Coming at some point from Action Age Comics!
The Chronicles of Solomon Stone!
Some of you may be wondering how I got such a prime gig like this, well the answer's simple. I've been a fan of Mr Sims' Blog for few years now and then one day he beat me up in an alley and carved his name backwards into my forehead...
This is pretty common practice in the comics industry. I believe it was Stan Lee who first originated the concept back in the Marvel bull-pen.

"Hi my names Peter Parker and I have really terrible life. When I was only a lowly scientific genius, a freak accident gave me a number of incredible super-powers that let me perform the most amazing feats. If that wasn't bad enough there's these two models who really want to have sex with me and they're both so super-hot that I can't decide which one to choose. Man my life sucks. You should buy either the top selling comic book or the record breaking block-buster movie that I star in to hear me whine about all these problems."
I picked up the latest issue of Jonah Hex the other day and Jordi Bernet's art inspired to draw some pretty girls. Still working on that loose inking thing.
I'm not sure why they have such tiny hands.

Waaaoooooh waaaah waaaaah waaaaaoooooooh waaaah waaaaaah etc.
Describing Avatar: The Last Airbender as the best American action/drama cartoon since Batman: The Animated Series sounds a little like I'm damning it with false praise, so I'll just say that's really, really, good on a number of levels and you should check it out if you haven't already.

I was reading the very enjoyable 'Jews with Swords' adventure novel Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon and was suitably inspired to draw this. Oh, many are the times I've longed to find my way to a tavern, to rest my weary feet in the orange glow of a roaring fire. A busty tavern wench bringing me a fine frothing ale, a suggestive look in her eye as she passes me the tankard...
Sorry got a bit carried away there. I also wanted to try inking in a faster and less precise way to try to get a bit more personality into my stuff. I was particularly inspired by a new comic artist I've found called Denis Bodart there's probably a bit of Mignola to it as well.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm going back to my wench fantasy...
Shut up, that's why
