the finished story!
