For the last four years I have been providing artwork for The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide (CBPG), from Gemstone Publishing. They are intros for different sections of the Guide written by J.C. Vaughn. Prior to the comic book style introductions, the were all text. J.C. thought it would be more entertaining to have a comic book style introduction in a book about comic books. That makes sense to me.
So he contacted me to join the fun. The staff at CBPG provides me with scans of rare comics and other tidbits that I need to produce the artwork, working from J.C.s script. I then put together the whole package, pencils, inks, colors, lettering, production, etc.
Every year we change a some elements of the introduction "About This Book", to reflect new or emerging trends in comic books, but the introductions for the different "ages" of comics stay the same.
The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide goes on sale March 25th.
