Every Street's a Boulevard (NY Countdown Day One)

Hello chaps. As you may or may not know, I will be in New York on the weekend of the 6-8th February to promote JERSEY GODS at NEW YORK COMIC CON. So to celebrate, every day between now and then will be... New Post Day!

Most of these posts will be Jersey Gods themed of course, but I'll probably find the time to slip in some Doctor Who stuff and a few other tidbits as well. If you like what you see, please say hello in the comments section. And if you're going to New York Comic Con, feel free to stop by the Image booth and shoot the breeze with me. I'm generally very friendly (unless my blood sugar is low. Bring sugary drinks, just in case). I will be doing sketches and things!

Speaking of which, let's go:


First off, here's a cover rough for issue one. What used to happen with the covers is that Glen would have a cool idea (or sometimes a frankly oddball idea which I just can't resist - as is the case with the cover to issue 4...) and I'd work up a few roughs to show him. These days, I tend to skip the approval stage and go right to the final cover.

This was a prospective cover for issue 2. I got all the way to the finishing line with this one before Glen, Image and I decided it wasn't right - and I came up with a better idea.


And this was the Christmas card I drew before the holidays, planned to colour, scanned in and lost when my hard drive died. Here it is in its raw, unexpurgated glory. That's quite a package Barock is stowing there. Merry Christmas.

Oh man DD - this so made me laugh when I saw it. If my mouth had been full, I'd have spit up for sure.

Flippin' marvelous! I look forward to a daily dose.

This is gonna be like the JG advent calender I was hoping for

Of course, normally superheroes at DC and Marvel have no visible package.

Overcompensating, I suppose.

I'm stealthily trying to bring "the bulge" back into comics.

If I was Spider-man, going out in the cold, dark nights, I'd have a stealthy tug at it every now and again, when no-one was looking, just to avoid any negative reviews. Or maybe tape a cucumber to my inside leg.

Cherry Hill Mall!! Awesome. I hope they stop at a Wawa to grab a shortie.
