NEW WARRIORS #12
CHRISTOPHER YOST (W)
MARCUS TO (A)
Cover by STACEY LEE
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

My debut cover for Marvel.  It was a rather quick turnaround but I’m quite happy with the experience.  Sadly, I knew the cover was for the final issue, so I used the opportunity to draw the heroes awash in sunset to signify the end of their story.  At the same time, they look on as if to show them looking ahead toward their potential futures.  

Also the broken billboard is an ode to Takeshi Miyazawa’s cover for issue 7, where Speedball is seen having painted “WARRIORS WANTED” on a billboard.  Not only do I enjoy that image, but since the series is coming to an end, it seemed fitting to have that sign present, but no longer intact.   

The final issue hits stands in November, feel free to check it out!
