I't's like "Cheers Goes to Hell". Love the amount of work in this.

Geez, there's a lot of bloody work in that! Impressive cause I know it's hard when you have so many people to consider in the one image with regards to proportion and placing.

Thanks, it did take a lot of work - I think I spent 3 weeks to a month on it! ;)

I made sure to do it nice and big so I could put in all the detail that I wanted. Bars are fun to draw!

Cool take on zombies (are they zombies?). Just read issue 1 and the partial issue 2 (yes! bicycles!), and I'm caught :)

Thank you much! Yeah, these are a variation on zombies (not undead per se, more like "28 Days Later" types from an infection).

New pages should be up every week or two, thanks for watching! :)

Fantastic work, Chris. I love the background, and having the book title as part of the decoration is a terrific idea.

Thank you mucho! I'm pretty proud of the cover. I decided to put the bar's name (the bar that is their 'base' is also called "Portland Underground" on the carved wooden overhang, one reason being that I could do exactly that on the cover.

Do you use just a brush, or a combo of brush and pen? (which is what I do)

Just a brush, it's the most comfortable for me.

If I only had one tool it would be a fine sable brush.

Thanks! It took a long ass time (a lot of the detail is because it's HUGE), but I'm pretty pleased with it.

Fantastic cover. I really do love your line work, and this shows how good you control pen and paper.
