Elektra #1

Monday, January 13, 2014

Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

It looks like Elektra is getting her own series. I got to do this variant cover to help promote the launch. As for my own project, I'm 45% of the way through the script (with the whole thing plotted). If this weren't such a gargantuan undertaking, I might try doing it "Marvel Style" — just a loose page-by-page plot — but I want to be able to hand it to my writer friends for (vicious) critiques.

Last week I stopped by the Image Expo after-party to catch up with friends and colleagues. I have to say they've got a great line-up of creators. I hope to be part of the mix some day.

Lastly, I've consolidated the links at the top of the blog. You can now find a large collection of my work under the Gallery link.


  1. That cover is spectacular. I love the flat colors.

  2. Thanks, guys! This was the first time I've gotten to draw her for Marvel.

    1. You drew Daredevil, now you drew Elektra, now you gotta draw both of them together!

    2. I'll see what I can do. I did a commission of them together way back in 2004... I'd say I'm due for another.
