overdue post

 Here are some of the things I have been slowly working on. These are a couple of additional pages for 'Pre-flight' - the stand alone Captain Spectre adventure I am currently working on. I don't want to give it all away as I want some surprizes left in the book. But I do like getting reactions to the storytelling and art from everyone so I will post as much as I can. Alot of it will be process stuff, from pencils to inks into the color process. I am trying to keep this story short and simple and that is tough to do as I want to pack all kinds of things into it. But I have to try and keep it manageable so I will finally finish one book at a time. ha. I want it to be action packed so keeping the speeches down is tough to get some ideas across. After all it's about the action for Captain Spectre.
Also a character piece for 'Number 13'. Here we have Virginia manning the Maxium machine gun mounted on the foredeck of the yacht, with the chinese cook bringing ammo to her as they strike back at the pirates.

And again apologies to all the loyal Legionnaires for the lack of posts. I have been having a very hard time with my physical and mental states lately. But I will leave all that up to my biographer when they write my pitiful life story.....ha.


  1. Tom, you sure know how to make me happy, seeing your new Captain Spectre art! Lightning Legion Airship? I can't wait to see what happened! Besides, I'm a big Airship fan. The second page, very emotional. You sure are a great storyteller with your art.

    The Number 13 art, so much action packed on one page, blowing me away!

    Tom, no apology needed, when you can post, you post, and it gets me something to look forward to! Take care, my friend!

    Lloyd, Loyal Legionnaire.

  2. Amazing stuff as always, I like the high action, but also the panel of the Mom cooking breakfast is a nice splice of Americana past. Like Lloyd said, don't worry about updates, I figure you do what you can do, but it's nice to look at your art when it arrives.
