A Career Status Assessment Print

A LOVE/HATE OBSERVATION I MADE ON FACEBOOK TODAY: I've been continuously working the past few years on either assignments or commissions but they've not been mainstream assignments so to the comics community my status is probably MIA or 'dead';-)  But thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe my earlier work has been making the rounds in overdrive since this year and doesn't seem to be slowing down (Black Panther, Warlock, Thanos, Infinity or Starlin-related, Guardians, etc.). The Complete Priest Black Panther vol. 3 is solicited for April release and it collects the end of my run with Sal. And now it looks like they're collecting the Warlock and the Infinity Watch series from start to finish starting with Infinity Watch vol. 1 tpb solicited for release in March. On one hand I'm proud of the Panther work and I'm thrilled to see my career flash before my eyes (maybe I AM dead <g>) and the reprint fees are always much-appreciated but, being my earliest work, it's rough on these old eyes to see the raw mess that was my inking then. Thankfully, I got better;-)
