This cover is the last big Rainbow piece I'll likely do for a very long time. Maybe ever, who knows. The series is concluded and now will be collected in one huge, beautiful tome with this as its front.

I'm really happy with how this came out. It's my attempt to encapsulate a lot of the feeling of the book--especially the early chapters of the story. It was a lot of fun to make, even though it was a little bittersweet to be saying goodbye to the characters.

As was the style of Rainbow, Comfort drew the black-and-white Donna and I drew all the color characters. This time, I did all the color myself. Comfort deserves credit for finding the right level of gray for the background spatter, though, and for finding a way to make the logo pop. The logo was all her design, by the way. She's awesome at typography. I'm so lucky to have her! :D

Absolutely awesome. My comic book dealer admited to reading it before selling (bad him ;-) ) but that's what happens when you get your books from the same guy for nearly 20 years I suppose, we share stories about our respective kids too...

That's beautiful, man. I love the connections people can have with their comic shops, when it's a really good store run by good people. It reminds me of what capitalism used to be like, when small businesses were such integral parts of their communities and everybody knew everybody. It's that 50's TV version of America, you know? A lot of things are better now, but that's an aspect of life in this country I miss.

I suppose that's why the call it the American Dream. Something to aspire to, certainly.

Picked up my copy of the new Previews this week. I saw that there were a couple extra plugs for the book & that it was a staff pick for the month. Very cool!!! I hope that the additional attention garners more readers.

Ha! That'd be awesome. We'd love to see Daenerys (Emelia Clarke) play Donna. :w00t:

It pays to be prepared for anything. Even good news, occasionally.
