Moondog Express


Ahoy-hoy,
There's not much I can post at the mo, since as far as I know neither series I've been working on this year has been announced yet. I think both books debut in April, so that could be fun. Haven't had a book on the shelves since September last year, so they're a long time coming. Anyhoo, I think I can show this. The book I'm working on now is a period-piece, and I had to design this steam train for some of the opening scenes. I like how it came out, and took a long time, so just bloody look and appreciate ok? Jeezuz, I give and I give, for what?... Oh, Dec Shalvey(great Irish artist who took over Freakshow and is now drawing a kick-ass Frank-n-stein adaptation for classical comics) wrote up a cool end of year comic roundup/review over at his blog, its a good read. The link is over yonder.

That's a pretty cool train man! Ich bin very impressed! I never told ye this man, but I'm a train freak. That electric train you drew there has to be one of my favorite models. And you can also buy these custom built for time travel, you might have seen the demo version in BTTF2! Kudos man, lovely train great inks!

Great pic as always moon. I'm starting to notice a real Lee Bermejo look to alot of your more detailed pieces.

Galvin you monkey. How's by you these days anyhoo?

Stephen Thompson said...

well there's a little x on the front of this train so I'm gonna guess you're drawing an x-men book, probably set in the past and this is their version of the Blackbird.

Dec said...

I second that estimation.
It's backed up by the fact there's no train-tracks, so i reckon (much like the traditional blackbird) the train can fly.

Wrong. Dead Wrong.
