Special Delivery: Meet the Doom Defiers!

Here is a sequence from All-New Megaton Man #4 (pub TBD) that I have been working on, part of which I have posted before. The new pencil roughs frame the pages inked within the past year. Not only is the Devenger's legendary "D" table (from Megaton Man #8, February 1986) transformed, some history of the team and its Bayonne headquarters is revealed, and the current line-up of Doom Defiers is introduced (stage-managing a team book is the greatest narrative challenge I have ever faced)! Will Ms. Megaton Man ever get out of the beach house and join the volleyball practice?! Stay tuned!

(See previous posts on this blog for more previews of the All-New Megaton #1-4.)

Doomsday Drive: Meet Me in Bayonne!

Rough pencil layouts for the opening sequence to the All-New Megaton Man #4 (publication TBD). Megaton Man returns the trailer he used to move back into his old Megatropolis apartment, in which  he found new roommate and quasi-sidekick Connie Carlyle subletting. The pair grab a convenient cab ride from Alhambra Rasputin, who has been uploading terrorist videos -- but is he responsible for the attacks that brought the Man of Molecules back to New York, or is he just some homegrown nut? And why are the Doom Defiers playing beach volleyball in Bayonne NJ with terror alert levels through the roof?! The answers may lie at the end of Doomsday Drive...

Our lovely and talented model, a die-cast cab I picked up in NYC in 2000, with thumbs for this sequence in the background.
The sequence continues is the previous post.

Sandball: The Doom Defiers' Fabulous Beach House!

These are a selection of rough layouts from the All-New Megaton Man #4 (publication TBD) in which Megaton Man brings his new roommate Connie Carlyle to a beach volleyball practice in Bayonne, New Jersey. The Doom Defiers face a challenge match with the Bronx Bombers, and Connie is a semi-pro sandball player and aspiring Megahero. But will she be accepted by the group? Will they come together as a team? And will they be ready for the match?!
