Green Hornet #3 Cover. 2013.
Ink(ed by Joe Rivera) on bristol board, 11 × 17″.
This issue of Green Hornet came out earlier in the month, but I never got a chance to post the preliminary work or reference used. You can see a preview of the comic here. (I just received my comp copies, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet.) Aside from the photos of myself, I was looking at plenty of pics of fedoras — I've gotten much better at them after 8 covers. The signs are based on Citizen Kane, which served as inspiration for Waid's story. Lastly, the lettering was done in Photoshop as a smart object, allowing me to draw the poster once and place it wherever needed.
