Sal & Bob return to Black Panther after 15 years!
Well, for a cover anyway! (Bare witness to the closest thing to click bait for me;-))
Marvel hired Sal Velluto and myself last month to render a variant cover for the new Black Panther series by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze. I inked the art while I was in-between the Twin Tiers and Terrificon shows. We’d offered our services as it’d been 15 years since we departed the title helmed by our pal Priest in 2002 with #49. Between the Panther’s Marvel cinematic debut in CAPTAIN AMERCIA: CIVIL WAR and upcoming solo film for 2018 and this new series, the time was right to give it a shot. It was a huge thrill for me to return to the property that Sal and I were probably most recognized for as a team with critical acclaim and award wins. Is there a chance of us illustrating an issue? Well, Marvel knew we were interested but there wasn’t a need for that at this time with scheduling. But you never know!
I will post info when this art is available for sale (or if I get a color file).
