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

WASTELAND Compendium V2 cover art by Christopher Mitten

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!

The ALEXANDER HAMILTON OGN is out this week from Ten Speed Press by Justin Greenwood

The wait is over! Alexander Hamilton: The Graphic History of an American Founding Father is available in stores this week. 

What a wild ride it's been. Lots happened on a personal level in the course of making this book and it gives me an extra sense of pride seeing how great it looks in print.

It's probably no surprise that a book intended for historical accuracy can be a major undertaking and could have been much more difficult if it wasn't for the tireless research Jonathan did in the course of writing this book (if you want a better idea of this, take a look at the CITATIONS). We also had an awesome team to collaborate with, and it can not be overstated how important Brad, Matt and Patrick were to the project and how nicely it has turned out.

I should also say that Ten Speed has proven to be a great publisher to work with, and a big thanks goes out to Patrick Barb, Chloe Rawlins and the rest of the team for helping put together a really great looking package.  We are all really excited to have this book headed to stores and in your hands. 

Writer: Jonathan Hennessey

Artist: Justin Greenwood

Colors: Brad Simpson

Ink/Background Assists: Matt Harding

Letters: Patrick Brosseau

Publisher: Ten Speed Press

This book can be found at your local comic shop and book stores (Tuesday for the former and Wednesday for the latter). For more online ordering info, you can use this link.

You can also check out a bunch of the original BW art for this book available in my store HERE.

And as always, thanks for reading.

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.

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.

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:

Final Order Cut-off for STRINGERS #2 from onipress is coming up on Monday, so just a reminder to let your local comic shop know you want a copy! The response to issue #1 have been overwhelming, and we can’t thank you guys enough for all the great feedback we’ve been getting on our book. 

From the solicit:

Artist: Justin Greenwood (justingreenwood)

Colors: Ryan Hill

Letters: Crank!

DIAMOND CODE: JUL151489

Nick and Paul hastily flee a shootout, leaving with their footage and a mysterious USB drive taken off a gang member. They quickly get pulled over by the cops, and Nick suspects something wrong is happening… why are the cops interested in them now, when they’ve been at countless shootouts before? Paul disagrees, but Nick is the one behind the wheel, which means that a high-speed chase through LAX is going to happen whether Paul likes it or not. But dodging the police doesn’t mean they’re out of danger… not when they’ve also royally ticked off a rival stringer.

What people are saying:

“Marks a promising debut, and one that doesn’t read like any Guggenheim comic before it.” - IGN
“The art by Justin Greenwood and Ryan Hill is beautiful and speaks to Los Angeles better than I have seen in a while.” - Graphic Policy
“The book is a great example of what can be done with comics outside of the traditional tights and powers tropes.” - Comic Crusaders

And as if that’s not enough, make sure you check out this killer variant cover by Brahm Revel (elrevel) below. Love the energy he packed into this composition!

STRINGERS #3

Artist: Justin Greenwood (justingreenwood)

Colors: Ryan Hill

Letters: Crank!

After barely escaping from Speziali unscathed (well, maybe some scathes) by tricking him into taking a blank tape, Nick and Paul drop off their actual footage at the news station with Michelle. During their late-night slurpee break, Paul breaks the news he’s being holding onto: he’s going to USC to get his degree and become a “legitimate journalist.” Nick is less than pleased, but it turns out that Speziali had the worst night… those cops came back, and Nick was right: they were definitely crooked. They put Speziali in the hospital searching for the tape, and now Nick, Paul, and Michelle are in danger.
