As you can see below, work continues quite nicely on the Lego Ganesh strip.
I've seen the first four pages of Stephen Prestwoods' art for the ongoing Ganesh tale and it looks just as fantastic as his last episode.
Steven Denton is back onboard for the third issue in a row to colour the cover (and if you have seen the work he has done with 2000AD regular PJ Holden, you'll know I regard this as quite a coup!).
And the page layouts are all done for the next episode of We're On Our Way to Wembley . At this rate, the new issue could be out by Christmas. You lucky people!

New review of #4

Ed Kaye over at Hypergeek has just posted a review of PARAGON 4 on his site

with some nice comments;

Ganesh - This story is hilarious! Issue two also sees Stephen Prestwood take over artwork chores from Dave Candlish. Prestwood bring a much more professional look to the book, and really helps to shake off the manga influence, giving the book a much more unique look

Undertow - This was a pretty interesting story, and had the feel of a good Terror Tale 2000 AD. I’m pretty interested to see where this one goes!

Wembley - Dave Candlish’s artwork on the strip is pretty basic, but he definitely has style!

And overall, this is still a solid collection that had tons of great stories and artwork. Battle Ganesh is probably my favourite strip out of them all, and as a series is packed full of potential

Who am I to argue?

PARAGON #5 cover?

I was all set in my mind to go with Julian Ruby as the cover star for issue 5 - the hitman who's as quick with a quip as he is with his gun, when I sat down with a pencil last night and drew this.

An aged, battle scarred Ganesh - quite a catching image.

Now I'm torn - do I ink this up, or stick with my original plan? What do you think?

Lego Ganesh - Building up nicely!

(Did you see what I did there with the title? Lego? Building? Never mind)
Just to prove I don't spend all Sunday morning sitting on the sofa in my underpants watching Babylon 5 DVDs, here's proof of what I've been working on today.
Is it genetically modified Russian sprinter, Igo Zoominoff?
Nope, it's my usual scruffy pencil work on Ganesh's latest nemesis - Deathwheel!
Now it's just a case of inking and tidying, and we're done. Stephen Prestwood has also got his script for the next episode of the Ganesh and his Gang in Space storyline and should be hard at work on that (although knowing Mr P, he's probably on Facebook doing another quiz, instead of at the drawing board), so it's all coming along nicely. If it keeps up at this pace, PARAGON 5 should be out for Christmas - so don't forget to tell Santa what you want in your stocking! (Although I'm going to ask for Monica Bellucci in mine - you never know your luck)
