Even though my birthday isn't for two days, The Wife got excited enough to pass along two comics that she had bought for me. One of them was a signed first issue of Prophet of Dreams.
It was an indie title from Broken Tree Comics that came out a few years back by Julian Lawler and Rudy Vasquez. More significantly, it's a comic that I have several pages of original art from. Including the cover! It's artwork I had won a couple of years ago, and have had trouble locating the actual issues. But now, I have the opportunity to compare the original art to the final production of it.
I believe I've mentioned before that I enjoy comparing original art to the actual comics, but this was interesting because most of it was still in pencil form. Unlike Stuart Immonen's pencils -- which I do have a page of -- Vasquez's pencils were very tight. That's not to say Immonen's pencils are loose, but Vasquez's were much tighter.
