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!

ALA 2015 by Justin Greenwood

I’m going to be in Artist Alley at the annual conference for the ALA in San Francisco this weekend! It’s my first time exhibiting at this show so looking forward to checking it out and talking shop with folks.

5 Day Art Challenge- Day 2 by Justin Greenwood

Today’s art is from the onipress book WASTELAND, a project that I drew a couple arcs for with my friend and current THE FUSE collaborator Antony Johnston (antonyjohnston).

Check out some early character sketches I did when warming up to some of the characters + a few pages from issue #49. Some of the early drawings were done on scratchboard, a technique I’d like to be using more often but it’s not cost efficient for interiors. Instead I use it mostly for pin-ups or cover drawings, but occasionally I still break it out just to play a bit.

Very excited for this issue to come out. The plot thickens:

WASTELAND: THE APOCALYPTIC EDITION HC Volume 4 from onipress

Writer: Antony Johnston (antonyjohnston)

Art: Justin Greenwood (justingreenwood), Russel Roehling ( russelroehling), Christopher Mitten (christophermitten) and others

As proud as I am of having worked on this story, I’m particularly proud of this portion. These hard covers are among the nicest comics I own, really beautifully designed books. The adventure continues:

“The award-nominated sci-fi epic continues in this fourth deluxe hardcover! Michael and Abi walk on through the desert, but tensions between them could jeopardize the search for A-Ree-Yass-I entirely… while in Newbegin, the arrival of the Children’s father heralds Marcus’ downfall. Reprinting issues #40 to #52 of Wasteland, this oversized volume also includes the final "Walking the Dust” stories, plus a special interlude issue and cover gallery by series co-creator Christopher Mitten! Written by Antony Johnston, with art by Russel Roehling and Justin Greenwood, featuring cover artwork from Christopher Mitten.“
