THE VALIANT #2 PAGE 15. 2015.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

The Valiant trade paperback comes out next week, so I thought it might be a good time to look back at a page from issue 2. In this scene, Ninjak really cuts loose — only to have his bum thoroughly handed to him. As you can see from the pencils, I changed where he was looking in the first panel... he wasn't angry enough!

I also wanted to mention that this page (and many others from The Valiant) are now available through my art dealer, Splashpage Art. Covers are listed separately. And even if you're not interested in purchasing, we've got nice big scans of the originals, pencils by me and inks by my dad, Joe Rivera. Hope you enjoy the closer look.

True assassins use paper tubes.
