DP 63 Cover

Cover to Doom Patrol No. 63, Grant Morrison's final issue, as well as Crazy Jane and Rebis's.  One of my personal favorite issues.  From 1992, nearly 20 years now.

Looking back on these reminds me how much building of texture I was really into exploring in my inking work then.  Drybrush, litho crayons, spatter and liquid frisket to preserve the white of the paper are all on display here.

Still as beautiful as the first time I saw the cover.

My favorite single-issue comic and one of my favorite covers.

Thanks for all the work you did on that series.

Best run of a superhero group ever. Even my wife loved it, and she doesn't much care for superheroes. Bought a page off you years ago with her favorite character (Danny the Street), my favorite character (Cliff), and our second favorite character (Crazy Jane) on it. Thanks!
