What I’m working on this week.

Often I spend an entire week slogging away on one project, or finishing one and starting another, but this week brought an unusual amount of variety. I started the week working on THE UNWRITTEN #27, clip above…

…then spent an evening hand-lettering a Prince Valiant Sunday page for Gary Gianni. The syndicate letters the strip for print using a font based on creator Hal Foster’s lettering, but when Gary sells a page of art, and the buyer wants the lettering on it, Gary hires me to do it. It’s a nice change of pace, not something I’d want to do all the time, but fun once in a while.

Then I lettered a two-page strip written and drawn by J.H. Williams III for the next LIBERTY COMICS ANNUAL, a fundraiser for The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a charity I support. This was a corker, JH put about four pages of story into one busy spread. 80 balloons! But it’s cool stuff, of course, and I was happy to do it for him.

Next I started a batch of 10 pages for the third and final book in THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: CENTURY. As always, this one is moving very slowly, but I’m sure it will we worth the wait. Here’s one panel from page 12.

Didn’t get too far on it today, and now corrections for UNWRITTEN have arrived. I’ll do those next, then start on something else that’s hotter than LOEG. I have several to choose from!

    Hi, I’m a devoted reader of Alan’s League series, and the wait for the second issue has been killing me (and gotten to the point where its delayed relase has become a running joke with my dad). I was wondering if you think the wait for the third issue will be as long as the one between issues one and two.

    Thanks, and keep up the good work!

    P.S. I love your work on the Fables series as well.

    Yes, Kevin works very slowly, and I don’t see that changing. Such is life, it’ll be worth the wait.
