Bat-Pool.  That pretty much says it all right there.

Deadpool vs Saint George

"Deadpool definitely, definitely, definitely, doesn’t have the power of Jesus on his side"

Check out this interview I did over at Bleeding Cool, where I talk about my work on Saint George, Deadpool: The Gauntlet, and digital comics.

Here’s a brief look at the process of making an Infinite Comic with this bit from Deadpool: The Gauntlet #13

The first step is my rough storyboards.  These are quick, low-res drawings in Photoshop that I use to pace out the chapter, and figure out the layout for each shot. This is the phase where all the planning takes place, and my main goal is to figure out the storytelling (since this was just a title page, there’s not much actual “storytelling, but you get the point).

The second step is penciling.  I usually lightbox right over printouts of the storyboards, which helps me maintain the energy of the rough drawings. 

Third, I send the pencils off to the inker, in this case Terry Pallot. 

Fourth is the colors from Jim Campbell. 

In the final step is where Joe Sabino puts down his letters, and where we’d finally be able to see Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn’s words if this wasn’t simply a title and credits page. 

It’s fun to put these images side by side to see how we get from my crappy thumbnails to the well-polished final image.  Unfortunately it takes a lot more time and effort to actually make a scene like this than it does to make a Tumblr post!

Deadpool and Shiklah at the end of The Gauntlet

This series has been a hell of a ride, and I want to thank all the fans out there who were willing to give this whole digital thing a try, along with all the new storytelling possibilities that came along with it. We’ve been getting great reviews, and every chapter’s got a 5-star rating on Comixology— seriously, I’m floored! 

It’s been a real learning experience, and I can’t wait to use what I learned here on the next digital comic that I do.  Possibly more Power Play?  Plans are still up in the air, but we’ll see! 

I want to give a big shout out to my fellow creators on this series—
Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn for putting together such a fun yarn and for continuing to kick ass over in Deadpool’s regular print series.

Nelson DeCastro and Terry Pallot for their amazing inking skills— seriously, one of these days those dudes are going to have to teach me to do that properly!

Jim Charalampidis and Jim Campbell for their kick-ass colors, and for really diving into the whole digital thing to make this series fly.  This series was an entirely different animal than a regular comic, and the Jims definitely stepped up to the task. 

Joe Sabino also had to learn to grapple with the digital beast.  Lettering can really make or break a digital comic like this, and Joe really came through for us issue after issue.

I want to give a HUGE thanks to Khary Randolph and Scott Koblish for helping me out on the art when deadlines started to get hectic.  Those guys totally saved my ass and really helped this series look great.

And none of us would have been able to do any of this if it wasn’t for our editor Jordan White keeping the ship afloat, and believing in this project enough to let us get away with so much of the crazy crap that we did.  

I hope everyone had as much fun with The Gauntlet as I did, and are as happy with the results. 
I’m not sure what my own next project will be, whether print or digital, corporate or creator owned, but I’ll certainly mention it here when I figure that out. 
Talk to you guys later!

Deadpool vs Dracula.  It all comes down to this!

It’s lucky chapter 13 of Deadpool: The Gauntlet, and it’s a perfect jumping on point, because it’s, like, all the cool climactic stuff but without any of that annoying back story, or character development crap that we wasted time on in the previous chapters.  Also the perfect jumping off point, seeing as how it’s the final chapter. 

So, basically, if you’ve been waiting in the wings for the best opportunity to read exactly one issue of Deadpool: The Gauntlet… Now’s your time to shine.
