Fake Cover for "Irredeemable"

One of the classes I'm teaching this quarter is a graduate level course on digital design and processes for comics. Their first job was to create a cover for a comic or comic anthology whether an original book or otherwise. It's primarily so I can gauge each student's skill level and start them out learning how to use Photoshop. I found myself with time in class while students worked and didn't need my guidance so created this fake cover for "Irredeemable", one of the titles I color monthly. This took about six hours all together. It's been far too long since I've drawn rather than just colored so this was primarily an exercise in brushing off a thick layer of rust. Overall, pretty happy with it even if it's not the most original of concepts.

"Incorruptible" #26

The last chapter of the "Redemption" cross-over is out this week in "Incorruptible" 26. Let's just say it explains Max Damage 200% and makes his turn from evil not only completely convincing but utterly heartbreaking. If you've ever questioned Max's motives this will end that and give the entire series more weight as a whole. Waid shows why he's one of the best yet again.

"Irredeemable" #33

I couldn't find a preview for "Irredeemable" #33 on CBR or elsewhere so this might be the only one online! There's six pages instead of the normal four or five since these pages do recap previous events it doesn't give anything away. It's out this week and further dives into Plutonian's background and where he got the idea to become a superhero and the specific type of training it took. You think you know what I mean but you sooo don't. Again, it's almost enough to make you feel sorry for him. Almost. So get a copy as the "Redemption" cross-over continues!

EDIT: CBR just posted up their preview but only five pages. Enjoy the sixth one here!
