Sometimes work just calls out to you. While stolling Artist’s Alley at HeroesCon this year, I saw a poster for Brandon Dayton’s inaugural book for his character The Green Monk. I am a sucker for two-color work and those who grasp it’s use — and Brandon nailed it with the cover.
The best news is, in a few short pages (one-panel each), Brandon weaves a tight story of the titular Monk’s encounter with a very large ogre and his haunted weapon. With sparse dialogue and no sweeping spreads, the story moves along and leaves you eager to know more about the Monk. Which is what every good story should do.
