The Granite State Comicon was two weeks ago and I will reiterate that I had a phenomenal time. I shopped, bought comics, and met great creators.
One of the ones I was eager to meet was Rebekah Isaacs. Isaacs is most famous for her work with Christos Gage on the Buffy spin-off Angel & Faith book. And boy, she brings it on that book, a great mix of quiet moments and horror.
Now I will admit, I was struggling with the list of names of who I should get commissions from. And then, people whose opinion I value tremendously, told me I would be foolish not to move Isaacs to the top of the list. It was Diabolu Frank from the Idol Head of Diabolu that was the straw that broke the camel's back.
And I have to thank each and every one of those people. Because of their advice, I did move Isaacs to the top of the list, contacted her before the con, had my name penciled onto her list, and got this great commission.
Whereas the Aaron Kuder commission from the show is an action shot, this Isaacs piece focuses on the angelic nature of Supergirl. This is absolutely saintly, eyes closed, hands low, floating amongst the sun rays and doves. It is wonderful. Wonderful.
I have always loved this Archie-style cover of Angel and Faith #20, such an perfectly odd cover for 2 vampires and a vampire slayer. And Faith's expression is perfect.
Thanks to those who recommended Rebekah Isaacs to me.
And thanks to Ms. Isaacs herself for this great commission!
