Mind the Gap 01a by cakes Mind the Gap 01a by cakes
I seem to have been a bit (i.e. a whole lot) absent from all of social networking for a while. Need to work on that. Let's start with a ton of uploads.

So what's been taking up my time? A little thing called MIND THE GAP from Image Comics.

MIND THE GAP #1

Written by Jim McCann, art and cover by Rodin Esquejo and Sonia Oback.

After Elle Peterssen is mysteriously attacked on a Manhattan subway platform, she is left in a coma, the only clues to her attacker trapped inside her mind. No one knows the identity of the person behind this brutal beating or where they will strike next. In this new ongoing series, everyone is suspect, and no one is innocent.

48 pages, $2.99, in stores on May 2.


Yes, I'm drawing an entire book. Very exciting. Also very scary as this is my first real sequential work other than the 7-page Cinderella short story in Fractured Fables.
Hopefully you guys will flip through it at your local store and, if you dig what you see, buy a copy and spread the word.

This here is one of the 50/50 split covers, amazingly colored by Sonia Oback.

the sonic recolors attacked and stole the imagination from her brain

Manhattan? Shouldn't this take place somewhere in England?

This is a fantastic cover. It gives enough information but is still very mysterious. I don't need to read the summary to know what it's about.

I must purchase the book.

The detail and the depth of the atmosphere is addicting. Plus these types of stories capture my attention.

I just noticed; should her spirit form have a shadow...?
(the shading was done beautifully, but should she even HAVE a shadow?)

Amazing.
Her transparency is so subtle, at first glance you'd think it was her twin sister laying on the ground and not her own physical body.
:heart: !!

(at first I thought her friend/sister was hit by a train)

Story sounds like that Face in the Crowd movie a little bit...

But the artwork was cool ^_^. I like how you got it to look all grungy and realistic, something that is hard to do properly (and convincingly). :D

It's actually a comic that came out yesterday.
It's about her being put into a coma and trying to figure out what happens.
