Among the cooler things that have ever happened to me, here's this: as you may have heard elsewhere on the internet this week, I am the penciler/inker on Dynamite Comics' WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT. I'm in for a twelve issue arc, written by Matt Wagner and colored by my good pal Brennan Wagner, who put my name in the ring in the first place. 

The words "Spirit" and "the" alone make this an honor. Add in the chance to work with Matt Wagner, one of my all-time biggest heroes and inspirations, and to be colored by a friend who I really creatively click with, and you've got an amazing gig going. But then there the story Matt's written for this. This is more than just another Matt Wagner Dynamite pulp book, like Green Hornet or Shadow (years one, both, and excellent comics). It's more than just another Spirit reboot (although big ups to Darwyn Cooke, Sergio Argones, and Moritat, et all). It's bigger. It's different... well, it's all there in the headline that opens the story: WHO KILLED THE SPIRIT?

Holy hell. That pushes this over the top. This is now a dream job. I'm wrapping up the first issue this week, and I'm going right into the second issue from there. I could probably take a couple days off, but nuts to that. I'm too excited to see the story finished on the page. 

WILL EISNER'S THE SPIRIT #1 drops July 1st. For now, enjoy some character designs. And don't worry -- I promise I've gotten better at drawing everybody since I did these.
