The start of a three-issue arc called SAHARA, with art by Danijel Zezelj (Garry will be back at #25 to take us to the conclusion). Anyway, #22, in which Mary rides shotgun, literally, for a four-mile water convoy across northern Africa. Colors by Jordie, letters by Jared as usual.
a storm is coming(there’s an actual storm in there too). X-men 13
In this upcoming issue, I have this scene with Monet, and I really wanted her to look strong… not comic book superhero-strong, but real life strong, and so I sent artist Clay Mann this shot of Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet:
and asked for a build like that on Monet. Which I got:
We’ve recently moved house, and the combo of a couple dozen empty cardboard boxes and a huge basement den makes for some fun building castles and forts.

Some really patient people out there. Thank you.
Information Destruction Through History
Information the most valuable commodity in the world. All human progress depends on the accumulation and preservation of information. When information is lost, human progress suffers. This infographic displays some of the most significant loses of information human civilization has suffered.
(the ‘bravo’ balloon is out of order, that should come last. BUT I love this panel. From today’s X-Men). Clay Mann and Paul Mounts.
So this is out today, and I’m feeling validated that this unlikely series that debuted back in 2006 is something that warrants a fancy pants version now in 2014.
The entire 72 issues will be collected in five volumes, like so:
Book 1- #1-12
Book 2 - #13-28
Book 3 - #29-44
Book 4 - #45-59
Book 5 - #60-72
and contain a TON of extras, a lot of art and interviews as seen on that Live From The DMZ website that Justin Giampaoli and I put together. Worth picking up, I think. $30 via your local shop.
My new favorite workout.
fairbourne asked: Having seen the teaser images from X-Men #11, who came up with the hoodie and ball cap outfit for Jubilee, you or Clay Mann? Regardless I'm really loving it. It's kind of oddly perfect. Can't wait for X-Men #10 and #11.
thats all clay. he and i are really letting each other do our thing in our parts.
i can’t wait to see what he turns out for his arc. I’m so excited.
