Character Designs for the Knights of Hykon!

Issue 5 of Uncanny X-Men: First Class comes out on the 11th - next week. Here are designs for three of the Knights of Hykon (there are more, a few of whom will be revealed in issue 5). I've had a lot of fun with these characters - they are the first I've gotten to design since I drew the issue of Marvel Adventures Spider-Man that has yet to come out. The first three Knights have appeared in the last page of issue 4, which I got to sneak in and draw on David's watch (my thanks to David) -I posted that page a few weeks ago. I'm very happy with the way issue 5 looks and I LOVE how issue 6 has turned out, the first 8 or 9 pages of issue 6 I consider the best I've ever done, (so far).

and a little teaser panel from the book, part of one of my favorite panels - I won't show you who Colossus is hitting, but he's trying awfully hard, isn't he?

I also drew the next issue of Wolverine: First Class, issue 21, which comes out 14 days after the Uncanny book. Here's a bit of a sneak of a panel in the book. Wolverine looking appropriately ...wolverine-ish.

I urge you to accidently get turkey drippings on the pages, as the book comes out the day before Thanksgiving.

Then just a short 2 weeks after that, issue 6 of Uncanny X-Men: First Class hits the stands! And I'll be on issue 7, to start the new year off with a nice bang. Whew!

Hi Scott, do you sell any of your art? If so, where can I take a peek? I love your stuff and especially connected with your Marvel Adventures Avengers material.

Thanks for your work!

Hi Fred!

It's funny you ask, after mostly keeping it all in boxes for 17 years, I decided about two months ago to start selling it. We're in the process of cataloguing it all, it's around 1,500 pages, in the next month (or so) I'll have a good handle on what's there and I'll try and tell folks about it. The pile is over 2 feet high - and if I had to guess, I'd say it's only about 3/8ths of everything I've inked or pencilled... it's weird how it adds up.

I'm glad you liked Marvel Adventures Avengers! Boy, I loved that book, what a great cast, great scripts, Manuel was fantastic to work with. I really enjoyed myself there. I didn't really connect with Giant Girl's costume, but I thought she was a fun character...

I loved that MA Avengers book. I still consider it some of Parker's best work and Garcia is a great artist, whose pencils jump off of the page with the right inker. I look forward to the possibility of getting my hands on a page or two from you. Thanks for the reply!
