So if you’ve happened to stumble into your local comic shop this past week you might have been lucky enough to snag my variant cover for Godzilla: Oblivion #3 and if you did purchase it with your hard earned money I am much appreciated!
I’ve recently been fortunate enough to get my shot at doing some narrative work for the big G and will be illustrating issue #2 (I think) of his up and coming series “Rage Against Time.” It’s similiar to the “Godzilla: In Hell” series, where each issue is sort of a stand-alone with a new creative team while staying congruent to the over all theme of the series. So for R.A.T. each story will have the big guy emerge in a different timeline of civilized history. SPOILER: the timeline that I’ll be illustrating will pit Godzilla against the Greeks and due to the insurmountable odds their civilization is faceing look to the gods for assistance. That’s all I’m saying! Nope, sorry, I’ve already said too much. I’ve recently finished the cover and will start production here in mid June. I’m very excited, now the question remains… are you?
Now if you’re like me you’re probably really into classic monsters to the point where they had way to much of an impact on you as a child. Thus, ultimately sculpting your perspective of the world into a bizarre outlook that at times alienates from our fellow human beings and their superficial social constructs (damn social media and the lies it perpetuates). Anyway, I was lucky enough to be able to contribute my skills to the widely anticipated Kong of Skull Island series coming out through Boom Studios and written by the uber talented James Asmus. As much as I love Godzilla, Kong will always be my first. So when I caught wind of the his project I pushed hard, really hard, to be apart of it. Luckily they said yes and graciously assigned me a cover. So I can say in the past couple months I’ve gotten to work on two of my all time favorite classic monsters! Now I just need to land Creature from the Black Lagoon and Jurassic Park (it’s a new classic) and I’m set on childhood favorites. Well, it’s past noon, and I’ve got mountains of work to get through today.
Gnar the nostalgic wrapped pig.
