Girls and boys, here's a sample page of Incursion, my first full length comic book in the US market, published by Platinum Studios. This is the monthly book I've complained for taking over my life lately, but well, it's a good baptism of fire, I guess.

PLATINUM CAUGHT IN TWILIGHT THIS NOVEMBER
Incursion #1 Out Later This Month
LOS ANGELES, Calif., November 09, 2007 This November, Platinum Studios Comics (www.platinumstudioscomics.com) and Jay Busbee capture the gritty essence of sci-fi horror with the release of Incursion. Axel Medellin Machain, a two-time Top 50 Comic Book Challenge (www.comicbookchallenge.com) contestant, joins the Incursion creative team on pencils and inks.
The story opens deep in the battlefields of Afghanistan and culminates in a war-torn dimension known as Twilight. The four-issue series combines thrilling action with rugged humor as our heroes fight to save the souls of humanity. Our main characters, Sgt. Ray Montgomery and Dr. Rebecca Drake, are under constant pressure to make incredibly difficult decisions, says scripter Jay Busbee. Its been exciting to chart their path from disgrace to redemption as they traverse a warzone not of this world.
As the Editor-in-Chief of Arcana Comics and now VP of Publishing and Animation at Platinum Studios, Ive read many comics in my career, adds Sean OReilly. I am blown away by the visually stunning artwork in Incursion. With covers by Tone Rodriguez (Radioactive Man), Nei Ruffino (Return to Wonderland) on colors, and Axel Medellin Machain on pencils and inks, this team creates a distinctive visual style that will command the readers attention.
Girls and boys, this week at comic book shops and Comixology, Elephantmen 61, by Richard Starkings and Yours Truly. Yes, I admit the plot just advances a bit, but drawing those guys beating the crap out of each other is a blast.
So, girls and boys, this is what happens when I draw cute stuff... this is a homage to the 20th anniversary of Jeff Smith's Bone, art and color by yours truly. As it turns out, it was selected as the cover of this year's ever-useful, ever-present Events Guide at the San Diego Comicon. 130 thousand of these babies were printed. That's a lot of Bones...
