Uniques issue 7 Cover by AdamWithers Uniques issue 7 Cover by AdamWithers
This is the cover from Uniques #7: Barbecue. This issue, :iconcomfortlove: and I switched roles, meaning she was the primary penciller and I did the cover.

Usually it's the other way around, but we swapped for #7-8 for two reasons: First and foremost, she's a great artist, these are her characters first, and we both thought it was important that she get to have as much of a mark on the drawing of the comic as me. Even though she got a little scared as it was getting started, I refused to let her back down and she did a BEAUTIFUL job. I'm so lucky to have married such a talented and fun girl, and to be able to make a comic we both love together.

The second reason for the switch is that I'm already starting layouts for issue 9, which is 56 pages and crazy-intense. Like, beyond ball-busting. It's going to be HARD and it's going to be GRUELING, but it's also gonna be frickin' AWESOME! So although Uniques #7 is a month late, we're doing all we can to get our schedule back in line and get #9 out in a timely fashion despite its overbloated page-count.

In case you didn't notice, this image is based on a Norman Rockwell painting entitled "Thanksgiving." It was Comfy's idea, and I ran with it. Enjoy!

I take zero credit for the composition - that was all Norman Rockwell. I just plugged our characters in and added picnic foods! :D

All I've been watching lately are the Simpson's season on DVD

Season 5 6 and 7 so far are the BEST. Mainly 5 and 6.

Season 4...laid the foundation for the humor...and had the monorail episode

I dunno, man, whatever season had the B-Sharps is my favorite. I loved that episode.

For all the latest medical poop... call Surgeon General C. Everett Coop! Coop-oop-a-doooop!

This is brilliant~ I love the reference and how shiny everything is.

And I agree, the "Tasty Soda" is hilarious! :D

Beautiful job, both of you!

You have NO IDEA how many burgers I ate over the days of chipping away at this cover. I'd only put in an hour here and there over a few weeks (working mostly on interiors and having this as a sort of side-project all the while) and every friggin' time I did, I just HAD to have a cheeseburger afterward.

Yeah, we've been too busy making it to post it. We're back now, though - until we get busy again. Which, by my calculations, will be tomorrow morning. Ugh. I need a nap.

Haha awsome idea for the cover! :D The bags of chips are so shiny. I laughed at the "Tasty Cola".

I wanted to call it "Sody-Cola" or maybe "Sodie-Cola" but couldn't get a decent S in that style. Tasty it became.

The chips are shiny, sure, but you look at a Lays chip bag lately? I was amazed at how shiny they really are!

Haha yes they are shiny indeed. XD And you nailed the shininess in the pic. Also the food is making me hungry for lunch now. XD Again, great cover for the comic. :3

We don't have any paper copies yet, and won't until August. You'll have to order them from Indy Planet, I guess. :(
