Mark Chi called up last week and asked what I was working on. I got about three words out before he started insulting both me and the work. He said I should immediately put that work away and work on his project instead. He told me it was cooler than anything I could possibly be working on. Then he just said Doc Savage, The Spirit, Black Hawk, and Rima the jungle girl. Dammit… he was right.
He wanted the composition to illustrate DC's current pulp heroes versus their newly acquired ones. Not necessarily fighting, but more of a us versus them thing.
The sketch finished itself in my head before I hung up the phone.
