Here are a couple of double-page "spreads" from two of the comics projects I'm working on. Click on the images for a larger view....
First up are pages 2 & 3 of the Skorpion graphic novel I'm developing with Gravedigger artist Rick Burchett. Skorpion is a 60s international adventure inspired by European super-criminal comics like Diabolik and Kriminal. Skorpion is in that tradition, but also incorporates a lot of other pop culture tropes of the era, with influences including kung fu flicks, Jonny Quest, Eurospy movies, and British TV shows like Danger Man and The Avengers.
Then there's this - pages 2 &3 of Sinbad: The Coils of the Serpent, drawn by Eduardo Barreto, wherin the dashing Persian mariner and his crew engage in battle with a brutish cyclops. I've previewed a lot of this project here, and expect that Eduardo & I will have the proposal doing the rounds by the end of February.
Both of these projects are currently without publishers, but I'm hopeful that they'll get picked up.
