One of my favorite team books. Especially the original series.

Glad the team is back together again (except for Wolfsbane). Great to see Abnett and Lanning writing the series now.

Did this piece for fun a few months back. Was considering making a print of it.

Sketch Card: Cannonball

May 2nd, 2011 1 comment

Back when I was in high school, my favorite comic books series was New Mutants. I had a mail subscription to the series because we didn’t have a comic shop in my small East Texas town at the time.

Cannonball was a character I could relate to: tall, gangly, goofy looking, unsure of himself, and Southern. I really liked that when he “blasted” into the air he could only fly straight. Turning was his weakness. It was fun to watch this character mature, learn how to control his mutant abilities (i.e. turn!), and grow into a leader. Glad to have him back leading his fellow New Mutants again.
