Shaky Kane: Blast From The Past #4

This is a real rarity. I was hunting through a drawer of original artwork and stumbled across a piece that I rescued from Shaky's garbage. This comes from the wilderness years when Shaky was scraping a living illustrating the Family Fun pages of his local newspaper, The Exeter Flying Post. Not sure of the date. The records have been lost.

Image books for March 2012

Image has just released details of their books for March 2012. I've already posted the covers of The Bulletproof Coffin:Disinterred #3 here, and cover and samples of Elephantmen #41 here. Now I can show you the two covers that have been produced for The Darkness #101. This is my first issue as regular writer on The Darkness and something I'm very excited about. Over the coming months I'll post updates on art, promotional signings and so on. Also check out the blog of the artist, the wonderful Jeremy Haun where you can see regular postings of Jeremy's art.

Right now there's a lot of activity at Top Cow as the company celebrates its 20th Anniversary with Top Cow: Rebirth. This week saw the release of Withchblade #150, as Ron Marz winds up his incredible 7-year stint on the book, before Hack/Slash creator, Tim Seeley takes the reins. The book includes repros of every one of the book's 150 covers. 

While you catch your breath, here are the covers for The Darkness #101:
