Good piece man. Charest's run on Wildcats was excellent, especially near the end of his stint as his style really started to emerge. I've no idea what he's doing now. I'd highly recommend tracking some of those issues down.

awesome

i loved the WildCats when they began, then i lost touch and found out they went through soooo many re-inventions... i check out the upto date issue and they just dont feel right.... but i managed to lay my hands on some volume 2 and volume 3 backissues.... man V2 was aweful, it was talking heads every issue, at least they changed the artistic team for V3 and we got to see Grifter get shot to shit

it really wasnt was it. i mean i think it could be done the same, but youve gotta pick a writer who actually wants to do edgy superheros

Well I think the good thing about the original wildcats was that it was written cliche and typical. It would be nice if everything didnt have to be so convoluted and complicated as long as theres good art.

man i totally agree, you read so many comics today and their too complicated and the writers are going off on a bender, spending a whole issue plotting how some dude is going on the toilet... i like the action fast and the heros in obvious costumes :)

thats one of the things i wanted to do with my own stuff, Like BeWere i just posted up for PulpGirls, the concepts have to be easy and quick to understand so the reader can jump right in

ya gotta hit up the cons. put a nice leave behind portfolio in the peeps hands. start doing books that only showcase your work, so that the focus is on your work, and not others. just from that alone it'll turn heads in your direction. :)

it's all about self marketing.
it totally works. that's how i got work in 2004 with DC Comics, and the year after in animation.

just from experience, i haven't had to look for work in almost 4 years.
keep humble, crank out the awesome work, and the work will come to you.
be a people's person, and people will hunt you down at the cons.
it's such a great feeling to be able to sank you to people in person.
and it keeps you inspired to know who out there enjoys what we do.

Man! Never really dug on wildcats (comic or cartoon), but if their cartoon looked like this I'd have been a regular viewer! Pitch this to Jim Lee or someone... I know they'd bite. Aren't they trying to breath more life into the old wildstorm universe these days?

Amazing, the execution is almost zen-like. I am in awe of artists like you who can take away everything that is superfluous and retain the essence of a character.

To think that at some point comic art was judged to be good based on the amount of cross hatching on it.
