Extra Sequential #4 - article


Extra Sequential #4, the latest and (sadly) final issue of the fantastic comic-related magazine, has been released online and is available to download for free right now. The issue contains a number of varied and interesting articles, interviews with high-profile creators such as Mike Deodato Jr. and Matt Fraction and also an early look at Nicodemus Flynn with commentary from Robin and me regarding the story, the characters, the artwork and the inspiration behind the whole thing.

It's a great magazine that's well worth checking out and you can download it from:

I'd like to thank Kris Bather and everyone else at Extra Sequential for the article. You can find their website at:

Character design - May

This is May Marsden, one of the key characters of the story. Robin tried out a few different designs before he came up with this one, which was the design that we settled on for a while. Eventually, however...

...that changed and this became May's final design. We wanted an outfit for her that was practical but still looked pretty cool and stylish, and I think Robin has done a great job in that respect.

First post - teaser artwork

Here's a piece of artwork drawn by Robin and coloured by Robert that was used for promotion at the 2009 Long Beach Comic-Con. Great work as ever by the boys.

Here's a page from the opening scene of the story, showing Nick doing what he does best.

And finally, this is an early cover drawn by Robin. I love the image of Nick and the skull, along with the general composition of the cover.
