Young Justice #12 out today!

Young Justice #12 - cover colors

Young Justice #12 cover art

…and I didn’t draw it. Well I drew the cover, but the interior has “fill-in” art by another artist.

When  I started on the book it was about a month behind schedule, and month after month we just weren’t able to pull enough ahead to make up an issue in the schedule. So, we got a fill-in issue and I jumped directly from drawing #11 to Young Justice #13.

The good news for me is that starting with issue #14 I’m inking the interiors in addition to penciling them. I’m just finishing up the inks on #14 now while penciling issue #15. I can’t wait for everyone to see how that looks (although I’ve inked all my covers on this title, so the look shouldn’t be too startling), but that’s a couple of issues off.

In the meantime, Young Justice #12 is written by the regular team of Greg Weisman and Kevin Hopps, and continues the storyline wiht Ra’s al Ghul, Talia al Ghul and Clayface begun last issue. It’s a good read and I recommend checking it out. I’ll be back drawing the interiors next month with part three of our Clayface epic!

As always, you can pick up the comic in digital form or at your local comic shop, and questions and comments are always welcome!

    1) Are you going to do an entry on making the cover?

    2) Although you didn’t pencil interiors, did you have any part in designing Matt Hagen and Lucius Fox in this one?

    Yes, I’m behind on blog posts, but I should have looks at the recent Young Justice covers soon. Sadly I was NOT involved in designing Matt Hagen or Lucius Fox, which would have been a lot of fun.

    Cool. You were only behind because of all the awesome work you’re doing on future issues, right?

    Busy with comics work, yes. And I couldn’t be more excited about what’s coming up on future issues of Young Justice!
