Next Issue Project

Here's the cover to Next Issue Project #1. It came out three weeks ago. This is one of the coolest comics I've ever seen, let alone been involved with. Everyone reading this should go out and buy five copies! With contributions by Erik Larsen, Joe Casey, Bill Sienkiewicz, Mike Allred, Ashley Wood and many more including you're humble blogger, this book is all killer, and no filler! Here's what Erik Larsen has to say about it....

"Now, I’m not one to toot my own horn. I really have tried to use this space to do something other than plug my own stuff. Sure, I could rattle on at length about "Savage Dragon" each and every column or plug various books, but my thought was to talk to fans as a fan rather than as a publisher. If I want to plug Image Comics (and they’re certainly worth plugging) there are places where I can do that. But I can’t help myself. This comic book is awesome."

If you can't believe the books publisher, who can you believe?
i was trying to find some of my roughs for this story but i think i threw out all my preliminary work...OOPS!
Take my word, and Eriks word for it, this book is great! If you don't know, now you know

Pages 1, and 6, of my Next Issue Project story
I'm having trouble uploading the colorfiles,
but I'll get it figured out eventually!

I've always really liked your stuff. Didn't you do this one book for IDW...I can't remember. A friend showed it to me once and I loved it. It was real dark . I tried looking it up on your bibliography but I didn't see it on there.

Anyway, awesome work. I love the storytelling on Brit. Great stuff dude!

Thanks for the kind words. The book you're thinking of is called EASY WAY. It was a four issue crime story that came out from IDW about three years ago.

Hey Andy, I loved this book and agree that everyone should buy a copy (or two). Do you know if there are any plans to do any more of these?

By the way, I really enjoy your art, and I'm glad you've started the blog. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the kind words. i'm a huge fan of your work. I think that Erik Larsen plans to do more but it'll prolly be on an annual or twice a year schedule. He told me that putting it together was like trying to herd housecats. If you're interested in doing a story for it, you should contact him.

Hey Andy,

Great artwork as always ;)

I still have the Mutt you drew for me at the ASH con all those years ago.

I just read this last night, always great to see your name (and Fantastic Comics is just an all around great package). Glad to hear about some new Firebreather, too!
