For the last few months, I have been lettering the (excellent) Image Comics/Shadowline comic Green Wake, drawn by my fantastic friend Riley Rossmo and written by the great Kurtis Wiebe. Kurtis also writes another super-popular Image title called The Intrepids (formerly Rat Bastards) which is drawn by the charming Scott Kowalchuk.
I met Scott at the Calgary Fan Expo in 2010 and immediately took a shine to him. I was thrilled to hear that his book had gotten picked up and I was also flattered when he asked me to contribute a pinup to the book. I whipped up something for him and sent it off, and was soon surprised to find it had made it into the third issue!
Issue #3 of The Intrepids came out about two weeks ago, so I thought it was time to show the pinup to anyone who hadn't seen it. I was originally going to do something with the purple cyber-bear (the book's breakout villain!) but I thought that he'd already been seen enough... Then I thought I'd reference the old Janet Jackson cover from Rolling Stone in years past, and this was the result. I'm really happy with it.
As for the book itself, The Intrepids is about a group of mad scientists that hunt down and destroy other mad scientists. If that doesn't start your engine, I don't know what does.
As always, my weekly webcomic with Trina Johnson, That's So Kraven! has been updated. Check out the most recent strip right here. You can also find me on deviantArt, Tumblr, and Twitter.
