This is one of the busiest non Major Spoilers related work week for me, and I’ve been a bit lax in getting the Art Appreciation Moment of the Day posted.  I’m making it up to you today with four entries from Mitch Gerads, Evan Shaner, Chris Samnee, and Francesco Francavilla. The theme is Lone Wolf and Cub, which just so happens to be our next book up for discussion on the Major Spoilers Podcast.

Mitch Gerads

Another one of those hugely influential books for me. Much like Nexus, I remember the Frank Miller reprint books lying around my brother’s bedroom, so obviously “2nd Grader + Samurais + Blood= flipped through every single one of them.”

This whole cycle has been full of characters I’ve only been aware of peripherally but really interested in reading. Lone Wolf and Cub is no different. This was a blast to work on, great pick Dan!

I’m a big fan of the book. Thought I would do something a bit different with the inks this week and went a bit looser and brushier. Hope ya dig it!

    Off the back of these “twarts”, Phil Hester yesterday posted a LW&C sketch he’d done, which I really dig:
