DARKNESS 101 COVER SNEAK PEEK!
My outstanding co-creator, writer David Hine emailed and suggested that we should throw caution to the wind and give you all a peek at the black and white art for the first issue of our upcoming run on The Darkness. My reply– “Why the hell not.”
We’re doing a new format with these covers. Starting something new. New creative team. New direction. Cool new wraparound covers. I love ‘em.
I’m going to let the cat out of the bag and get all artsy fartsy for a minute here. My goal with these covers is go try and deal with the balance of light and dark. I’m focusing on making the front (right) half something striking and evocative and then really letting go with the back (left) half. Our eye typically is used to reading things right to left. Doing things this way is kind of a challenge. I’m really trying to make sure that the front half can stand on it’s own and at the same time be part of a more elaborate…and ultimately disturbing whole.
Be sure to check out David’s blog for all sorts of insight, previews, and delightfully mad tidbits–
I’m going to be giving you another sneak peek at the black and white cover to #102 on Thursday. Be sure and check back then.
Now I’d better get back to drawing more of the Darkness. It’s messed up stuff. You’re going to like it.

PILOT SEASON ROUND THREE AND A BIT OF FAIR PLAY!
So this weekend, The Beauty made it to the final round of this year’s Top Cow Pilot season. It was a tough round, but thanks to all of your help and support, we pulled ahead and came in first.
We’ve gone from eight great and vastly different books, down to just two. In this round it’s our book, The Beauty and Theory of Everything. We’ve both worked hard on our books and on promoting them. The Theory of Everything is a solid book, with an out there concept, great art by Thomas Nachlik (who I loved from Last Mortal), AND both T.o.E. and The Beauty were colored by the amazing John Rauch. I’m proud to have Theory of Everything as our opponent in the final round.
NOW, there is one thing that I really need to say…more of a plea, really. Please PLEASE keep voting on the up and up, in this last round. I know that people want to show their support and I know that everyone wants to win. The truth is, I don’t want to win Pilot Season if it comes down to people using bots and underhanded tactics. I will gladly tip my hat and offer a hearty congratulations to Dan Casey, Thomas Nachlik, and the Theory of Everything Crew, if they win. The only way I can feel good about us winning is if it’s done through good old fashioned fair play. I really appreciate this.
So, all of that said, get to voting. You can go HERE to the Top Cow website and vote ONCE per day, per computer. Also, right now, you can read both The Beauty and Theory of Everything in their entirety, there on the site, for absolutely FREE! Not bad, eh? So vote. Tell your friends and family, hell even strangers, to check out the books and then vote every day this week. We all appreciate it.
In the end, my the best book win.

PILOT SEASON VOTING ROUND TWO!!!
So it’s finally time for round two of voting for Top Cow’s Pilot Season. It’s down from eight entries to four. This is where things get tricky, folks. If you liked THE BEAUTY, please vote for it. You can vote once a day per I.P. address and every single vote counts. We are currently in THIRD place. That’s nowhere near good enough. We have a lot more story to tell and the only way we’re going to be able to do that is if we win this thing.
I’ve posted it before, but here is another look at the first five pages of the book.
We absolutely appreciate all of the support. Please get out there and mention it on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets. And most of all, vote. Anything helps.

DARKNESS PRINTS FOR STL SIGNING AND MORE!
I just got my stack of Darkness prints for The Fantasy Shop /Top Cow “ARTIFACTS- END OF THE WORLD EVENT”. I’m really happy with the way they turned out. As I’ve mentioned before, they are 8 x 15 in images, screenprinted on a nice, 140lb acid free watercolor stock. I’m only bringing a limited number, and because this is a special event, I’m going asking $10 each for them.
Also, since it’s a signing within walking distance, I’m bringing a TON of original artwork. I’m going to have a few folders with artwork from my recent Artifacts run, as well as my DC work, such as Detective Comics, Manhunter, Arkham Reborn, and Gotham City Sirens. On top of that I’m bringing along a crate of special $25 pages. This is a variety of pages from just about every book I’ve worked on over the past ten years.
I’ve had several messages asking about sketches durning the signing. I WILL be doing sketches. Due to the number of requests at this sort of thing I’m going to just be doing nice, color, head and shoulder shots. Since it’s an in store event signing I’m only going to be asking $20 for them. Here’s an example of the sort of thing I do–
So there you have it. I’m heading out bright and early in the morning. It’s going to be an amazing trip.
Here is the information on the signing locations and times, again.
Fantasy Shop Florissant
8232 N Lindbergh Blvd
Florissant, MO 63031
Fantasy Shop South County
10560 Baptist Church Road
St. Louis, MO 63128
If you get the chance, drop by and say “hi”! I can’t wait to see everyone.
