Heya, gang!

Here's a cover I colored for Marvel.

The gorgeous pencils were done by Roger Cruz.

I had a ton of fun with it. If you'd like to know more about the issue: [link]

Hope ya digs!

im a little confused and annoyed at this man, ive got this comic at home
and sure on the front cover theres your tag, cheeks
but no where on the comic say anything about the colours of the front page, why is that?
because i only picked the comic up because i knew you coloured the front cover

Nice work man, but where is Thunderbird/Warpath ( I can never remember which one died and which is still alive :/ )


And when does this book release? I canceled all my Marvel books, but for some nostalgic stuff like this, I may just start up again.
