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, itís 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!
There is also a dedicated tumblr blog right here: www.berepossessed.tumblr.com
The coloring is interesting, an I like that you have some strong lines without to much black.
I do feel, however, that some of the pages seem a bit cramped.
I'd be interested in seeing more.
-An endless voyager...
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!

One little new preview. One new panel from Chapter 3.
I give you the Senator!
Another art preview. A panel from Chapter 3.
I have to keep certain things under wraps at the moment so I'm showing more low-key moody scenes rather than all-out action. This will come later, I promise.
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
Good work, keep it going - Would like to see more
Thanks Johnny Panic.
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).
What about a little bit of action?
Deep in the Everglades...
From Chapter 3, an action scene starting!
More coming soon.
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.
Here we go:
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.
Here it is:
You can preorder Repossessed Issue #1 starting NOv 1st from your favorite comic shop. The Diamond preorder code is: NOV120454
And here is the nice 2 pages spotlight spread Image got for Repossessed in the Diamond Previews catalog.
Remember to ask your comic shop to preorder it now!
So at last REPOSSESSED #1 is in all good comic shops (yes even outside of North America!) and on Comixology if you prefer digital versions or can't get to a shop (it looks great on iPad by the way).

In the meantime here is one new preview page:
Hey guys, so Issue #3 of my comic Repossessed is out March 6 from Image, in all places where you can buy comics printed or digital and I wanted to share the art for the cover with you. A little bit of the old sex and violence I guess. Here it goes:
