'The Rising'

This a cover for a comic book series I'm illustrating, doing the interiors fully painted..yhea I know I'm nuts :) lots of fun. It's for Radical comics you can read a synopsis below.

"After years of war, economic chaos, and mankind, itself, teetering on the verge of thermonuclear extinction, an alien force invades the planet. When a deadly virus is released, this militaristic empire massacres the world’s defense forces and most of the human population. The survivors are forced into slavery, helpless as they watch this new enemy plunder the remaining natural resources of Earth. Jarrett Jakes, chosen to fight and die as a gladiator, escapes from Zone R.X. 84 (formerly New York City) to lead a ragged band of guerrilla warriors in hopes of inspiring a downtrodden world to rise up against their alien oppressors."

Wow, that's pretty damned sweet and it'd be awesome to see a whole book painted by you. Be sure to let us know when it comes out!
