This sure is a real point of pride for me. I think back to my youth spent poring over Stan Lee and John Buscema's How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way and the number of times that I heard kids tell me they'd see my name in Marvel comics. I never believed them and I'm surprised and a little proud of myself for this. My cap just got a feather! I'll have more broohaha as the release date approaches.

Over the last couple weeks I've been working on a short story for an upcoming Marvel comic. Yes, this is my first invite into the House of Ideas and I can't wait to show you what I did! The above image will have to do for now. I'll keep you posted with maybe some more art previews as we get closer to showtime.
In the meantime, you can always take a look at the new Facebook group for XOXOs! There you will find some sneak peaks at upcoming projects by myself as well as studiomate, George O'Connor. Whaddaya waiting for!? Git!
My good friend, Dean Haspiel, was recently tapped to be part of a new Marvel original webcomics initiative! It all kicks off this Halloween and to commemorate the event, Dean has come up with a gem of a story featuring both Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night! Here's a synopsis of the story:
Halloween Special Issue Frankenstein might be one of the most misunderstood monsters out there... so it's just his luck when an overprotective mother temporarily blinds him, thinking he was attacking her daughter. Fortunately, Frankenstein stumbles into Jack Russell, a.k.a. Werewolf-by-Night, a friend who understands Frank's plight. That is, until the full moon comes out... Make sure you sign-on for this special Halloween Monster Mash, from writer/artist Dean Haspiel! And make sure you check out Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night who each face-off against the Hulk in their own stories in Monster Size Hulk - on sale now!

Holy altruism, is Infurnari posting a link to his friend's latest comic out of the goodness of his mechanical heart!? Absolutely NOT, faithful reader! You know me too well. Dean Haspiel asked that I color this comic and in so doing has helped me get my first Marvel coloring gig! So the drawing above is all Dean and the colors, well, that's my contribution. I'll have more information as we get closer to launch. In the meantime, enjoy the above image as a small teaser of what's to come…
