Here's a promotional image I was asked to draw for the CW show iZombie based on the comic book of the same name, created by Chris Roberson and Mike Allred. It was a great book and makes for some pretty durned fun television as well! This image is a tease for tonight's episode-- ZOMBIE RAT!!

iZombie airs tonight at 9/8c on the CW.

Howard the Duck #2: Out today!

Written by Chip Zdarsky, with pencils by me, inks by Eisner-award winning artist Joe Rivera, and colors by the ever talented Rico Renzi. 

I really had a lot of fun with this one. Chip's scripts have been really smart and funny to work on, giving my a lot to sink my teeth into. This was my first time having an inker on a big book, and Joe (Rivera) did an absolutely stellar job. Rico as ever has been knocking it out of the park with his bold color work --

Here's a look at a page from the issue, progressing from my pencils to Joe's inks, to Rico's colors. I hope you'll pick this one up!

For all you smart phone-havers, be sure to download the Marvel "AR" (augmented reality) app for a special instructional video that I made with my friend and internet sensation, Neil Cicierega!

Action Comics #40

Out tomorrow: Action Comics # 40, featuring my "Bill & Ted" movie variant. The cover spoofs "The Death and Return" arc from the Superman comics of my youth.
I was HUGE into those comics as a kid and they are in no small part a big reason why I draw comics today, so this was particularly satisfying to work on. 
Thanks to Mark Chiarello for asking me on in the first place. You inadvertently realized a childhood dream.

Superman/Batman #19

Hey gang,

Here's a look at a cover I just barely squeezed into 2014 for Batman/ Superman. It was fun getting to draw the trio. I think this was my first time drawing the 'New 52' versions of Superman and Supergirl as well. Anyhow, enjoy.

Sleepy Hollow

Hey gang,

Here's a look at my cover to BOOM's upcoming Sleepy Hollow: Origins one-shot, due out in April.
I'm a huge fan of the show and generally just love the story of Sleepy Hollow. I thought I'd make a nod here to the classic Disney animated short, The Adventures of Ichabod. It's one of my favorites.

Hope you like!

Marvel's STAR WARS, no. 1

Star Wars!

I LOVE Star Wars, you guys. 

So you can imagine how excited I was when Marvel asked me to do a variant for issue one of their aptly named new series. They'd wanted some sort of Marvel homage for my cover, so I decided it might be fun to reference this famous cover to Amazing Fantasy #15, by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko.
The cover also references a scene from A New Hope where Luke carries Leia across a divide aboard the Death Star. Thought it'd be neat to flip that dynamic, showing Leia carrying Luke instead.
Anyhow, hope you like!
