Mercury & the Murd - Issue #5 Cover! (Inks anyway...)
When I went to the CGS SuperShow in Reading, PA back in early September, I was fortunate enough to meet Shawn Pryor, the owner of PKD Media, a small indie comic book publisher. He is the creator, writer, mastermind, pr genius, and all around nice guy of his two series, Mercury and the Murd, and Exo-1 and the Rock Solid Steel-Bots. Anyway, Shawn saw some of the sketches I had done, and asked me if I would do a cover for an upcoming issue of Mercury and the Murd. I was extremely flattered and terrified, but I said I'd give it a crack. So, here's my final inks for the cover to issue #5. The image was very much inspired by the poster to Clint Eastwood's 1973 film Magnum Force. It's going to be colored by an associate of Shawn's, so hopefully I'll be able to post that, too, once it's done. Shawn's a super nice guy, and a consumate professional, so be kind and go to his website, and buy his books!!!
