Ghost Rider 2099

In 1995 Joey Cavalieri at Marvel Comics commissioned me and Scott Andrews to do a file issue of Ghost Rider 2099. The complete 22 page story titled 'Daddy Dearest' is available online here at Scott's web site. The thumbnail to the left here is the cover art from that issue. That book came out pretty good, and we were pretty hyped about it getting printed some time that year.

About 6 months latter Joey hired me to do the art chores on another File story for GR2099, great news to me as I really enjoyed drawing the big guy! This issue, titled 'Horrorshow', was scripted by another, not nearly as well know then as now, UK writer. Mr Warren Ellis. What follows on this page is the first 12 pages of that story.

Sadly, both these 2 books remain unpublished, the title having been canceled shortly after the second story was completed and before either of the file stories were needed.

Ironically these two stories, Horrorshow in particular, represent some of the best, tightest work I did at the time in the graphic
Sci-Fi style i had been trying to refine at the time.

The pages seen here are still some of my all time personal favorites for the line quality and general consistency of style that was achieved.

Hello sir, love your work,

that Horrorshow issue looks great, any chance that you can post the rest of the issue so we can get a look at it?

I may some day, but i never have gotten the all clear from Warren, and frankly i also think at this point the mystery is probably more exciting than the thing itself ;)
