SUPERMAN/BATMAN #26


hey all,
So, a while back i was asked to be part of something very special . . . i was happy and more than overwhelmed to join a very cool group of 26 artists and writers for the production of DC Comics' SUPERMAN/BATMAN #26 starring Superboy and Robin. It is based on a story by the very great Sam Loeb, the beloved son of writer/producer Jeph Loeb. Sam was an amazing boy who passed far too early from this life due to cancer. I was very blessed to have known him and called him friend.
I feel like the geekiest of fans amongst all these talented superstars . . . but , i was very honored to draw page #9 of this story that Sam wrote. . . both pencils and finished color.

It was truly a special chance to be part of this event and i can't thank Jeph enough for the opportunity.
All the artists and writers have donated their fees, royalties and original artwork to auction to benefit
THE SAM LOEB COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP FUND.

if you get the chance, encourage your comic shop to make sure they've ordered enough of the book.

Here above is my penciled page and then my color version.
enjoy. :)

all the best,

Congrats! You did a great job:) Will definitely keep an eye out for it. The thing I love about your stuff is that you dare to keep it rough. Makes it so much more energetic and exciting. Great job on the colors too.

Mike,

I was psyched to see this page in the comic last time I was in my local comic shop. Great to see your art again!

Keep up the great work!
