February Previews:

I have a comic book and a graphic novel in this month’s Previews catalog (which hits shelves today)! Look for my name on pages 232 & 271!

FUBAR: AMERICAN HISTORY Z is a historical fiction anthology…with zombies.  Ander Sarabia (BLACKEST TERROR) illustrated my contribution.  It’s “Certified Cool” by Diamond (whatever that means).

LEGEND OF OZ: WICKED WEST #7 is a fantasy/western/steampunk comic starring Jack Pumpkinhead (who inspired the character “Jack, The Pumpkin King” in Nightmare Before Christmas).previews fubar ww72 ww7

Dig on this Blackest Terror pin-up Pharoah Bolding!

“Eric Esquivel’s The Blackest Terror.

The Blackest Terror is easily one of my favorite concepts of the last five years. Take the classic public domain character The Black Terror and add some urban flair, street sense, and a need to fight bigots and racists and you get one of the more fun vigilantes I’ve seen in comics in recent memory!

My boy Samax Amen (check his work out at [http://samax.deviantart.com/ ) is the artist for the next issue of The Blackest Terror (and from what I’ve seen he’s gonna absolutely kill it!) but I have to admit that I SO wanna draw this character in action!

So this is my audition piece! Eric, if you ever have a Blackest Terror back-up story or pin-up you need drawn drop me a line and I will make time!

For the record: the year hasn’t even begun yet, and I’ve got SEVENTEEN BOOKS scheduled.  I am infinitely happy about that.  My goal was to land twelve (a book a month)–so if I don’t get any work next year, I’m still a fuggin’ champion at life.
