The Beat Down! page 6

(I should mention that these are the pages produced for our limited-edition teaser comic that we debuted at Comic-Con: although they appear to form a complete sequence, several are actually cherry-picked from the full 24-page script so Elvin could choose the best pages to show off his skills in time for the Con. There’s a LOT more that we haven’t shown you yet – but hopefully we will soon.)

It’s been two weeks since Comic-Con, and I’m still finding my feet! What an amazing time. Elvin and I had lots of interest in our comic, THE BEAT DOWN! – I’ll post more pages in a few days. In the meantime, enjoy these terrific pics from my main man Orion: A whole lot of cosplay, plus one handsome gentleman…

LOOK WHAT I MADE!

I made a comic

10 Jul

by Mike Hansen

Hey everybody,

I’ve finally finished my work on my first original comics project, just in time for Comic-Con next week! WOOT!

It’s a new series called THE BEAT DOWN! and it’s written by me and drawn by comics newcomer Elvin Hernandez. Elvin’s a terrific artist, and I have a feeling he’s going to get a lot of comics work thanks to his work on this book.

Here’s the cover art for the teaser comic we’ve printed for Comic-Con, colored by Donovan Yaciuk (creator of the awesome SPACEPIG HAMADEUS series) – click to big-ify:

Is that sweet, or what?

Elvin’s drawing this series in no less than THREE different art styles. It’s looking pretty fantastic so far.

We’ve published a “teaser” comic that Elvin will be selling at his Comic-Con table in Artist’s Alley (booth #EE-15). If you’re at the Con, swing by and say hi!

I’ll post some more of Elvin’s art over the next few days, before I drive down to San Diego.

Last month, G4’s Attack of the Show interviewed the awesome Jim Mahfood (Stupid Comics, Clerks, Tank Girl, Grrl Scouts, Marijuanaman, Generation X, etc.) – I haven’t seen anyone else link to it, so I am. WordPress won’t let me embed it (because it uses old embedding codes, or something), so check it out here.

Mahfood had a limited Tank Girl sketchbook minicomic at Tr!ckster this year, but it was a bit too pricey for me at the time. Maybe next year…
