NEWUNIVERSAL: Round Two

December 22nd, 2007 | Work

I’ve been answering this question a lot, but word doesn’t seem to have gotten around. The long hiatus on NEWUNIVERSAL has been down to us waiting for the right artist for the job to get free of his other commitments.

A tiny preview of Steve bringing the explodo (see everything kind of bending around the guy in the top panel?):

I put him through the wringer on this first issue, and he responded brilliantly. Here’s a small look at the page of the YOUNG JUDGE BAO manhua I made the poor bastard draw:
