Like I mentioned earlier, I’m making my DC Comics debut this month. Pretty darn stoked about this one, in big part because I’m making it with HELL YEAH cover artist RICKEN, who’s in turn making her American interiors debut. And guess what? Her art is just as amazing on the inside of a comic as it is on the outside. Speaking of covers — RYAN SOOK WHAT.
