Blackwood #2 out today



Blackwood #2 is on the stands today; in it you'll find my favorite two-headed, reanimated animal sidekick Chimp Ho Tep, a reference to Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein, the Women of the Well and lots of other cool stuff.  The school on the grave etching is taken from a real abandoned elementary school, which at the moment is being turned into condos.  I bet there are some ghosts still walking around in there.

Here is what the art for #2 looks like on paper, which was done on old Archie stock I had laying around.  Below that is the back cover to #2 which holds a peek into Dennis's backstory.  The church reference was taken from a photo of an abandoned abbey and the runes do mean something but I forget now.

I do remember that I was listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History while inking these, so when I look at them again I can hear him talking about bloody pain-fo-tainment in the Roman Colosseum, yeesh.
