story MARK EVANIER
art & cover WILL MEUGNIOT

MARK EVANIER and WILL MEUGNIOT ‘s DNAGENTS may well have been the prototype for today’s comic book industry. Not only was it released through one of the first independent publishers, not only was it creator-owned, but it was prescient in its use of genetic manipulation to create superpowers and its setting in the halls of an evil multi-national corporation! Award-winning television writer/producer, EVANIER and acclaimed animation producer/director, MEUGNIOT were clearly ahead of the curve and DNAGENTS remains one of the most fondly remembered books of the 1980s!

    In issue six of BombQueen The Divine Comedy towards the end of the issue, my characters Nash and Kyle show up and get an autograph from the Queen. I met Jimmy at Comic Con this last year and gave him copies of my book, Youth in Asia. He liked it enough to keep to his promise he made me then to put them in the final issue of the arc. Nash is the shirtless guy with pigtails and a red cross tattoo on his chest and Kyle is the girl standing behind him with the camo bikini top on and the purple hair.
