He did at one point work for Image (Jim Lee's Co.) and when I dig on-line a bit I see him aping Lee's style (as many there did) but I don't much like his super hero work (he didn't either!). He eventually left to do things like Weapon of the Metabarons, but was too ambitious and wanted to paint every interior page only discover he was too slow for production work. This comic strip is clearly a passion project and shows him at his next-level best (sans deadline). The inking skill and use of light and shadow is phenomenal in all his later work. The earlier superhero stuff...not so much.I've got a few of his comics in the old collection.

Thanks! It's a little funky having started out as a scribble in the margins of my graph paper (pencil, then ink, then white gel pen), but something about the body-language in the pose hooked my eye so I cut it out digitally and filled the background in black. It's so late-eighties-independent-comic-cover to my brain. A happy accident. I'm tickled that someone else digs it.I like this one a lot
