In 93' after working on two issues of Night Breed for Epic , I was hired on as the artists for a new title, part of the Marvel Razorline [home of the Barkerverse] called Saint Sinner. The Razorline was a set of 4 titles conceived by horror author and film maker Clive Barker, to be marketed I was told in competition with, the then Brand new, Vertigo comics from DC,which had proved there was readership big enough for a line in horror and fantasy books.
For me this project was no small thing at all, at 22 it was the first time someone had asked me to do a monthly title. I had no idea if I was up to the monthly schedule yet, a concern I expressed to Marc a few times.
Suffice to say, it was not the best first try at a monthly book. Bla bla bla. Here's the art. Sorry, this stuff was scanned in around 98 for the web then, so the quality is not so....
