Between 1994 and 1998 I earned a steady stream of work in comics. By the time I did this story I felt like I actually knew what I was doing, and it still remains one of my favorite pieces of published work.
Unfortunately in order for me to maintain the consistency and quality of comic book art I demanded of myself, I needed increasingly longer deadlines.
But comics don't pay enough to spend weeks or even months on a single short story or issue, so I had to move on to full-time illustration and concept art to pay the bills. And my comic work from 1998 onward became increasingly infrequent until it ended in 2008 with my Little Amsterdam story in Comic Book Tattoo.
I'd love to do comics again someday if the timing, project, and financial aspects are in alignment. Until them I'm focusing on doing the best illustration work I can, which is fulfilling in it's own way, but still not quite the same as this wonderful graphic storytelling medium.
Demon Hunter Crossing was published as an eight page glossy introduction to the RPG book Demon Hunter X, part of the Kindred of the East branch of White Wolf's World of Darkness universe.
The entire book, including this comic was written by novelist James A. Moore, and the book cover was painted by comic wiz Duncan Fegredo.
