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:
