Hey Darick, you couldn't tell us if any development on Kurt's brothers is going to pop up that you know of, could you? In Uncanny the Draco arc just sort of ended with Kurt going "Gosh, they sure are great" and Abyss and Kiwi Black promptly dropping off the face of the earth.

I don't know, actually. I'm just the artist.

but you'd have so much fun with Abyss, would you not? that coiled spring thing he does. ;)

if, on the off chance, they DO show up, Abyss was drawn all wrong in Draco, (he even had a nose that had to be Photoshopped out when it was being coloured) so a lot of fans would probably appreciate it if you drew him a bit more like so: http://plaza.ufl.edu/mabus3/abyss/ instead of his most recent appearance... but i know from all the sketches you posted for both this and Wolverine, you're good about research, anyway, so we likely don't have to worry. ;)l

An explination for the tattoos: he's... Maori?

Though I kind of assumed that was common knowledge.

Oh yeah ! I'd definitely want his brothers to show up ! Perhap's not in the first story-arc, but soon enough.
Kiwi and Abyss are great characters and Kurt NEEDS a universe of his own, original villains and supporting cast included.
A guest appearance by Wolvie or Shadowcat is always welcome, but let's hope we'll not only see X-Men.
It would be HIS series, and not another X-Men spin-off.
That, and I'm fed up with Nightcrawler being Wolverine's sidekick. Let's see him do some things he's better at than Logan !

Since Roberto wants Kurt to find HIS place in the Marvel Universe -that's what he said- , I'm sure we can trust him.:)

... And Darick, of course ! ;)

I'm half way through the first issue and had a great talk with Roberto today.

We're really into this book and on the same page with where it's going.

I think you all are going to be quite pleased.

Yeah, let's push him, Bamfette ! ;)
One drawing ! One drawing ! :D

It's great you and Roberto are "on the same page", Darick. It's important, if you want to produce a comic-book that will last. It's all about alchemy. I'm impatiently waiting to discover Roberto's new ideas and YOUR Nightcrawler in action.

So, one more time : one drawing ! one drawing ! :bamf:bamf

:eekWhy didn't I see this earlier?

From what has been said, and what I have seen about NC's Solo series, it looks like it's going to be a good one.

My moms gonna kiiiillll meeee. Looks like I have to start saving up and get a job.

Darick, your drawings are awesome. Your rightfull place is on the list of comic gods as listed in Diablo's siggy!:kiss

I got in trouble for showing off art early on, so it's going to have to wait, sorry!

I do know that Marvel's planning a big preview though, which is why I am halfway through a September release book in early July.

However, here's a new sketch for you all from my book.:kiss

One thing I LOVE about your work is the subtle way you work in facial expression. It reminds me a lot of Alan Davis and Excalibur. Even your sketches are freaking AWESOME!! September can't come soon enough.

I think that picture just shot to the top of my all time favorites list. If Kurt looks anything like that in the book, it'll be pretty much the best I've seen him look *anywhere*. For some reason he tends to look much too old in a lot of art, here he looks...just right, in so many ways. Thank you *so* much for sharing that with us. You rock.

that's so awesome! it's really nice to get away from the 'lets see how ugly and scary (and anorexic) looking we can make him!!!' we have had until a litle while ago. then Sal Larocca came along, and there was a great sigh of relief among fangirls, then Alan Davis, so things were good... but glad you are going in that direction, too ;)
