Prophet #41 is out today and I had the honor of doing that cover.
Story by Brandon Graham and Simon Roy
Art by Simon Roy and Giannis Milonogiannis
Diehard looks back at his life, thousands of years ago, to his first encounter with the Earth Empire.
Prophet is one of the best books out there, don´t miss it.
Yeah, Ron’s issue should be #42. He’s finishing it up right now. Sorry about that. The advantage of multiple artists working at once is that we can bump an issue if an artist needs more time.
I’m really looking forward to Ron’s issue too. I haven’t read it yet.(he’s writing, drawing and coloring it himself)

just noticed that a lot of shirts were listed as out of stock. Went ahead and fixed it!
I don’t have any real inking videos sadly, and I quit using the copic drawing pen a while now. I’ve recently been using dip pen nibs (mostly G-pen and maru) for actual inking. What kind of pen did you get?
Here are a couple of inking vids that I like:
Old man john prophet by Skuds Mckinley
ink on paper, colors in photoshop.
Eoin the Thought Bubble Redshirt drew this for me while he took care of Brandon Graham’s signing table at Thought Bubble on Sunday morning. Lovely fella.
I know the feeling. Growing up I always had people around me who I thought were doing much better work than I was capable of— my friends and my older brother. I don’t think I really liked most of what I drew until I was about 30. and by then I was onto the idea that it didn’t really matter.I’d figured out my own lane— I feel like the drawing has to be just something you do for you. It’s awesome to feel like you’re good at something but that’s all on the back end, it’s not why you should do it. Things get all messed up with the internet’s immediate gratification. When I was a kid I couldn’t show more than a couple people anything I did even if I wanted to.
and It’s totally ok to not draw and go after some other means of expression, everything is going to be hard—I think that ads some value to it but it doesn’t have to be a painful struggle.
I always say that my job isn’t really about drawing and writing as much as it’s about staying excited about drawing and writing. That’s the hard work.
I remember years ago, I had a job drawing porn comics and I had to get pages in to pay my rent. There’s that Tenacious D song that has the line “It doesn’t matter if it is good, It only matters if it rocks.” and as dumb as that is —it was like my mantra to enjoy the work and get over myself.
I dunno if that helps, it’s a struggle. Sometimes all I can do is rewatch the stuff that clicked with me most and spend all day looking over and redrawing panels from comics that got me excited about comics.
Here’s a few random pages from Delusional: the graphic and sequential work of Farel Dalrymple. If you are unfamiliar with his work you have some catching up to do as well as a lot to look forward to.
