The Ancient Age
This past weekend was Free Comic Book Day, it’s kind of like Easter and Halloween wrapped up in a big Christmas bow.
J Chris Campbell was nice enough to invite me to not only contribute a story but also help out with the cover, the result of which you can see above you. I did the big rooty tree at the bottom, and Bernie Gonzalez is rockin’ the warriors up top. The digital comic weighs in at a hefty 90+ pages (that is, if digital comics weighed anything), all of it filled with great comics talent. Thanks J Chris for letting me get in on the fun.
The cover piece and my story revolve around Angkor Wat in Cambodia, a place that I intend to visit someday. I’ve been fascinated with Angkor Watt for sometime now, but I think it started with Illusion of Gaia, a video game that featured the ancient temple as a stage. I got that game as a kid and ever since then I’ve associated ancient civilizations with crazy adventures, a theme that I think informs my work today. I’ll have to go into the details of making the comic at a later date, but for now, enjoy!
For those of you who want to zip to my contribution, you can check it out here, although I seriously recommend you check out the whole thing.
