DR WHO - The Impossible Astronaut

(click on the above image for the larger poster view)

Just watched the premiere of the new season of Doctor Who on BBC America and couldn't help to do a quick drawing: the episode was full of very iconic imagery that I had to draw something... before I forget it ;)

AnyWHO, here's 10/15 minutes of fun drawin' :)
Not sure if I should leave as is, or if I should do a more finished/detailed version. Hope you enjoy this in the meanwhile :)

Black Panther MWF #517 Preview & BP MWF News

Black Panther TMWF #517 Preview
~~ Click on the above and below images for the preview ~~

Hello guys,

After Jefte Palo's guest artist issue of Black Panther #516, I am back teaming up with David Liss and wrapping up the first arc of Black Panther Man Without Fear with issues 517 and 518.
Issue 517 is out today (see the exclusive preview above) and 518 has been already delivered to editorial and it will be out a month from now. These two issues are without doubts my best work on this title yet: lots of fun action and lots of revelation by David Liss that will have you say "I didn't see that coming" :)

After 517 (out today) and 518 (out in May), Jefte Palo will be back for a 2-issue event that will see both Storm and Kraven the Hunter guesting on the title. These two issues, #519 & #520, will be both out in June.

I will be back on the book starting with issue 521 that will start a tie-in arc with the big MARVEL event FEAR ITSELF and will feature a new character I was lucky enough to be asked to design (cause it was lot of fun to design :)): AMERICAN PANTHER! (see above teaser released recently by MARVEL).
We will get to this in more details soon :) For now I hope you enjoy the teaser and - most of all - issue 517 in stores today :)

~~ Click on the above image for larger view ~~

Hello guys,

One of the many projects announced at WonderCon this past weekend is PIGS, a new ongoing book at IMAGE by Nate Cosby, Ben McCool, and Breno Temura.
I was invited to do a cover for issue 2 and I happily accepted: big fan of the subject (some of you may remember LEFT ON MISSION, one of my eralier creator owned books) I didn't need to be asked twice to be part of this :) (even if in a cover artist capacity)

Here's McCool's quick synopsis for it (via Twitter):

A 2nd-generation KGB Cuban sleeper cell is activated & assigned to overthrow the U.S. Government.

Story by Nate Cosby & Ben McCool
Art by Breno Tamura
Colors by Chris Sotomayer
Covers by Jock, Francesco Francavilla, Amanda Conner, Paul Mounts, Ben Templesmith, Humberto Ramos, Becky Cloonan and Edgar Delgado.
