So if you couldn’t make it in to a Barnes & Noble this past weekend to grab the admittedly-cooler physical version, you can still get your copy HERE. (The download link for the PDF is right below the cover image.)

Graphic Novel Collaborators: Introducing Andy MacDonald and Ivan Brandon

As we’ve been releasing character sketches from the upcoming The Way of Shadows graphic novel, I’ve been working with two very talented artists on the script and illustrations. The process has been fun and more than a little creatively and intellectually challenging, but I’ve been consistently impressed by the caliber of their work, so I wanted to share a little more about them–and maybe lead you to some other projects you’ll enjoy:

Ivan BrandonIVAN BRANDON writes for a number of different entertainment mediums, among them film, animation and video games. He is arguably best known for his work in American comic books, where his scripts have been published by every major US publisher with translations all over the world.  He lives in New York City. You can follow Ivan on twitter via @IvanBrandon.


andy-bio-grey00ANDY MACDONALD is a veteran comic book artist who has worked with virtually every major comic book publishing house and was one of the co-creator’s of the series NYC Mech. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.  You can follow him on twitter via @andymacdeez.

 Here’s some illustrations Andy did for the graphic novel Zoo, by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. (Click to embiggen)

And HERE’s a little project he did for fun with Marvel characters re-envisioned as high-fashion models.
