This past weekend I attended one of the top shows in the whole US of A, The Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle. I got the privilege of being a part of the Dark Horse Comics Panel where they announced several new comic series for the upcoming summer and fall, which included Power Cubed. (written and illustrated by me if you haven’t been reading my blogs)
So now that it is official I can release the logo and image for the 1st issue due out September of 2015.
As usual I did a few sketches to get an idea of what I wanted to do. Unfortunately I can’t show them to you because I can’t find them! Is it possible that I tossed them without scanning them? With me, anything is possible….
Here is the cover with the logo, anyway. For the record, I penciled, inked and colored this. I did a rough design of the logo and the pro’s at Dark Horse made it look good.
You may now be able to see one of the reasons I changed the name from Atomic Toybox to Power Cubed. I had this idea of how the logo would look and how it would be a neat little word play. Although, I am sure people will inevitably call it Power 3 instead of Power Cubed despite the obvious pronunciation clue of the 3 inside a cube! I have already heard the nickname “P3” being used, which I actually kind of like.
Right now I am halfway through penciling the second issue and should have it completed by the end of April. As a reminder, I have brought in Mark Morales to ink issue #’s 2 and 3 so the series will get out on time.
Bye for now!
