What did you think?

Casanova 6 came out. Did you read it? What did you think?

Edited to add: Khepri customers have shown the love for Casanova 2 and 5 last week. If you can't find your copy at your comic book store, Brian at Khepri will send it to you with a super discount.

Casanova 6 this... hum... wednesday.

When I lose completely the notion of different days of the week and realize my Sunday looks like my Tuesday, I wonder if I wouldn't be better off becoming a dentist.

Or a farmer.

Or an astronaut.

Anyway, somebody pointed me to this online preview of Casanova 6. Our copies already arrived, so I've seen the entire issue, but this baby will be on stores this Wednesday. Check it out.

I guess suddenly you discover that this cover of issue 6 and that pencilled page from issue 7 have something in common.

Pencilled page from Casanova 7 by Gabriel Ba.

We've been kidnapped by work. You can also say we were just grounded from the internet until our jobs are done. Yes, that would be more accurate.

But we're coming back.

It's like she's looking at me and complaining about when will I draw her again.

"When will I have another story?"

"When will I have another adventure?"

I ask myself the same questions every other day, which means it will probably happen sooner rather than later.

Hopefully, next year.

The first Umbrella

My brother and I are used to do all parts of the process ourselves, from the beginning to the end of a story. It has not been long since we started working on projects with other people, playing just one role, like just the artist. I like to see myself of a creator, specially because I'm working on projects that have just begun and I will help build the entire universes of these stories.

Two weeks ago, Scott Allie wrote me to see if we could do something for the release of new album from My Chemical Romance, since I will be drawing the lead singer Gerard Way's new comicbook, The Umbrella Academy.

It was supposed to be only one drawing showing maybe two of the characters, but they had the bold idea of doing a 2 page story. It was a good thing to see the first scripts of this story, and how it is different from the Casanova scripts Matt sends me. It was much more lose and light, so I think the art could do a lot of breathing, even though it is just a 2 pages story.

Anyway, I am glad it is finally starting to happen and a new step on our way has just been given. And it is funny that is happened today, on the day of the dead, which I think has a lot to do with the band and it's thing. The images shown here are from this story, that you can see online here, with the press release.
