I drew a BW graphic novel a few years back titled, Eat That Frog. I gave Megan Wilson a handful of pages to color for fun and this is the result. Makes me wish it was published in color.

pixmash said: Hi Paul. I just caught up & read issues 1 to 4 of Sovereign and was really blown away. Its one of the strongest, most enjoyable titles I've read this year (and there's lots of competition - especially at Image). I loved the concept, the narrative structure & of course the fantastic art work. Are there immeadiate plans beyond issue 5 (as Sovereign doesn't feature in the August and September solicits)? Also just to say I really enjoyed your art in the amazing Catalyst comics too. Regards, Andrew

Thanks for supporting Sovereign and Catalyst Comix! It really means a lot to hear from readers.

I don’t have a concrete answer for you regarding Sovereign issue 6. I’ve remained on hand to do more for several months, and hopefully I’ll have an update for fans in December when the trade is released.

Valhalla Mad is something Joe and I have put a lot of love into. I can’t wait for everyone to read it in 2015. In the mean time, check out some of my previous work on Aqua Leung and Dogs of Mars, both from Image Comics.

A new god-sized series filled with myth, mirth, and mayhem
Joe Casey (SEX, THE BOUNCE) and Paul Maybury (SOVEREIGN) reunite for  VALHALLA MAD, a new series about the greatest cosmic drink-up in all of the Nine realms, coming to Image Comics in 2015.
VALHALLA MAD introduces a set of brand new characters: the Glorious Knox, Greghorn the Battlebjorn and Jhago the Irritator. The series depicts this
particular trio of fun-loving gods’ return to Earth—Manhattan, specifically—to drink and party and revel in their resplendent godhood after many decades of being away. Needless to say, they find a very different world than the one they last visited.
"This book is different than anything I’ve ever done before, and working with Paul again on something that we own has been a blast so far,” said Casey. “And even though we’re using a very specific Silver Age comics’ language to tell the story, there’s a much deeper, more personal meaning to the work that I hope readers will connect to. It’s the best of both worlds: bombast and heart.”
“Teaming up with Joe again to bring Valhalla Mad to life has been a dream,” added Maybury. “It’s a book about friendship, life and of course, the gods.”
“One of the great things about Joe Casey is that he’s always looking for new ways to push himself,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “He’s so full of ideas—and better still, different kinds of ideas—and is always trying something new. The only chance of getting a book that is ‘more of the same’ from Joe is if ‘the same’ is defined by his continued dedication to surprising and subverting readers’ expectations of what comics can be.”
The party begins in VALHALLA MAD #1, filled with myth, mirth, and mayhem from Image Comics in Spring, 2015.
For more about the book, here’s an interview Joe gave to USA Today.

Sovereign #4

Paul Maybury, Afu Chan, Chris Roberson

I have completely fallen in love with this book. The combination of Maybury and Roberson’s world building is so encompassing that as soon as i open the book I feel it drawing me right back into this land. I constantly want to know more about what all these character motivations are and how they fit into the bigger picture of the conflict that’s looming over all their heads. The chapter break pages are some of my favorite moments, the iconography is always so striking, the quotes so poignant, it serves as a jolt to wake you up, as well as a palette cleanser to get you ready for whats coming. This book should not be missed!

I added some of OOSA artist Paul Maybury’s art to the store. Take a look!

Found some old Whole Foods photos. I don’t believe I’ve ever posted these particular photos of my Warhol sign. I don’t remember ever posting the Yellow Submarine one.

Gabe Soria compiled “a mixtape of every song sung/played/talked about/heard in the original fifty issue run of Love & Rockets “Locas” stories by Jaime Hernandez.” And it is here. For you.

I don’t reblog very often. This is cool enough to make an exception. Also, remember that time I did a Spider-man story for Strange Tales in the same issue that had stories from the Hernandez brothers? I still can’t believe that actually happened.
