The following is artwork for the last in a series of 4 short (10 page) stories written by Len Strazewski, and penciled by me for AC Comics Stormy Tempest character. Stormy was created by Bill Black had been appearing in Femforce as a character from the future who was sent back in time to assassinate a U.S. Presidential candidate. She was captured and sent to prison, then escaped only to end up working as a stripper in a gentleman's club in Vegas. As the tale progressed her antagonist became her former best friend from the future. In this story, we see the aftermath of Stormy's battle with her friend, meet an investigative reporter (loosely based on Newsarama's Jill Pantozzi) and a police detective with his own secret to hide. Unfortunately for writer Len Strazewski and I, this was the last Stormy Tempest feature we would work on, because of a change in editorial direction. I was also in the middle of drawing Moonstone's The Saint and Zenescope's 1000 Ways To Die when the script for this arrived. Because of this I ended up keeping the pencils looser than I would have preferred, especially for the last half. This story was published in Femforce #158 (2012).

Happy New Year! Since we are at the beginning of 2013, I thought it would be fitting to look back at 2012. Here's what I was up to.
The bulk of my work last year was for Bluewater's Victoria's Secret Service. The issues haven't been published yet, so I can't really show full pages. However, here are some of my favorite panels:
In addition to the interior pages, the covers were also completed, inked by Andrew Pepoy and beautifully colored by Jason Millet :
Also in 2012, the finishing touches were done on Moonstone's The Saint story with inks done by Barbara Kaalberg:
In November, I penciled a story for AC Comics featuring the character Tara:
The Tara story will be published in Femforce #162, out in February.
Last but not least, I got to flex some different muscles muscles by doing some "flats" for colorist Kate Finnegan. Kate was coloring a book called "St. Frances School For Zombies":
2013 is starting out busy. I'm currently working on a World War II story written by Erica Schultz, and will be doing more work on Len Strazewski's corporate super hero story. Stay tuned...
