TAINTED ENOUGH TO SHOW OUT--PART ONE OF FIVE




Hey....
YOU.
Look at that.
Right above me.

Isn't that the coolest reader you've ever seen for a blog?

I thought it would be a great showcase to show some work that i feel a year and a half of mismanagement from some that have no idea how to pimp their mistresses may mess up if no one ever gets to see it.

And that's me...ever the spoiler.

This is Tainted.

Or what was supposed to be the mega mini that was supposed to come out through Big City Comics.

No longer in existence.

Oh..

I could go on and on about how mad i was enough to spit......
Tainted enough with the president and owner of that company to make me wanna show out.

But i'm a different man now.
With loftier goals.
Why spend all my finger strength smacking keys on a keyboard talking about
people who don't ever get it when i can just show you the work that no one will ever see.

and the best work that that owner will EVER get.

EVER.

.....anyway.....

I discovered that instead of telling people about the work i did for the "small guy", i thought it would be better if i just showed you. James Brown is the colorist on this mini.. and he did such a great job, it's just an injustice that no one would see it.

Not even one.

So i'm putting out the whole thing.


All of the black and white pages.
all of the colors.

No dialogue.

Trust me...

You don't want to read anything that Jeff Kaufman wrote.

I'm doing you a favor.

It was enough for me trying to draw it.

You shouldn't need to be brained with a sock full of pennies.

Just click onto the reader and another page will open full sized.
and you can see the details.

Just like i did when i had to work with Kaufman.

If you look hard enough, The Devil is there.

Looks awesome, Cross. I'm sorry the whole thing imploded, as it sounded like it might have been cool.

Yeah... what can you do? Just look at it, commiserate and continue with the next gig. But i still want people to see what i did, and at least with this blog, i'll get some satisfaction out of it. Thanks for commenting, Andrea.
