Correa's inking work has appeared in Lady Death, Chastity, Dungeons & Dragons, and Superman . As a penciler his credits include Pirates Of The Caribbean and Stargate SG1 . Correa will take over from original series artist Will Conrad to complete the final two issues of the Freshmen II limited series. Issue #5 will ship in mid-June and issue #6 will mid-July. Additionally, Top Cow is please to announce that Phil Hester ( Green Arrow, The Darkness ) will provide a cover for issue #5 and Eric Basaldua ( The Darkness Level 3, Hunter-Killer) will provide a cover for issue #6.
"Being chosen for Freshmen 2 has been very rewarding! The scripts are really clever and very, very funny! And the characters are really charismatic," stated Jorge Correa, "Bottom line â€“ I feel honored to be part of this series!"
" Freshmen II is getting really exciting as the series coalesces into a maelstrom of conflict both within the team and with their nemeses. I'd like to see you coalesce into a maelstrom! We're really about to blow the doors off the barn with this series, and once the doors are off the barn, we're gonna blow the sheep, the horses and the pigs," commented co-creator and writer, Hugh Sterbakov, "We're thrilled to have Jorge on board and we're blowing away everything, get out of the way!"
Freshmen II #5-6 are 32 page full color comics in a limited series with a suggested retail price of $3.99. Additional information regarding Freshmen can be found at www.topcow.com .
