Brian Churilla of THE SECRET HISTORY OF DB COOPER is my personal art god who I find it weird enough to be friends with. Sadly, he doesn’t sell original art, no matter how much I threaten him, but he does do commissions.
He’s gonna be at Phoenix Comicon this weekend and he’s only got 3 (THREE!) commission slots left open. You can snag yours right here before the show opens or stalk Brian at Table 666 (no, seriously).

Fantastic Four model sheet by John Byrne. Also, the endpapers for our coming John Byrne’s Fantastic Four Artist’s Edition, which I saw printed and bound for the first time today. Marvel Comics, I can’t thank you enough for letting us do this one.
Turned in my final G.I.Joe cover this week (at least for a little while - it is not one of the ones pictured above). I wanted to publicly acknowledge my editor for this series, Carlos Guzman at IDW. Creating these covers was an exciting opportunity for me and it turned out to be a very rewarding, enjoyable process. I hope that comes across in the work, and thanks again, Carlos for your valuable feedback, encouragement, and patience.

GHOSTED #1. JULY. PRE-ORDER.
Criminal mastermind Jackson T. Winters has spent the last decade languishing in prison after his last heist went horribly wrong. Now, in return for breaking him out, a rich eccentric tasks him with capturing a ghost for the millionaire’s macabre collection in the new Image Comics/Skybound mini-series GHOSTED.
Written by Joshua Williamson and drawn Goran Sdzuka, with Miroslav Mrva on colors and Eisner nominee Sean Phillips (FATALE) providing covers, GHOSTED, set to debut in July, is a dark supernatural mystery crossed with a classic caper. Expert thief Winters must assemble a completely different kind of team than the one he lost ten years before, made up of ghost hunters and paranormal experts. But the haunted house they enter may be more of a match than they’d bargained for.
“For years my obsession has been to do a book that took place in a haunted house; a crime and horror title, one that was fun but went to some dark edgy places,” said writer Williamson. ”‘Gritty’ has become a sort of pop word to describe a certain kind of book but it really is the best way to illustrate Ghosted.”
Williamson isn’t shy about putting his characters’ dark sides on display, either. “One of my favorite things to write are the bad guys. The underbelly of the crime world. Characters that are tortured, and are kind of jerks. Ghosted has plenty of that and has been a blast.”
The first issue of the five-issue miniseries is set to go on sale on July 10. It can be pre-ordered now (Diamond Code MAY130405) from the May issue of Previews.
Check out my boy Josh’s new book, dudes and dudettes!
Excited for this book.
