On the odd chance somebody stumbles in here, this is where I'm storing the art references for development at THRILLBENT COMICS, the web-based comice site started by Mark Waid and myself a few months ago.  Thrillbent -- available for free at -- is an experiment for creating long-form comics formatted wide-screen and distributed solely through digital means.  

Basically, we're spot-welding the long-form storytelling style and page-construction of traditional comics with the narrative experimentation of Balak01 (his profile's here on Deviantart) and the very successful business model of the weekly three-panel web artists.  We freely admit this is nothing new or groundbreaking, but we're trying to synthesize the influences with a single goal in mind: creating a model which allows people who want to tell a story in comics to be able to do so digitally, make enough money doing it to pay the bills, and not have to screw about with third-party distributors (well, more than necessary).  There are only 2000 comic shops in America, millions of screens worldwide, and readers worldwide.  Having to cough up the scratch to front a limited print run just to get your story out to those few folks in the 22-page pamphlet business seems very, well, last century.

Thrillbent itself will have a Deviantart Account up soon. Make sure you swing by there for promo art, previews of our upcoming titles, and to tell us if you think you have a story and art that would make sense for Thrillbent.  Thrillbent's all about empowering the talent, and there's an almost limitless pool of talent here on Deviantart.
