Mimetic Poly-alloy


Here's a little "behind-the-scenes" for ya. The first image is the final pencil version of a page from #26. The second image is what I had drawn originally. In the script, Peter had written "flat like a spear" to describe her hand. Since Jaz is a shape-shifter, I mistakenly thought he was making a reference to TERMINATOR 2, so that's how I drew it. He was actually asking for a good, old-fashioned "spear hand" or "kwan soo" from martial arts, to illustrate how badass our girl Jaz was.

Also notice that I'd screwed up and drawn pants on She-Hulk in the last panel, originally... Thankfully, he caught that, too.

I was moving pretty fast when I did this page, but ultimately, it had some stuff I really dug. Favorite parts of this page include the cold look on Jazinda's face when she impales him and then panel 3 when she walks past the soaking wet, stunned Jen and tells her "I'll be in the car." Oh, and Jaz's hand on his shoulder in panel 1.

Jaz turned stone-cold at the end of that issue. You certainly did a good job showing that. It makes you think twice about trusting her, I tells ya.

And how dare you draw pants on She-Hulk!? :)
