“This is a really easy way to score some original artwork,” said writer Shane Houghton. “Chris generously gives me a page after we complete an issue, and I tell you, nothing keeps you warmer in the winter than original artwork.”
Artist Chris Houghton humbly added: “This is a page from the first issue. If Reed Gunther ever gets as big as one of those caped superheroes, just think of how much that’ll bring in for you! We’re basically giving you your retirement fund!”
Creators Shane and Chris Houghton are excited to help their fans spread the word about the upcoming REED GUNTHER #1 and to encourage local comic shops to explore this new Image Comics book full of all-ages adventure and fun.
REED GUNTHER #1 (APR110403), a 32-page full color all-ages western comedy for $2.99, will come galloping full speed into a comic store near you on June 1, 2011.
