Awesome pics, man! Wow, those are the clearest pages I've seen in a while, as in very clean looking, and also in easiness to understand. I think these are the first pages I've ever seen from you. I'd like to see some more in the future! Anyways, keep up the awesome work!
P.S.: What company did you do this for?

I can't complain. Definately pro-quality. And I'd buy this book in a heartbeat. Very solid work!!!

Nice pages! Took me a little while to figure things out, but I can be notoriously slow sometimes (just ask the wife). :)
The art's sweet-looking. Very nice clean lines with professional finishes in the inks. That last page is killer. My only real gripe lies with Panels 2 and 3 of Page 1.
Panel 2 - If I'm reading it right, the gun that's firing is being held by the character who is on the outside of the skytrain we see in Panel 1. This shot would've worked better if you put him in the panel and actually shown him shooting the gun. Right now, it kinda looks like the guy leaning out the window may have shot the gun.
Panel 3 - It looks like the wall is on the right of the shot. Based on the establishing shot from Panel 1, the wall should be on the left. Unless the hooded guy has just teleported around behind the guy in black.
Good looking pages! Would love to see more of your stuff posted here.

The missing pages!
I had all these saved on my old comp to practice inking. I wish I still had the rest of them to see the entire chapter. I remember 14, but 12 takes takes the platter.
Any word on when this will see light?

Thanks everyone! yeah, these are old as hell. I was lucky to get work (Thanks to Mark Brooks), but I am very proud of how they came out.
UniverseX259 - Thanks! This is published by Eric Woodard (awesome guy) at Vineyard Press.
Eddie- You know that means MUCHO coming from you. I'd like to say I'm a lot better now....I hope:p
Cuddly- Thanks....I was trying to play around with angles but wasn't as consistant as i should have been. I learned from that. Look for more of my work in Noble Causes: Distant Relatives #3 in Sept.
WolfPrime- Kev, I have no idea. Eric said he had a 2004 release..possibly..that was the last i heard. He's still working on finishing GUNS #7...

Wow...heh heh...this stuff brings me back. No idea when "A Stranger's Tale" will ever continue. I actually inked Mark Brooks' story (back before he hit the big time) that was to appear in issue #4 I believe (so who knows when #6 will ever see the light of day). I usually try to email Eric once or twice a year to check the progress...2001 seems so long ago at this point.
Great looking pages Ray.

Yeah, Derek.....Mr. Wildstorm...hehe
Man, we have yet to hook up, bro. Whatever happened to that pinup we did together in 2001? It ever see the light of day?
Plus, I KNOW these guys would love to see those Young Justice pages I did, too....( I have to do another DC thing..)
