The Walking Dead variant cover 164
My variant cover for Walking Dead 164 came out last week. It's an homage to Jim Lee's Wild CATS issue 1 cover. I was a huge geek for the beginning of Image comics so I was happy to contribute to a 25th anniversary tribute cover. 

REBORN 2 variant cover
My pleasure doing a cover for the amazing Mark Millar and Greg Capullo's new Image book REBORN. This issue came out this week.
INVINCIBLE Triptych cover
3 covers for issues 124, 125, and 126. These three issues were some of the most fun I've had making comics in a while.
  For those that haven't heard the news. The comic book that I've been doing art duties on for the last 13 years, Invincible, written by Robert Kirkman, is coming to an end. There are many reasons for this, but for me, it started last year when I told Robert I'd like to move on to other projects, I felt it was time to do other things. Robert said he also has been thinking about ending the book, so he asked that I stay on to finish the run. I told him I needed a break and so Cory Walker, the original series artist said he'd step in to help out, he is currently doing a 6 issue run, then I'll be back on for the remaining 12 issues starting in February 2017. 

  Fans have expressed to me mixed feelings about it all. Some are happy that it won't go the way of the big two and continue on in mediocrity, that it'll end while it's still great. Others are very disappointed and want to punch us in our faces. One of the most common questions people ask me is "Are you going to stay on the book forever?" I'd always answer with a happy "Hell yes! I love this book! why leave?!" I am currently drawing my 120th issue of Invincible, I still love the series, I know for a fact I'm going to miss it, but I just finally feel that drive to do something else. I have options, I've had offers, but I haven't chosen anything yet. Still have 12 issues left, no time to worry about future right now. But I will figure something out! So thank you for all who is concerned. I hope you check out the end of the series, because we are going out strong, and it'll be a great send off to our 144 issue love letter to superhero comics.

Robert has a video below that you just gotta watch! As usual, explains things so much more eloquently than I do.
