Secret Identities Revealed to the Public TODAY!

Secret Identities: The Asian-American Superhero Anthology is out in stores today!
If you can't find it in your local comics store, request it!  Apparently, it's been hard to find in some areas, so if you find it in a store, please let me know so I can post those locations here.
Above is a drawing I did featuring characters from the 8 page story I did for the anthology called DRIVING STEEL. Written by Jeff Yang, it's kind of a supernatural western taking place during the building of the transcontinental railroad. Apparently, pages from the anthology will be auctioned off for charity at some point .  As my pages were done digitally, there were no "originals" to speak of, so I did this original pin-up separately for the auction.  I did this with real pen/brush and ink on standard comic paper.  It's the first time in a while that I've done something non-digitally and at that size ( if I do any real pencilling these days, it has to fit in my 8.5"x 12" scanner ). Boy it was hard going back to analog... I kept wanting to "undo"!  I added color in Photoshop for the blog, but the black and white original can be yours at a future date. Stay tuned for details!
