Avengers A.I. ends in April
As you’ve probably heard by now, Avengers A.I. is coming to an end on April, with issues 11 and 12. My buddy Sam wrote a nice obituary that you can read here.
Allow me to thank all the readers and the support we got since the beginning. This book was a joy to make, mainly for two reasons:
1. Our team, which is has some very talented and good people. Jon Moisan, Tom Brevoort, Frank D’Armata, Clayton Cowles, Valerio Schiti and the work force that is Lauren Sankovitch.
And of course, Sam Humphries, a genuinely good and truly talented crazy man.
2. The fact that I was able to draw whatever I wanted was pretty amazing and is something every artist looks forward too. Sam wrote some crazy shit, I drew some crazy shit and never, in any moment, someone said: “hold on, that’s some crazy shit. We need to step back”. Trust me, we tried, we pushed, but we got nothing but support.
Thank you Lauren, Tom and C.B: Cebulski for the opportunity of drawing an ongoing so early. I’m looking forward to the future.
Thank you Sam.
Thank you readers. We’ll be around.
This… this was fun.
Anatomy of page - page 2 from Age Of Ultron #10AI, written by @MarkWaid
This one required drawing several layers to be colored and assembled. You can see the complete piece first, then all the individual components, including a couple of replacement heads fot the Wasp.
From Age Of Ultron #10AI, the history of Hank Pym.
This issue wrapped up Age Of Ultron from Pym’s perspective and launched Avengers A.I. Mark Waid wrote what I think is a masterpiece of an issue and I consider myself a lucky guy to be able to draw it.
I’m particularly found of this sequence. In only eight pages, he was able to condensate the history of the character. He could’ve simply picked the famous moments and we’d have a montage to do the job. Instead, Mark showed us Hank’s motivation, heart and soul through the first four pages (while breaking our heart to pieces). Then he used the remaining space to take us to today’s Hank.
Q:What is Man Plus? It looks really cool and I'd love to read it.
Thank you very much.
MAN PLUS is my creator owned comic that I’m putting together. It’s a cyberpunk thriller and the first story is 4 issues long.
It has been on the works for some time, but my schedule hasn’t allowed for a quicker production. However this year I’ll be dedicating more time to it and it should be out in 2015. First issue is written, as are significant chunks of the others chapters. I will be diving into the actual pages really soon. For now I’m working on some character designs.
I’ll keep posting some previews and work-in-progress pictures and let you all know once we have some dates and official information.
