ASTONISHING X-MEN #43
Written by JAMES ASMUS
Pencils by NICK BRADSHAW DAVID YARDIN & GABRIEL HERNANDEZ WALTA
Cover by ARTHUR ADAMS


Join us for a special told-in-one story with Emma Frost and Danger delivering on a promise back in ASTONISHING X-MEN #24. Dont miss this confrontation that has been brewing since 2008!

32 PGS./Rated T+ $3.99


...but since I believe Nick got pulled onto something else, Gabriel and I were asked to do the issue. I pencilled the majority of the issue (and inked some pages too), and Gabriel did a really cool Danger scene. We even swapped art chores on a couple of panels on each others pages for the scene shifts, so hopefully it works for you readers.

The page above was pencilled & inked by myself.

I spread it out over a few days while I was laying out the other ones. It was the first page I did of the issue i.e. my first sequential page in a looooong while.

It seems like a lot of different artists seem to "tweak" Beast's look. Did you get specific instructions for him or were you free to go your own way? Corwin

I think since he's been "Cat Beast" he's looked like everything from Beauty and the Beast Beast, to Blue Garfield. I just did my take. I prefer "Ape Beast" though.

what an insanely beautiful page. I love the shadows from the railings. And that panel Danger has herself into... holy cow. That's some painstaking detail right there.

I had to reference Danger a lot (first time I've drawn her), so I was looking at those issues.
