Marvel has just officially announced the new Nightcrawlerseries I’ll be drawing and it is written by legendary X-Men writer, Chris Claremont!
Claremont’s Uncanny X-Men #193 was the first issue that started me on my path to being a regular comic collector… And an X-Men fan! I grew up reading Chris Claremont’s X-Men (and X-Men related comics).
So now getting to draw one of my all-time favorites, Nightcrawler, on a monthly basis is a childhood dream come true!
I got the call from Marvel editor, Daniel Ketchum, offering me the series around the holidays. I’ve felt like a kid on Christmas morning ever since!
Here are some of my initial character studies I have been working on to getting an even better feel for these characters. I’ve been referencing my favorite Nightcrawler artists: Dave Cockrum, John Byrne, Paul Smith, Art Adams, Alan Davis, etc. as well was what my pal, Ed McGuinness, has been doing with Nightcrawler in Amazing X-Men, to honor what has been done with the fuzzy blue elf as well as put my own flavor on it.
