THE LAST SIEGE #2 and the WASTELAND Compendium Volume 2 are on sale now! by Justin Greenwood

THE LAST SIEGE #2 main cover by Justin Greenwood and Brad Simpson

THE LAST SIEGE #2 went on sale last week on 4th of July. We did a fun signing at Cape and Cowl in Oakland, CA and I've been on the road post-holiday but wanted to make sure it was noted and up here. The violence picks up as we get a taste for who Feist really is what he's capable of. Nasty fella.

From the solicit: 

The mysterious Stranger prepares the castle for war, while Feist and his men struggle to avoid the executioner's axe. With little hope, and less time, the Stranger unveils his secret weapon.

Writer: Landry Q Walker

Artist: Justin Greenwood

Colorist: Eric Jones

Letters: Pat Brosseau

Editor: Branwyn Bigglestone

Design: Keith Wood

This one featured a variant cover by the great Gabriel Hardman, as seen below. LOVE this cover.

What a book this is! The 2nd half  of the long running series WASTELAND from Oni Press is collected here, including both arcs of the book that I worked on. I really enjoyed drawing parts of this story and it was the first time I got to work with my pal Antony Johnston, who I later re-teamed with to create our sci-fi crime series THE FUSE.

619 Pages! This thing is a beast.

From the solicit: 

The conclusion to the sprawling tale, collecting issues #32-60!  After leaving the Dog Tribes and Newbegin behind, Michael and Abi continue across the desert in search A-Ree-Yass-I. Joined by another who shares their strange gifts, the tensions between them nearly jeopardize their quest while Newbegin prepares for war. When they finally uncover the fabled land, it will take everything they have to unearth the truth... and then the story of The Big Wet can be told!

ALEXANDER HAMILTON: THE GRAPHIC HISTORY OF AN AMERICAN FOUNDING FATHER by Justin Greenwood

It’s official! News is out that I’ve been secretly working away on an ALEXANDER HAMILTON OGN with writer Jonathan Hennessey for Ten Speed Press, an imprint of Penguin/Random House Books.

After becoming a big fan of the musical, working on a book of the same subject matter has been an absolute blast and I’m finding out more about Alexander Hamilton than I ever would have guessed.

This book hits shelves in August, but you can expect to see more preview art as we get closer to release. In the meantime, check out an early look at pages below, and check out MY SITE for more info and formal solicit material. Colors by the ever talented Brad Simpson and Letters by Patrick Brosseau.

STUMPTOWN VOLUME 4 is on sale this week! by Justin Greenwood

So excited to have STUMPTOWN Volume 4 in stores on Wednesday from @onipress! This volume collects the most recent PDX coffee caper THE CASE OF A CUP OF JOE and THE CASE OF THE NIGHT THAT WOULDN’T END, our mostly silent stakeout issue.

Coffee, Crime and more than a little bit of Cunning- this one has it all.

We are very proud of this collection and glad to see it finally on shelves. This hard cover features a great round table type discussion with Greg, Ryan and myself plus lots of new process material to check out. I had an insanely good time drawing this book- Greg had me frequently laughing out loud while working on this, but somehow never let it get in the way of some very poignant, beautiful moments in these stories. Really fun (and challenging) stuff to draw.

GREG RUCKA @ruckawriter (W) • JUSTIN GREENWOOD @justingreenwood (A/CA) • RYAN HILL ( C ) • CRANK ( L )

There is a good interview HERE on @comicosit with the whole team talking about the collaboration and storytelling in this volume.

You can also find a handful of some of my favorite original art from this volume up at my site HERE.

STUMPTOWN V4 is in November solicits from @onipress and can be ordered in advance with your local comic shop! The 152 page hardcover collects both The Case of a Cup of Joe and the single issue, mostly silent The Case of the Night That Wouldn’t End, along with a bunch of cool process sketches and a great roundtable discussion from Greg, Ryan and I.

Very excited to see this collected and hitting shelves in January. From the solicitation:

GREG RUCKA @ruckawriter  (W) • JUSTIN GREENWOOD @justingreenwood (A/CA) • RYAN HILL (C) • CRANK (L)

“Portland’s best private investigator Dex Parios is back, and this time, the case is a real grind. When she picks up a simple assignment to escort a package of highly-prized coffee beans, Dex has no idea that she’s stepping into the web of the Barista Mafia and eccentric billionaires with no compunction about using force to get the most coveted coffee around. And to top it all off, her sister is in town.”

THE FUSE #20 is on sale this week! by Justin Greenwood

STUMPTOWN #10 hits stands today! by Justin Greenwood

THE CASE OF THE NIGHT THAT WOULDN’T END arrives in stores today from @onipress! It’s a standalone case, a one-in-done story following Dex on a late night stakeout. 

STUMPTOWN #10 is the first time in a long while where I got to draw a complete story in one issue and also a comic that is mostly silent, both things that make for a really satisfying, fun to draw issue.

Greg (@ruckawriter) absolutely killed it with this story, putting together one of my favorite scripts to date and Ryan brought a great, moody vibe with the colors as we watch Dex struggle to figure out who is doing what with whom.

Here are the first pages that ran in the preview circulating online:
