STRINGERS #2 Pre-Order Reminder by Justin Greenwood


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:

Writer: Marc Guggenheim (marcguggenheim)

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!

Now available for Pre-Order in the newest copy of PREVIEWS:

STRINGERS #3

Writer: Marc Guggenheim (marcguggenheim)

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.

ECCC Commission Pre-Orders by Justin Greenwood

I’m going to be opening up a small list of pre-ordered commissions for Emerald City Comic Con, maybe 4 or 5 slots. This year I’m attempting to do them beforehand so I can relax and make something more finished.

EDIT: I am replacing the previous faulty link for requests. Instead, you can email me: justin (AT) justingreenwoodart (DOT) com. The slots will be first come, first serve.

I’m not typically able to take on commissions unless it’s around one of the few conventions I attend so if you’ve been interested, it’s that time. You don’t have to be attending emeraldcitycomicon to order one, provided you are willing to pay shipping and handling.

Commission size will be a minimum of 11x14. Inked drawings (and some wash). Backgrounds will be relatively minimal, but it will depend on the commission.

Single Full Figure (Inked)- $75    * Additional Characters ($40 each)

Here are some drawings I did last year at shows, with the exception of the last one, which was for fun.
