The Black Coat!

Well, since there is a new Black Coat mini-series out, Ben said I should do a new pin-up. I don't know for sure if it will make it in or not, but here it is.

This is one of the coolest new comic characters and concepts in years, and I am stoked to be able to contribute something! The new mini is called The Black Coat: Or Give Me Death, and it's awesome! It's even better than the last mini, which itself is awesome. Be sure to check it out. If your shop doesn't carry it, make them.

Be sure to check out their publisher as well. Ape Entertainment is putting out some great books right now. Check out Athena Voltaire as well. She is like a female Indiana Jones, and she's way cooler than Tomb Raider. The book has a really good pulp feel to it, so if you like The Phantom or The Shadow it's right up your alley.

Here's the piece I did for The Black Coat, issue #2. This was my first time inking with brushes, and it turned out pretty well. I thought this was one of the coolest new characters I'd seen in a long time, so I drew this up. I had gotten in touch with Ben, the creator of The Black Coat and sent him the pic. I guess he really liked it because he put it in the second issue. Good stuff.
