Short notice: Attending the Contagion: Outbreak convention in Omaha, Nebraska.

Forgive the late notice but my brother Philip and I will be attending the Contagion: Outbreak convention in Omaha, Nebraska June 10th to the 12th.  If you're in the area, please stop on by and say hi and commission a sketch, buy some sketchbooks or prints if you'd like.  It looks to be shaping up to be a fun con with many sci-fi media actors and authors with comic book artists as well.  So join us in giving this convention a great welcome!

ADVENTURE COMICS #526 is on sale now!

Just in time for Free Comic Book Day, although it's not one of the free comic books being given away, is a published Legion of Superheroes story written by Paul Levitz, penciled by me, and inked by my brother, Philip.  It's been over 10 years since I've drawn XS and it was fun dipping my toe back into the pool of Legion characters.  Granted, I'm not totally in sync with the reestablished Legion, due to some wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff, but diving back in I was glad to draw Night Girl and her bouffant.  Will we see XS in the new Flashpoint storyline?  I'm crossing my fingers.  Here are the pencils for the issue and please go out on Free Comic Book Day, May 7th, to your local comic shop and support them.

The mosaic was produced on the computer and dropped in after Phil finished the inks.

Story took place in a monastery at Lake Tana in Africa.

Night Girl was suppose to look a little older.

hmm should've had a blur note on XS bouncing up and down.

Crack in the earth from previous story in Adventure Comics.  What could it be?

Really fun pages for me and the colorist was suppose to make the shadow translucent in the final book.  Aw well.  The colorist did an awesome job with the FX in the bottom panel.

Awesomely fun page to draw.  Panel 1 is a little tribute to Wings of Honneamise anime.  Got to tech up the cosmic treadmill a bit as well.

Yeah!  Full mosaic!  What could it mean?  I don't know!  Really!
Oh and if you dug the story please let Brian Cunningham know.  Cheers!
