Back at Marvel having a blast and setting new goals. Wanna see if I can break my record for consecutive monthly books while drawing my best work ever. I've become quite the efficiency
expert, increasing productivity and experimentation while keeping a strict focus on consistency.
A bit of a balancing act, but invigorating.
Kicking off with Daredevil
...followed by Wolverine and the X-Men
#17 (what is it with the number 17?)
...and then MARVEL NOW POINT ONE
which prologues the FF
series I'm launching with the crazy cool Matt Fraction via this Ant-Man story:
So far, so good. The first issue of FF is in the can and I seem to be
on track to not need a fill-in artist for a good while. I'm selfish that
way. I'm having so much fun that I've done multiple covers and
images that may not see print before the first collection. For example:
That's actually the image where I first came up with the logo for the series.
It's no secret that The Kirby issues on Fantastic Four are my all-time favorite comics,
"The Galactus Trilogy" my favorite comic book story ever. So, to be teamed up
with my pal, Matt (and the award-winning Laura Allred) with our own humble
version of the FF has got me intimidated yet pulsating with excitement. Ant-Man is
one of my favorite characters, Medusa was my first comic book crush, and She-Hulk
and Miss Thing are my latest. It's almost too much. But you won't hear me complaining.
If you dig what we're doing, please tell your friends to pick it up so we can keep doing it.
