Cheryl Lynn doesn't think we're slick!

Our favorite reaction to our upcoming JERSEY GODS release comes from a gal who hails from Noo Joisey. You better listen to what she has to say. I know we do!

HELIUS managed to coax KURT BUSIEK into discussing JERSEY GODS.

JERSEY GODS is fresh, fun and energetic -- a great idea, an involving story, a winner right from #1. And Dan McDaid's artwork is astoundingly good. Check it out -- you're gonna like it!

--KURT BUSIEK




MARK WAID wouldn't talk about JERSEY GODS until BAROCK explained that it was necessary.

"Part Jack Kirby, part Grant Morrison, JERSEY GODS delights me with its energy. This book has heart. Cosmic Heart."

--MARK WAID

BAROCK WANTS YOU TO BUY INVINCIBLE 55 ON NOVEMBER 19! Might I suggest that you do as he says? It's not advisable to piss off a God of War.


JERSEY GODS - 6 page short in INVINCIBLE 55


On Wednesday November 19, make sure you pick up a copy of INVINCIBLE 55 by Robert Kirkman. Inside this awesome book you will find a new 6 page JERSEY GODS short that serves as an introduction to our upcoming series. The MUST read of the week is the JERSEY GODS in "The In Laws Are Coming."

Dan's designs!


Hello, I'm Dan McDaid, the artist on Jersey Gods. In the run-up to issue one, I’m going to be posting lots of ruffs and sketches and other goodies here. Above, we’ve got Centrus, who as you can probably tell from his enormous head and generally aloof demeanour, is a scientist. But whose side is he on?



This is Sirius. He’s wise and gentle, but don’t be fooled - he can kick arse when he needs to.


Our hero’s best friend, Helius. He’s Sirius’ son, and like all children of royalty he radiates effortless confidence and cool. (The short, preppy sleeves weren’t working - though I still like them - so they’re gone now)


Our hero, Barock. Or as he used to be known, Barrac. When Glen and I came up with this character, no one had heard of Barack Obama - real world events overtook us slightly here, hence the tweaking of the name. This is an early design for Barock - he’s been streamlined a bit since then. Glen had specified he wear a helmet for space travel, but when it came to drawing issue one I forgot that this was the case, so - no helmet.


Our heroine, Zoe. I think Glen has created a really special character here, someone who is by turns sexy, clutzy, spoiled, funny... hopefully my design lives up to this.


And a wee experiment I did with the issue one cover art - trying to channel Wally Wood!
