I finally got around to inking this picture - the original sketch is in my Scraps folder - and then continued my 'love/hate relationship' with Photoshop! Quite pleased with how the hotknives turned out here!
Thanks for the kind words and the ! I don't think I've ever been compared to Herge before but that's definitely a compliment And yeah, Pete Wisdom is great! I've only just gotten over Marvel cancelling Captain Britain and MI.13!
I don't know - they advertised the fact Blade was in it a lot so you'd have thought that would have brought a few people in. What scared me was how quickly Marvel cancelled it without really giving it a chance. Sigh indeed!
That was a great story - and if memory serves he did get better pretty quickly considering Colossus beat the snot out of him - but regardless it was one of Warren Ellis's better moments on the series I think. Great art from Casey Jones too - anyone know what he's drawing these days?
He's in the (not really very good) New Excalibur series at the moment - but for Pete at his best, check out the Wisdom limited series and Warren Ellis' run on the original Excalibur. I'm not a fan of all of Warren Ellis' stuff, but this was good.
