Spirit #21 Pages
I've never struggled so much with comic pages as I did with the pages I did for Spirit #21. It is an incredibly daunting task to work on the creation of who is widely agreed to be the best sequential artist in history. I need to thank my editor Joey Cavalieri for giving me not only the chance to work on the Spirit but also the advice and encouragement that allowed me to get the job done. These pages are two of my favorites from the issue. It was also a great honor to work with Sergio on this book. If you never worked on a Sergio Aragones script you're missing out. Sergio draws out the entire issue in cartoon / thumbnail form. I can't tell how much of a nostalgia trip it was working on this book. I felt like a 12 year old with my Mad Magazine collection all over again. I had so much fun with the scripts I met up with Sergio at Comic Con 2008 and had him sign them. Awesome! Anyways, back to my pencils, I hope you like them and go out and grab the issue!
