Deadpool and Shiklah at the end of The Gauntlet.
This series has been a hell of a ride, and I want to thank all the fans out there who were willing to give this whole digital thing a try, along with all the new storytelling possibilities that came along with it. We’ve been getting great reviews, and every chapter’s got a 5-star rating on Comixology– seriously, I’m floored!
It’s been a real learning experience, and I can’t wait to use what I learned here on the next digital comic that I do. Possibly more Power Play? Plans are still up in the air, but we’ll see!
I want to give a big shout out to my fellow creators on this series–
Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn for putting together such a fun yarn and for continuing to kick ass over in Deadpool’s regular print series.
Nelson DeCastro and Terry Pallot for their amazing inking skills– seriously, one of these days those dudes are going to have to teach me to do that properly!
Jim Charalampidis and Jim Campbell for their kick-ass colors, and for really diving into the whole digital thing to make this series fly. This series was an entirely different animal than a regular comic, and the Jims definitely stepped up to the task.
Joe Sabino also had to learn to grapple with the digital beast. Lettering can really make or break a digital comic like this, and Joe really came through for us issue after issue.
I want to give a HUGE thanks to Khary Randolph and Scott Koblish for helping me out on the art when deadlines started to get hectic. Those guys totally saved my ass and really helped this series look great.
And none of us would have been able to do any of this if it wasn’t for our editor Jordan White keeping the ship afloat, and believing in this project enough to let us get away with so much of the crazy crap that we did.
I hope everyone had as much fun with The Gauntlet as I did, and are as happy with the results.
I’m not sure what my own next project will be, whether print or digital, corporate or creator owned, but I’ll certainly mention it here when I figure that out.
Talk to you guys later!
