Staple! is one of my favorite comic-cons to attend. It’s local (a quick hop to Austin) and it’s always packed with awesome indie creators and fan willing to try new things. Plus it actually focuses on comics, and not the mass entertainment/movie/video game tie-ins that so many are in the business for these days. The entire Space-Gun crew will be in ustin this March for the

Fellow Space-Gunner Paul Milligan an I decided to do a  short for inclusion in this years Staple! program book. It’s based on a rough concept by Jake Ekiss (another studio member) that proposed a series of shorts about the future’s hottest, toughest, space-fighting women. Think 50’s pinups and bomber art meet pulp adventure and futuristic sci-fi.  So everything I love about comics and sci-fi basically.

Words and inks by me, with sweet-ass pencils by Paul.

These pages are unlettered, so be sure and come down to Staple! and pick up the program book if you want to get your introduction to our new heroine Joanne Foxtrot. They’ll be plenty more of her to come as 2011 rolls along.

Staple! is March 5th and 6th at the Marchesa Hall and Theater in Austin, TX. Go here for more info.
