Eeek! I’ve been sitting on my hands about this!!! I was super honoured to join as a guest artist for issue #6 of the super duper new Young Avengers series that Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Team Young Avengers have been making waves with! It’s an awesome series and I really wanted to do a great job by Kieron’s script. I had a HELL of a lot of fun doing this issue, I really enjoyed it! :D I really hope that existing fans will enjoy it too.
If you’re not buying this series already then you should completely just go ahead and dive in! I have a few non-superhero-reading-friends and they have easily jumped in and are totally enjoying it. If you have a comic shop nearby, they will absolutely get it in for you, and if not, then you can buy through an online site such as Comixology or Marvel!
None of the interiors for #6 are out and about yet, but in the meantime, check out this awesome cover Jamie did!!!
Here’s the solicit info:
KIERON GILLEN (W) • KATE BROWN (A) Cover by JAMIE MCKELVIE Wolverine Costume Variant By Mike Del Mundo • Ever wonder what the super hero equivalent of a terrible soul-sucking talent-wasting temp job is? You haven’t? Oh go on. Actually, don’t. We’ve done it for you and written a story about it. This one. • Wonder what Tommy (aka Speed) has been up to? Discover herein. • Wonder why mutant David Alleyne (aka Prodigy) hasn’t been even in the background in any one of the eight thousand X-books? Discover that herein too. • Existential horror turns cosmic horror as something emerges from the shadows of the past. It seems the Young Avengers have yet one more thing to worry about. 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$2.99
(Twenty pages was just enough to get really attached to drawing Tommy & David! I miss drawing them already!!)
