Aside from be my collaborator on Dead Inspector, Filip is an engergetic, enthusiastic and talented promoter of the comic art form and it's great to see him being recognized as such.
Whether you know him from his stunning back covers to the early Devil's Due run of G.I. Joe (back when G.I. Joe was, you know, AMERICAN) or his stunning first sequential work in THE WICKED WEST 2 or his subsequent majestic JONAH HEX material, David Michael Beck is an incredible talent.
And now he's Zombie-Proof.
David just turned in his beautiful, fully-rendered pencils for his variant cover for Zombie-Proof#3, which is due out in January (and in all fairness to the fantastic people at Moonstone, if it's late it's our fault).
Vince and I are just blown away by this piece that really captures Billy Bob Driwahl in all his defiant glory. Blown. Away.
And David did this while dealing with a tough family illness, too. Isn't that incredible? If you'd like to see more of his work, check out his site or his upcoming (but as yet unscheduled) return visit to Jonah Hex.
