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!

Invincible Universe 12 is on sale today.
Unfortunately, it is the last issue of Invincible Universe. I’ve had a great time working with Phil Hester, Sean Mackiewicz, Rus Wooten, Gabe Eltaeb, Andy Troy, John Rauch, Sina Grace, and of course, creator Robert Kirkman, along with the rest of the amazing Skybound crew. I have been reading Invincible since issue #1, so when Robert invited me to draw this companion series (originally entitled Guarding the Globe Vol 2), it was an easy decision to make!
This series has been a lot of fun to draw and I learned how to pencil/ink a series on a monthly basis.
I definitely have enjoyed the 2 years I got to work with these characters and contribute to Robert’s superhero universe. And even though, Invincible Universe has come to an end (at least for the time being), I’m still considered a part of the Skybound family and appreciate all the friends I have made there!
As one story ended, another began.
I recieved a call from Marvel asking if I was available for a new project and interested in drawing a new X-Men spin-off series. Having read X-Men since I was 13 years old, I of course said “Yes!”. I started to work on a new Nightcrawler solo series written by legendary X-Men writer, Chris Claremont. I started reading Uncanny X-Men during the Claremont years and Nightcrawler has been a longtime favorite X-Men of mine. So this series is a dream-come-true project for me.
Nightcrawler #1 is on sale next Wednesday, April 9th.
