For those of you who haven’t checked out the comic yet, I highly recommend that you do. TPB, single issues, digital, whatever method you prefer, just get it! Artyom ( ohotnig ) is an outstandingly talented artist; you’re going to want to keep your eyes on this dude and dig into his incredible work. Follow Artyom, follow Steve, and get your hands on UNDERTOW!

(Also, milonogiannis and I must think along the same lines, because we essentially drew the same pin-up for this comic, haha. My bad, Giannis! Check out his awesome pin-up piece too!)

SECRET AVENGERS #9 Cover

By Tradd Moore (lines) and Matthew Wilson (colors)

Strange magic can be conjured when you love who you’re working with. Upon sending me the script for SA#9, Ales and Wil Moss (editor extraordinaire) gave me carte blanche to do whatever I wanted with the cover based on the contents of the issue. Thus, this feverish piece of divinity was immaculately conceived.

Matt always blows my mind with his color work, but DANG he knocked it particularly far out of the park on this one. It’s an absolute pleasure collaborating with this fella!

On All-New Ghost Rider:

To whom it may concern, I’m wrapping up my time on ALL-NEW GHOST RIDER with issue 5 in order to return to work on my creator-owned series LUTHER STRODE.

All-New Ghost Rider #5 will conclude the first story arc of the series, Engines of Vengeance, and it’s a nitrous fueled whip chain of doom that will snake its way up your leg and throw your frail, pathetic body into the sun. Felipe, Val, and myself went wild on this one!

It has been a genuine honor working with the immensely kind and talented Felipe Smith, Val Staples, Mark Paniccia, and Emily Shaw to bring Robbie Reyes to life and share his story with the world. Huge thanks to Marvel for giving Felipe and me the opportunity to follow our creative vision for the comic, and an even BIGGER thanks to all the readers, friends, and family who have supported us along the way!

The rest of the crew is staying on board with All-New Ghost Rider, along with amazing artist Damion Scott, and they will continue to melt your faces and hearts every single month, so all y’all better stick around to follow the exploits of my boy Robbie Reyes!

As mentioned before, I’ll be returning to work on Luther Strode. Justin Jordan (writer and co-creator of Strode) and I have big plans for The Legacy of Luther Strode, which will be the conclusion of the series. I can’t wait to unleash it upon you all. It’s undoubtedly going to kick the head off of anything you’ve ever loved.
