Official Press Release
Hey, True Believer!
Like I've said before, I'm lucky enough to see all sorts of way cool art. Some in sketch form, some in full pencil and ink. And sometimes I get passed fully colored art that makes me say, "Yep, it's official: comics kick major butt."
Take, for example, these two pieces given to me by the fine folks of UDON. First up is the cover to SPIDER-GIRL #42, which was illustrated Ron Frenz and colored by UDON's Shane Law. This issue swings into stores on January 2nd.
