Hellblazer

The issues of Hellblazer I did with Paul Jenkins twenty years ago are being collected at last. The first collection is out now, and the next will be out in January with a new cover by me...
Here's the some in progress process shots of the first Hellblazer cover I've painted since 1998. After doing a couple of digital sketches in Manga Studio, I got my paints out and did the final painting in acrylics on illustration board. The painting in about 45cm tall.

It's 1976, and Teeg Lawless is doing 30 days in county jail with a price on his head, his only safe company from the savagery a beat-up old comic magazine his dead cellmate left behind. It's CRIMINAL like you've never seen it before, with a comic within the comic and all those slick ‘70s thrills!

The bestselling crime series returns to print in strikingly-designed new editions from Image, starting where it all began: CRIMINAL, VOL. 1: COWARD—a new take on noir that turned the heist story on its head and created a whole new underworld for BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS to explore.

"Brubaker and Phillips' books have always been about eight years ahead of their time." —Brian K. Vaughan
