My story I wrote and illustrated for Marvel comics! out this November!


more info at Marvel.com's website! here

Here's the cover to the issue of Marvel Comic's "Strange Tales #3" (I didn't draw the cover) that I was honored to be asked to contribute to. It's an awesome unique 3 issue mini-series where they got indie creators to pretty much do whatever they wanted with Marvel characters. For those that are familiar with comic creators, names such as Paul Pope, Stan Sakai, Nicholas Gurewitch of "Perry Bible fellowship" (a hilarious brilliant comic strip!), Peter Bagge, Tony Millionaire, Jim Rugg, Johnny Ryan, Molly Crabapple (creator of Dr. Sketchy's) are all part of this series. not sure how I was luckily enough to be asked to be in this amazing group of creators but I'm very thankful. Shout-out to Aubrey Sitterson for asking me to come aboard this project! you rock, Aubrey!
It's only 4 pages but I tried to go all out and pack as much craziness and wackiness as I could. It's called "Suenami Cupcake" and is very fishy....
you can ask your local comic shop to order it now as it's being solicited. It should be out on November 4 in pretty much every comic shop.
here's a sneek peek snippet. I'll prolly post more soon!

Yowza! This is fuckintastic-Awesome!

Do I spy a Sam Gorrie jellyfish squiddy thing on the first page?

chris chUa! said...

heya Kirsten! thanks!

yup, that's Sam! cool, I wasn't sure if I got enough of some of the people's likenesses. She's actually suppose to be a portuguese man o' war which looks similar to a jellyfish but isn't actually a jellyfish. it's also known as the blue bottle. just some extra useless info for ya, heh. she's also suppose to be the marvel character Dazzler, who's also blue.

hope to see you at cripple con 3!
