War of the Independents is an ambitious six-issue crossover project involving nearly every independent comic book creation you can think of. Three issues have come out thus far. I was invited to do a cameo appearance of Megaton Man for the fourth (all-humor) issue a couple of years ago, followed by a back cover (below). Now, guru Dave Ryan is planning to run off to the Bahamas (or somewhere) and get married, so it looks like I may end up drawing the rest of the issue! I've been provided with a plot and script for the first five pages (and if the rest doesn't show up soon, I may just have Megaton Man and The Tick beat the crap outta each other for 15 pages)! Publication details will be announced later, after artwork for the book has been completed -- an innovative practice completely unheard of hitherto in the comic book industry! Stay tuned...
