i'm searched high and low for catwoman vol 3 issue 57 (to those of you not paying attention, the follow up issue to this one, with adam hughes as the cover artist.)
the reason behind searching high and low for issue no 58 was my love for zatanna working with zatanna (for those of you interested in getting issue 58, it's nowhere to be found on the internet... anywhere, BUT there is hope: if you look for catwoman, book 5: the replacements, you can get vol 3 issue 57 and 58, hopefully including the fantastic covers of mister adam hughes.)
anyway, since i bought the catwoman book 5: the replacements... i think that's right, don't quote me on that... gosh my memory is rubbish. however, i gave my copy, that i found in a favorite comic shop in levittown, PA (i'm from rydal, PA, in case you're wondering how far and wide your fans are), to a very good friend/general partner in crime, doug (he's on deviantart, and is the reason i know about your amazing work: his handle on DA is douggiedoo.deviantart.com) if you're curious.
thanks for creating such beautiful cover work! next to pascal campion and abigail larson (neither of whom are comic artists, that i know of), i follow you closely, so whenever there's new work, i'm always excited!
and when i save up for it, i can't wait to buy your book that has all of your cover art.
Lone Wolf! That's cool! I saw this reference when they procure that comment. He knew his work in PowerGirl and Wonder Woman. But now I became a fan. I have been at least 1 hour looking at your gallery. You're an excellent artist. If you came in RioComicon would be great! Sorry my Googlish.
so pleased I found this on DA! really enjoyed it in whichever edition of Spectrum I saw it in (they all run together somehow, I don't remember which one had this). I think it's the expressions. I keep looking back at it
The cover is a take-off on the classic LONE WOLF & CUB characters. In CATWOMAN, Selina had a baby, so when I handed in the cover sketch for this issue (which was a different idea), I also sent a gag sketch of Selina in a bathrobe (which looks like samurai robes) holding a spoon (where the handle of a samurai's sheathed katana would be) and her baby in a stroller (the baby in LONE WOLF was usually depicted in a pram or cart). I just did it as a gag, but the CATWOMAN editor LOVED it, and they made me draw the joke cover.
Again - NOT MY IDEA.
Lesson learned: NEVER send in a gag sketch you aren't prepared to do as a full cover....
