Invincible Universe #12 to Nightcrawler #1

April 2nd, 2014 No comments

invincibleuniverse_12Invincible 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.

NIGHTCRAWLER #1 preview pages

March 13th, 2014 No comments

NIGHTCRAWLER #1 preview! Issue #1 on sale April 9th.

This April, an X-Men legend returns. Prolific and iconic X-Men writer Chris Claremont teams with fan favorite artist Todd Nauck for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – a swashbuckling new ongoing series that’s sure to have everyone talking!

“He’s smart, tough, creative and daring, with an instinctive understanding of people and situations. He has a wicked sense of humor and a devastating charm,” says Claremont, in an interview with “His ‘normal’ is revolutionary to most people; throw him a problem, he’ll find a way to solve it that’s unique to him. He quite simply is the kind of man others trust; to know him is to have faith in him.”

When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind, a hole was left in the X-Men’s ranks that has never been filled. With his recent resurrection in the pages of Amazing X-Men, Kurt Wagner has returned to a world far different from the one he left behind. Charles Xavier is dead. Scott Summers is on the run. Even Wolverine, his closest friend, has changed, becoming the headmaster of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. And though a deep schism divides the X-Men, Kurt Wagner isn’t going to waste one minute of his new lease on life.

Now, Nightcrawler is hitting the road, eager to right some wrongs and help safeguard the future of mutantkind. And he’s going to do it the only way he knows how: swashbuckling, lady-charming, and of course BAMFing!

Don’t miss the start of a brand new adventure as Nightcrawler and Chris Claremont make their triumphant return to the X-Men for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – teleporting its way into comic shops this April!
