The Green Hornet Is Coming!
Hello Pulp Friends,
because i have been out of town this weekend for the Charlotte MiniCon (again many thanks to Shelton Drum, Linda, Dustin and everyone else for inviting me and my wife at the show and for gifting us such a lovely time :)) I haven't had time to work on a new Kara Bocek page (which will be back next week).
I did have time, though, to do this little teaser illo to finally make a big annoucement (well, it's big for me being the pulp fan you all know): I was asked by Dynamite and Matt Wagner to be part of the new pulp adventures of Green Hornet Year One, which will be on the shelves this April. While I am not drawing the book (the very talented Aaron Campbell is the artist for the title) I will be coloring it and will be providing alternate covers starting from issue 2 (with Matt's covers, just like we have done on Zorro).
Matt and Dynamite were very happy with my colors on Zorro so they asked me if I was willing to color the GH book, and since I am a big fan of the Green Hornet I couldn't pass on the chance to be involved with such cool project (I have seen the pages and read the script and it IS a cool project).
Can't show the interiors colored yet or the covers yet, so I did the above illo this afternoon to go with the annoucement.
I will make sure to share more as soon as I can (very excited :))
Have a great Pulp Sunday evening everyone :)
