I have a tight deadline looming (day's end, Sunday) for my entry in the upcoming Jungle Tales of Tarzan graphic novel anthology from Dark Horse. Had to skip drawing both Rex and Phantom this week to stay on track, and will be doubling my workload on both strips to get back on schedule with them come next week (yikes!) -- but that's the life of a freelancer.
Here's an itty bitty teaser of four of the twelve pages of The Lion, adapted by Martin Powell from the Edgar Rice Burroughs story. Shown small here so you can get a hint of it, but not read it. C'mon -- we want you to buy the book, y'know! Color palette sampled from vintage comics to evoke a certain nostalgic response. Copyright, trademark and all rights reserved by ERB, Inc. and all that jazz.
Time to hit the drawing board -- I probably need to ink three Tarzan pages today to keep up. Kreegah!!!
