45 by cakes 45 by cakes
So, a few ago, I posted a tiny bit of my page I did for the GN Forty-Five. Now here's the page in full glory.
*insert choral embellishment*

To read a description of the book or pre-order it, head on over to amazon: [link]

My "super" is Whisper, who can puppet other peoples' bodies without their knowledge.

My page doesn't read as a regular sequential comic page. It's more of a collage built around the central figures. It makes much more sense with the accompanying text.
I wish I had outlined those central figures in beige so that they stand out where they overlap the other panels.
Also, firetrucks are hard.

Hope you guys dig.
The book is set to be released in December. It'll be available through Diamond as well. So pick it up if the concept intrigues you and you want to see 44 other pages of awesome art.

Just to let you know - as creator/writer on '45' I'm going to be at the Long Beach Comic con on the 3rd October - so if you are around come by the Com.x booth to say hello... might even be signing a few Com.x goodies.

Best

Very unique setup-- it makes readability really interesting, and readable even without text.
Also, I like the Art Deco-ish styling of Whisper:nod:

It's an amazing piece! Once again!
But, the eyes seem a little dead to me...
They don't really seem alive or even looking at anybody...
But besides that I really think it's gorgeous!
