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!
