On Friday, March 27, 2015, one (1) “retweeter” of that tweet will be randomly chosen to win this Amazing X-Men #1 sketch cover art piece (autographed and personalized to the winner).
And since this is our last issue, I wanted take a moment to say a few things about working on this comic.
I hope you have enjoyed our run on this series. Nightcrawler is one of my favorite X-Men. It meant a lot to me to have this opportunity to draw his adventures for the past year. It was an enormous honor getting to work with X-Men writing legend, Chris Claremont. I started reading his work on Uncanny X-Men when I was a teenager.
Thank you, Chris, for writing some super fun stories for me to illustrate as well as being so complimentary of my work. It’s been cool getting to spend time with you this past year.
My thanks to my editors, Daniel Ketchum and Xander Jaworey (as well as Nick Lowe who was still in the X-Office at the time this series was coming together), for this amazing opportunity and all their investment of time and guidance in this series and my art.
My utmost appreciation to colorist, Rachelle Rosenberg, who not only delivered top notch colors but was so easy and friendly to work with. Especially with all my little color notes! And to VC’s Cory Petit and Joe Sabino, thank you for hooking this book up with super sweet lettering!
And, finally, my thanks to all of you who took the time and put your hard earned dollars towards this series. I hope you had as much fun reading this series as we had creating it!
Good luck with this last Nightcrawler art giveaway! And I hope you enjoy our series finale!
