Omega The More Known Than Previously

A long time in gestation, the first issue is finally out.

"Omega the Unknown" ( a reprisal of a character first brought to the world by "Howard the Duck" creator Steve Gerber), will be a monthly, ten part series, written by Jonathan Lethem and drawn by Farel Dalrymple, with me providing coloring (some of which is above) and a tiny bit of drawing for a certain part of the story. Another artist will be making an appearance in there is as well (one of the people I would vote most unlikely to be doing a mainstream published comic), but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to mention his name. But if I am, it's Gary Panter.

It's been (and continues to be) an honor to work with Jonathan, Farel, and Gary in producing what I think can easily be appraised as one of the most atypical Marvel comics to come along in a long time. Hopefully we don't all get stoned to death at the next San Diego Comic Con.

Do I need to say the pages are insane and insanely good? No, I don't. But they are. It'll be worth the wait.
