  1. Kelsey Shannon is a force…he’s up there with the rest of his former studio mates like Cully Hamner and Brian Stelfreeze, but he’s flying under the big editors’ radar. I hope someone scoops him up quick.

  2. And that wasn’t meant as a “no more Dark Fang” comment. His art has been beautiful on the series, well worth the admission, and that cover….look at that cover! He’s been able to pull double duty with this and Crusaders. I’m just greedy and want to see more of his work and in other high profile gigs.
