My comic miniseries/graphic novel REPOSSESSED is coming out later this year from a big indie US publisher and I wanted to share some info about it. It's a story in 4 chapters that I'm writing, drawing, coloring and lettering, and it's the best thing I have ever done.
Here are some sneak peeks:
What is the book about?
REPOSSESSED is the high octane full-on action horror story of the professionals who take care of your inner demons!
One part dark Buddy Comedy, one part epic Demonic Battles, and one part high-stakes Action Thriller, it’s an explosive cocktail of mayhem and excitement!
Demons from Hell are illegally crossing into our world possessing unsuspecting citizens, bankers, ministers, politicians, and that guy at the comicshop, stealing their bodies for their own nefarious purposes. That's when the Dee Agency gets down and dirty: Joe, Clay and Martha, seasoned repo agents will get to work for a fee, repossessing the bodies of the victims and sending back those Demons where they came from!
I will be updating this thread with new art regularly. The most difficult thing for independent US comics is to make readers aware they exist so I hope that if you like what you see you will help spread the word far and away. Repossessed is not just a comic for comic fans, it's for anybody who likes a good fast-paced thrilling story with some humor and a lot of explosive action. And if you like demons I guarantee you will like this!
Yes I agree about the cramped comment because that's totally what I'm going for, I like densely packed art and lots of details, the general messiness of life put on the page. If nothing else that gives the eye a lot of things to look at: density.
Keep following this thread I will post more art!

Really like the coloring style. Very unique. Perspectives and forms could do with a little work but nothing that a little patience won't help That kind of stuff is tricky at the best of times, especially when going full steam on a comic
I was planning to post another page so here it is:
As before not a lot of action because I'm trying to keep the important beats under wraps for now but I'll be showing more actiony stuff soon. In the meantime some talking with crazy car perspective (and it wasn't easy to plot either).
Well it's about time to reveal some Demon for Repossessed.
Here is GLASYA LABOLAS, Mighty President of Hell in charge of 36 legions!
The book is all about fighting Demons and kicking them back to Hell, and as you can see it's not an easy task.
All the demons in Repossessed are inspired from authentic occult books and the well-known illustrations from the Dictionnaire Infernal written by Collin de Plancy. A lot of effort has been put in trying to recreate the look of those incredible but rarely seen monsters. Mike Mignola has drawn a few in Hellboy but this is my version.
It's now official REPOSSESSED is being published by IMAGE Comics and the first issue will be out January 9 2013!
That means you can preorder it at your comicshop starting right about now. The book is displayed in the special Spotlight section for Image. It will also be available in digital format on the same day from Comixology on many platforms.
I put together a trailer for Youtube where you can have an idea of what the comic is about as well as a sneak peek of Issue #1.
