And speaking of webcomics...
Here you have the cover of one of the man I'm illustrating, which went live last week: Flight of the Binturong
Written by Sal Crivelli
), drawn by me and colored by the amazing Pedro Figue
, Flight of the Binturong is described thus by Sal: "IT'S THE FUTURE.
But don’t worry. A lot’s still the same.
No evil Empire. No oppressive theocracy. No galactic struggle. The government’s too bureaucratic for all that noise.
The Binturong is a mechanic ship with a crew of four. In the heyday of interstellar repairs, if your ship needed fixing, rigs like The Binturong would come to you, make repairs, and send you on your way. Nowadays, newer ships (along with most technology made in the last few years) have self-diagnosing AI that assesses, isolates, and self-repairs. It makes for safer, further space travel (and longer unemployment lines).
Flight of the Binturong is a once-a-week comic, which will update every Tuesday.
Inspired by the works of James Cameron, John Carpenter, and Joss Whedon, we’re hoping to bring you a comic that invokes that old feeling of cool, gritty space, while hopefully taking you on some new, exciting adventures."
This project came together under the tutelage and experience of OUTLAND Entertainment
and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. It is rare that I let someone else color my drawings, but my scheduling didn't allow for me to take over those duties, so I trusted Jer would find someone to do an amazing job. And he did, of course! Pedro's hues and painterly style are very simple, yet poignant and striking. And most important of all, it respects my style and enhances it whilst still making an impression of its own.
Sal's script is riddled with familiar places, yet still feels frash and original and there's a great sense of lived-in universe that I think makes this webcomic a hell of a ride!
