As quickly as it began, it was over.
I’m thrilled to report that artist Alex Diotto has completed work on our 4-page short comic, ADRIFT!
Last evening, the finished inks hit my inbox and I quickly went about lettering them up and completing the project.
This short initially came together in a matter of hours as a submission to the upcoming Titan Comics Undiscovered Talent Competition. Winners of the competition will be included in the publisher’s “Lost in Space” digital anthology, to be released later this year via ComiXology. In a matter of hours the idea hit, the script was written, the call was put out, and Alex answered. Here we are one month later with the finished product. Together, we’ve produced an all-ages piece that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
I want to extend a huge thank you to Alex for his enthusiasm toward this short. He’s a charming collaborator who breathed life into a big world contained in just a few small pages. The art is exhilarating, vibrant and absolutely stunning to look at. It’s been a super-hero team-up that I don’t want to end. Now that I think about it…maybe it won’t. (Hint hint.)
Judging for the Titan Comics competition is in mid-October. Until then, sit tight and know that if we’re not selected for the anthology, then we’ll still be releasing this online for free!
Enjoy some of Alex’s amazing art below. And trust me, this one’s gonna be gooooood.
