Alien Spotlight: Klingons is gonna ROCK!

Okay, I may sound overly enthusiastic, but holy shit is JK Woodward hitting it out of the park with his artwork for the Star Trek: Alien Spotlight issue focusing on the Klingons that I scripted. I've now seen all but two pages of artwork, and WOW.

This is turning out magnificently, and I can't wait to see it in print.

It's amusing going back to doing comics after ten years away from it. Between my job at Byron Preiss and writing Perchance to Dream, I worked with comics quite a bit in the 1990s, and the process has completely changed. BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Mark Waid discussed it in a recent blog entry, talking about the differences between his time editing at DC and his recent return to editing at BOOM!:
During my first tour of duty, artists and writers worked via FedEx, colorists still slapped colored dyes on paper, hot dogs were a nickel, and everything was basically hard-copy. Now, scripts are e-mailed, art is scanned and uploaded to the FTP, lettering’s done with Adobe Illustrator, and in the entire time I’ve been at BOOM!, I’ve yet to have an actual, physical piece of art cross my desk.

But hey, I dig having the artwork on my computer......
