Hero Code - Moving Forward

It is with great sadness that I report that Jonathan Rector will be stepping down as the artist on the Hero Code story-line, The Menace of the Mannequin.

Jonathan did fantastic work on the first issue of the series, and really helped make the Kickstarter a success, and give the book a look which brought the world to life.

Hopefully I will get the opportunity to work with Jonathan again in the future.

Agustin Calcagno will be stepping in to start work on issue two, more news to follow on this.

Agustin has just finished working on the prologue issue to the Hero Code mini-series, The Theatre of War, and so is a good fit to the Hero Code universe.

I hope to have some pages and updates to share with you soon, in the meantime here is a sneak at the cover for that Theatre of War prologue issue;

The Theatre of War will feature art by Agustin and Gary Lister.

Sad to hear but :( I love Jonathan's work... but the show must go on right? I'm glad to hear the book is moving forward. Looking forward to what comes next!!! :)

Thanks, MarshallPlex. I absolutely love Jonathan's stuff too. We really tried to make it work, but sadly real life just didn't want to play along!

I'm excited to get back onto the book, and hope that we can get it coming out a lot more regularly now.
