Attackosaur: Devil Executioner

Oct 31, 2014

It’s been a year or two ago at this point, and I don’t recall exactly how we connected.  Whether it was through an ad I answered online or if he found us, we’ve now worked on several projects with Martin Smith of Attackosaur Comics.

Martin has not only been a pleasure to work with in both instances, he’s also an extremely talented writer and designer.  His stories are pretty fun and tend to be short, self-contained books, which I think is great.  He’s not weighed down with trying to stretch a story out over a long period of time and he can release each book all at once.  I think that’s a great way to self-publish comics and I love the fact that you can pick up the book and get a full story.

Anyway, the first book we worked on together was one called Devil Executioner. It was a fun take on the horror genre and an entertaining story about exorcism.  We handed everything except the writing and lettering.  It’s a black and white book with pencils and inks from long-time Outland artist, Nicolas Giacondino, the logo design by Dustin Dade, and I handled the colors for the cover.

Check out the cover and some of the artwork below!

I actually had a lot of fun with the cover on this one – Nic, as usual, did a fantastic job on the lines.  For the color, I wanted to really give it an ominous feel, which is why I chose a low level light source and the stark yellow background.  I feel like it turned out pretty creepy!

If you want to read the full comic, you can purchase it directly from Martin here!

Thanks!
