Mark and I have been working behind the scenes to get the word out and hopefully we'll have some interviews and previews to show real soon. For now here's one of the great panels I get to draw in this book. I've been trying to convince Mark to throw some zombie camels in the book too but no dice yet. I may have to sneak them in in the background.

Panel inks...

This may be the sweetest panel in Graveyard of Empires. I haven't finished the book but it really goes downhill after this. A zombie book doesn't have to be all doom and gloom.

Plugging along....

I've been knee deep in Graveyard of Empires so I can finish it before I start my next big project. It's been solicited so I'm guessing it's not a secret any longer. I'm doing NORTHLANDERS with Brian Wood! I really really can't wait to jump into it as Brian has promised it's gonna be dark and mean. All together it's 9 issues so it's gonna be epic. Vikings and swords and horses and blood! Not to mention sprawling country sides and harsh elements! It's going to be like nothing I've done and I can not wait.

Also, here's a panel in progress from issue two and the inks for the cover of two as well. I wanted to be really simple and graphic with the covers while at the same time have each one represent a different side of the war. The first is the Marines so the second had to be the Taliban. Actually, zombie Taliban to be exact. mark and I have really been trying to get the word out so hopefully soon you'll start to see some interviews and the like popping up around. Here's a small glimpse that IFANBOY was kind enough to do, GRAVEYARD PREVIEW. More soon.

Thinking out loud...

I thought I'd post a quick I did when I was trying to figure out just what Graveyard of Empires would look like. It always helps me to sit down and just start drawing when I'm trying to come up with something. Rarely do I have something fully formed in my head before pen touches paper. This especially is true with covers.

Back from the dead.....

So it's official that Graveyard of Empires is coming out in June. It's in the latest Previews catalogue and hopefully we can really get the word out. So feel free to to ask about it in your local store or pre-order a copy.

In the meantime, here are some rough sketches form some recent pages. I'm finally getting into the meat of the zombie fun. Nothing beats drawing Afghan zombies except maybe Afghan zombies getting blown up. We've set up the book so it gets progressively crazier and more action packed as it goes so I'm looking forward to drawing the hoards of undead.
Also, here's the final cover for issue one. I'm pretty pleased with it. I wanted each cover to be a simple graphic image and I think the first two really worked out.

Lastly, to make up for the lack of posts I threw in a life drawing I did recently that I thought came out pretty good. That's all for now. More soon...

EDIT: Just wanted to throw up the Diamond order code for those interested - APR110400
