so now that issue 2 of PERHAPANAUTS: Danger Down Under! has been solicited in Previews, we can reveal to you here the super-freakin' awesome cover that our pal, JOE STATON, was kind enough to do for us!
i've been friends with joe for a number of years now--he and his enchanting wife, Hilarie, live nearby and are part of our "family" get-togethers every couple of months up here in the mid-hudson valley. as with many of my friends, i have to bite my tongue before becoming a complete slobbering fanboy, gushing about this comic book cover or that story. joe has created SO MANY iconic and well-loved covers over the years, that craig and i feel especially honored that he would spend some time with our 'haps!
joe has worked on so many of your favorites, that it'd make your head explode just to think about it!
e-man, the hulk, the justice society, green lantern, batman, scooby-doo...the list goes on...!
and joe is currently gracing the pages of that legendary comic strip character, DICK TRACY, available in many newspapers across the country..and available to YOU as a daily subscription--there's nothing cooler than having a dose of crime busters show up in your email every morning!--through www.gocomics.com!
thanks so much, joe~!
you've made a dream of ours come true!
more on friday!
smell ya later!
PS--man, i was so stoked to present the great joe cover--and so very tired--i wrote this in the middle of the night--that i completely forgot to give credit to the wonderful colorist on this gorgeous piece--our own NATE LOVETT!!!
so SO sorry, nate---you did a phenomenal job and i can't believe i dropped the ball here!
thank you so much!
nate is also coloring the stories by lauren monad-gramprey and eric henson throughout the series and doing an amazing job with it!
thanks again, nate--and sorry...
