Sneak Peek

Well... I finally decided that you've ALL been so supportive and inspiring to me, that it was time that I ought to show you a little sneak peek of some Agent Orange pages.
The first two are from a test that I did, just to figure out timing (How quick I could get a page done from start to finish). The third image is the first page from Volume One.

ALSO, you might like to know... AGENT ORANGE will be making his FIRST printed appearance to the public in POPGUN: VOLUME 4! Published by Image Comics. Hoooray!!! The awesome guys putting the book together got a hold of me and asked me if I'd like to contribute to the book. I had to think about it of course... for about 2 seconds. So keep yer eyes out for it my friends, and I'll keep you up dated on the work, and the release date for the book!
