Remember in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK when that nameless freedom fighter warns Han Solo that it's useless to search for Luke -- and Han snaps at him and blows out of there?  Well, true to Craig McNamara and my many delightful Star Wars Stripz, here's how that conversation plays out in the scene we never saw...

For any good story you need a good Bad Guy.  An old adage that was never more true than in the CW series REAPER.  From viewers to the writers themselves, everyone's favorite character on the show was the Devil, splendidly played by Ray Wise (TWIN PEAKS, 24, SWAMP THING, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, etc. etc. etc.).  So when the show runners needed a picture to put on water bottles to be given out as gifts to the cast and crew I did this picture of the big D, congenially hawking, what else?  Cigarettes.

The cover for the book, except this wasn't done with the Corel Painter 11 but with real brushes and acrylic paint.  I was going for that old Gold-Key comic cover look -- Boris Karloff Presents, etc., with cheesy cover paintings that didn't match the artwork inside at all.  I did this before I changed the title to TWELVE o'Clock Somewhere from FIVE, as midnight is the betwitching hour and Five isn't very spooky at all.

And sharp-eyed followers of this blog will recognize the doomed myopic bird from an earlier post shown here as the Comic Co. logo.
