Batwoman Countdown

Friday September 02nd 2011, 12:24 pm

13 days to go till the launch of Batwoman. It has been a long road, but hopefully worth it to you who are going to pick this up. I know I’m happy with what Haden Blackman and I are building. So as we come closer to the release date, I’m going to feature some art every couple days here. A page or two at a time. The art in raw form, black and white, no lettering, no color. I decided to show some of it in this way because preview pages of the finished work are already online through other venues. So here is page 1…

Too cool. The second Finally! in as many weeks. I know how hard you have worked this past year+ and I hope you are happy with the results. You continue to reach new heights with your artwork.
Now, we need a B&W collection of your first Batwoman run. (DC, are you listening?)

Hey there Karl
Nah, I’m going to wait a few days in between posts to avoid spoilers, and the pages may not appear in order either.

Hey Michael
Thanks so much! And maybe we’ll get a black and white version someday. I saw that they released Hush from Jim Lee in pencil form recently, so you never know.

hello spencer
Thanks. The paper I’ve been using for awhile now is Strathmore 500 series bristol semi-smooth surface, but I get the pre-cut packs specifically packaged by them specifying use for comics professionals, rather than getting sheets or pads. These packs come as two-ply 24 11×17 cut boards. They don’t have the measurements pre-lined for you though, so you have to rule them yourself.
