I thought you might like to see some of Rob Carey’s character sketches from the upcoming Band of Butchers being written by Dan Thompson. Rob has stressed these are ‘early sketches’ and his first take on the characters. If you’ve read Fallen Heroes then Clancy, Stony and Kelly will be familiar names to you and I think Rob has already captured them brilliantly even at this early stage. I keep thinking that this like all the other spin off is going to be one pretty comic when it’s finished.
Seeing these in my inbox was certainly a great way to start off a Wednesday.
So another happy day for me as I get to show off another little piece of tasty art from one of the upcoming spin off comics. In this case an early character sketch from artist Rob Carey, who is working on the spin off ‘Band of Butchers’ centered on mercenary Clancy Wallencheck.
The fact Rob knocked this fantastic sketch up in this lunch break should give you some idea of the standard of art you can expect from this project.
Clancy Wallencheck is a very bad man – the commander of an elite team that have nothing to live for and a whole lot of people to kill.
From the mountains of Pakistan to the waters of Venice, there have been a thousand corpses in Clancy’s life.
This is the story of the one that mattered.
