Looking Ahead, Part 2.: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The other big news for my 2015 in comics, which broke in mid October, is that I am drawing three issues of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 10" for Dark Horse Comics!

I was introduced to the Buffyverse in college, as the series was coming to a close, and then watched Angel religiously until its heartbreaking finale. So needless to say, I knew my way around the characters, at least as the TV series left them.

Some of the headshots I submitted before being hired:

The timing was a bit tough, between the deadline to finish coloring Ares & Aphrodite, and the fact that my first issue would be due during a month when I was traveling four days out of every week (three conventions, a wedding, and a marathon!). But I made it happen, because, hello? Drawing Spike! 

Oh, yeah. 

My first issue, Season 10 #11, hits stands January 21. Christos Gage and Nicholas Brendon wrote the fantastic script, Dan Jackson made my line art even better with colors, and we have three variant covers by veteran Buffy artists Rebekah Isaacs, Georges Jeanty, and Steve Morris. Issues #12 and #13 follow after! 

A sneak peek at my inks from Issue #12.
