The fifth Demoncon convention takes place in Maidstone on 17th March and as has become tradition some of the UK’s best indy comic artists have gotten together to produce bespoke posters. This year however the posters feature somebody that fans of the bunker may be a little familiar with.
The first is this amazing bit of work from Grant Perkins with Inks by Tom Schloendorn and colours by Nadine Ashworth. There is no way I’m not buying one of these when I get to the con, it’s an amazing bit of work. Grant is taking commissions at the moment so get hold of him on twitter if you want a fine piece like this in your home.
The second poster comes courtesy of Phil Buckenham and is all the more amazing for the fact that he did pencils, inks and colours by himself. It’s another great bit of art and Moon seems very happy with the company he’s in. Just look at his beaming face.
The real question is, of course, how many of the characters in both posters can you name?
Bingo Mole is the affectionate term that we’ve applied to the villains you saw at the end of Moon #1. It’s not their real name but if we told you that we’d both spoil the story and not get to use the awesome phrase that is “Bingo Moles”.
Now that we’ve explained that little detail, proceed to feast your eyes on some brand new preview art for the upcoming second issue of Moon. It’s all kicking off and the Moles are right in the middle of it! Pencils and inks are by Steve Penfold, colours are by Ivanna Matilla.
The deck’s stacked against our heroes, but there’s still a wild card left to play.
A hero falls, another rises and an astral body grows a beard!
It’s all in the facemeltingly exciting second issue of MOON!
Moon 2 is on it’s way folks!! We will try to make sure that updates are here every Monday from now on – though this is difficult to maintain so there are no spoilers – and what spoilers there could be!! Remember of course that Moon is currently at the mercy of the mysterious Bingo Mole soldiers and the mercenary killer that has shot Ray. Electrocuted, weakened and surrounded Moon will of course try to make his escape. However, will it go to plan? For starters he needs his car and it looks like it’s being nicked by a certain Shades Rodriguez….
Stay tuned to Beyond the Bunker on Mondays for the Moon face’s return… he’s coming back and we hope you’re looking forward to it as much as we are…
P.S. These are draft pencil and ink work and mock lettering – not the final look of the panel… just so you know…
All those looking bereft at your copy of Issue 1 and all those afraid for the future of our hero following the cliffhanger of Issue 1, fear not – for Issue 2 is on its way. Page 1, Issue 2 is here to take a look at. As you can see – no much has changed in the life of Moon but it’s going to. Watch this space for more previews of Issue 2 (not too many though – as there’s some major spoilers on pretty much every page).
It’s just so damn good to be drawing him again.
Here’s an awesome video by Crystal Method that kinda represents how I see the Moon universe at night in my head, gothic, city landscapes clearly depicted, populated by the odd and the unlikely and looked out over by a fatherly, slightly abstract Moon. Sent to me on Deviant from good street artist Dev buddy of mine work-is-play (head here to check out his street art) in response to the art below. Ohhh yeeeeeah!
Moon it up!!
