  • Ghost Rider 2099 | Daddy Dearest | Salgood Sam ● Com
    pick up to work on my chops develop better working habits and find out which editors at Marvel i liked I m a fan of cyber punk so I courted work on the 2099 books for the sake of their aesthetics I was also trying to work on my own writing and collaborative with writers I d made friends with because I recognized the more control and influence I had on a book the better not a new idea to me but something I had thought I could not hope for in a place like Marvel at first I d been working on a few ideas with my buddy Scott Andrews and good block full of bluster and eager as hell to get into american comics we had fun playing with ideas together and after doing one GR 2099 story for him I pictched the books edior Joey Cavalieri to let us co write another that I could draw as a file story He said yes as so we went at it The story I think in part owes a lot to Scott s relationship with his father and I liked it for its hart a lot Drawing it went pretty good I was really pushing to do it fast so i can t say it s my best work But I was pretty happy with it having co wrote it with Scott when i sat down to layout the pages it struck me how easy it was i had alredy visualized it so much i did nearly complete mini versions of the pages in ink strait off 1 2 3 I was really eager to see what Bernie Mireault was going to do with it for the colours I was also really happy with the cover art I did for it one of my best pieces ever I think It went off in a fed ex box Scott and I were paid in full and we waited excitedly to see it in print It would have been a first for both of us Scott s first in print and mine as a writer A few weeks later all the 2099 books were cancelled as part of what was called The Marvelution Our GR 2099 issue never saw publication A while back Scott had it on his site and it s popped up as part of torrents of the series but for whatever reason Scott took it down a little while back probably for being an old and dated example of his work but while it s not the best thing ever I like it still so I thought I d rescan some good copies of it and post it here now This lettering is something we did after the book was cancelled so that we could at least enjoy it ourselves and have it as a sample I m told Bernie did colour guides for it as well but I ve never seen those If they exists still they

  • Spiderman 2099 – Behind the Eight Ball | Salgood Sam ● Com
    2099 One was this 10 page short for 2099 Unlimited Vol 1 8 It was called Behind the Eight Ball The coloured parts are overlays for Holographic images I ve included the printed version of the art to show how that really didn t work out so well I don t know really who had the job of what we take for granted now as an easy do it yourself Photoshop layers effect Back then in 95 you provided the overlays on a hope and prayer done up an a separate sheet in b w or tones with cross hairs on them to line it up with the master I d have notes describing what I hoped for but Also in print the colours were way too saturated and the plate was ugly to me A big part of the problem was the white glossy paper a lot of the colonists did not adapt well when it showed up calling for way too much ink on the page Looked awful sorry to say I recall being really bummed out when I got my copies At this point in my time working for Marvel it seemed like every issue something was going wrong and it was getting me down Took about 5 more years to learn every book you do something goes wrong Especially if there s more than one cook in the kitchen A lot of the stories I did at this time were with Joey Cavalieri he was a great editor Out of my work at Marvel my flavorite Be nice to work with him sometime again The story was by Terry Kavanagh Ed Lazellari coloured it and Janice Chiang lettered Go full screen for best experience Share this Click to print Opens in new window Click to email

  • Saint Sinner | My trial-by-fire | Salgood Sam ● Com
    the Man Who Walks Between Whether this will prove to be a blessed or a cursed condition only time and our tales will tell I was very excited This was a very prestigious gig to get so soon in my carrier I had very little experience but lots of energy When asked if I was up to it I was honest it was more than I had ever taken on before but I was eager to take a swing In the end some of the problems that developed were probably due to my inexperience But I was not happy with the way things went on the book it was very hard to stay motivated and push to meet the deadlines when everything I liked about the characters and scripts got hacked out and my questions complaints and eventual protests went unheeded In the end I retired from the book after four issues and helped ink a 5th It was a major learning experience for me and I m proud of much of the art I contributed to the books World Without End Saint Sinner 1 Art Max Douglas Colours Christie Scheele Script Elaine Lee 18pg story Earthangel Saint Sinner 2 Art Max Douglas Colours Christie Scheele Script Elaine Lee 22pg Book It s a Jungle In Here Saint Sinner 3 Art Max Douglas Colours Christie Scheele Script Elaine Lee 22pg Book The Fear Monger Saint Sinner 4 B W Art Max Douglas Colours Christie Scheele Script Elaine Lee 22pg Book Arcadia pt2 Saint Sinner 5 Pencils Richard Pace Inking Max Douglas Colours Christie Scheele Script Elaine Lee 22pg Book Cover art for book 1 One of the first problems I had on this book was with the cover art for the first issue The book is called Saint Sinner so it struck me as a bit silly that the reason my first cover was rejected a few weeks after it was enthusiastically received and used for some early promo material was supposedly that it had a cross on it No really A bit exasperated but eager to make good I said OK what do you want for the cover And I drew that exactly Then didn t like it I was trying to get the book done so I said OK clearly I don t do covers you like so why don t you get someone else to do it I ll give it another try for the next issue but right now I m falling behind on the book and need to focus on that Instead they cut and paste the two into what you see on the right When I heard they also wanted to put an embossed foil cover on it I tried to explain how the audience they had told me they wanted to target sandman readers would never touch a gimmick like that And gimmick buyers would not dig the comic They ignored me Later it would in part cost me about 6 thousand CND

  • My Sandman Samples | Salgood Sam ● Com
    was formed but her roll as the editor of all my favorite tittles well established I was contacted by her assistant and asked if i d like to do some test pages They even paid half the standard rate Something i m told is no longer often done Pretty sweet and I loved Sandman so was hyped about this This scene came from a story written for Jill Thompson to draw and I recall being blown away with how well Neil wrote It was a pleasure to do these from his script I also am happy the issue had not come out yet so I had to come up with my own stuff and then later was able to look at what Jill did after the fact The thing that really jumped out at me was how similar our panels were I chalk it up to Neil s script it was so very clear and enjoyable to read and perfectly painted the frames in my head It made the work effortless Very rare i ve found working with other authors scripts over the years since They like these at the office but had some issues with my cross hatching and they wanted to see more story telling so they sent me some more samples to do on Shade the changing man I was in the midst of doing those the only one that got totally inked follows the sand man pages here when Marvel called and hired me to do 19 pages at full rate for Night Breed Kind of wish sometimes i d made time to finish that second test and gotten in at Vertigo early on after all The last two images here are sketches I did between 1993 and 1995 of DC characters i d have liked
