If you've been wondering why this blog hasn't been terribly active lately, it's because I'm busy finishing up the art for the last section of Return to Perdition. This is a 180 page graphic novel from Vertigo Crime, written by Max Collins -- chronologically, the last story in the Road to Perdition saga.
As of this writing I still have a hefty chunk of pages to finish -- but the book is now available for pre-order and has an August publication date. Amazon has it listed with the black and white mock-up cover shown below. This is not the actual cover -- but as a promo piece, I think it looks pretty cool -- and does use some of my interior art from the book.
The actual cover is the color piece shown at the bottom of this page -- a wonderful illustration by Lee Bermejo that harkens back to the origins of the Perdition tale. Our story brings the action up to the 1970s, and brings a new generation into play.
I don't want to turn this into a commercial -- but I am rather proud of what Max and I are doing with this project and think it'll be well worth your time if you're at all a fan of our previous work. I'm drawing in a different style than usual -- meant to reflect the edgy nature of the story -- and doing a lot of the drawing digitally. At the pre-order price, it's a heck of a bargain.
And now if you'll excuse me for a while -- I have to finish the thing!
