Calling Carlos

Arvid Nelson writes:

One of the best things about writing comics is the many fantastic artists I get to work with. Case in point: Dynamite paired me with Carlos Rafael for the Dejah Thoris series debuting in March. Just saw the first batch of pages for Issue 1, and they look absolutely stunning. Carlos’s drawing of Valian, a character from the series, is exactly how I imagined him. It’s rare for an artist’s version of a character to match my mental image so perfectly.

I can’t actually share these pages, of course, or Dynamite would hunt me down and eviscerate me with a sugar spoon sharpened to a dull edge on dog poop-smeared concrete. But I can show Carlos’s concepts for some of the main characters.
