One of the highlights of the past few months has been working on Iron Man - The Rapture, for Marvel Comics. Traditionally I don't delve into the world of the Superhero genre all that much but when I was asked if I'd like to do covers for Iron Man there was hardly a way I could say no, especially after I got a look at Lan Medina's incredible interior art. The story by Alexander Irvine is a real treat too. That makes for some splendid comics reading and you'll definitely want to make sure The Rapture is on your hit list.
The covers run the gambit from the traditional approach; pen, brush, and ink, to experiments in multimedia. I've been straddling two worlds between comics, which gravitate towards a more traditional approach, and the commercial art world where anything goes. This series' covers are an amalgam of those stylistic choices and Iron Man - The Rapture was a perfect vehicle to unleash something in this vein where technology collides with the organic. I'm not even sure if it was a conscious statement on my part. Each cover fairly dictated it's own direction and I just went along for the ride. Be sure to check out this most excellent new mini-series which goes on sale November 3.
