Default Code Word: Geronimo

Its been a few months since I finished drawing Code Word: Geronimo for IDW. I know its one of IDW's biggest selling books from last year, but curious if anyone here got a copy?

Seems like it was an "outside the box" kind of title, because of the military historical aspects. I mean, it sold well in comic shops, but it really did much better in the book stores. Walmart sold out in less than two months.

Anyway, would love to discuss the book and the future of military themed comics.

Here's a sample page of our art from the book. For those who haven't seen the book.

Pencils by me, inks by Amin Amat, and colors by Ruben Cubiles and myself.

I think it is. I know it was interesting drawing it. 72 pages of art in 3 weeks. I never went without sleep like that since I was in the army, and much younger.
