MADAME XANADU original art

For those keeping track, Madame Xanadu #20 goes on sale this Wednesday, and we have also started posting the pencil artwork online. I don't have scans for every page yet, but we have most of #19 up now, and we'll post a good portion of #20 by the end of the week, once people have had a chance to read the issue.

- note: all the pages are for sale, even if you don't see the scans yet. Drop a line if you don't see your favorite.

The pages were all drawn on DC art board at the regular 11" X 17" size. The pencils were then scanned and inked on blueline printout. This means I have all the original pencil art still intact, and this is what we will be selling. Hence, our reasons for posting them: so you can see what you're going to get.

A couple of favorite pages:

Done for the same couple who previously got the 12 Reasons/Blankets piece. Note the return of those comics in the picture frames.

The New York Times just ran an article about Janet Evanovich bringing her material and the characters from the Barnaby books to Dark Horse. I am currently pencilling her book Troublemaker, co-written by Alex Evanovich. Read about it here.

This is the promo image they released to go with it:

What the Times fail to tell you that the art is inked by the wonderful Andy Owens and colored by the equally wonderful Dan Jackson.

The book will be out this summer.

(By the way, this is not the book I showed art from yesterday.)
