Notorious banners & wallpapers

The amazing Tim Daniel was kind enough to create some web banners and wallpapers based on NOTORIOUS, the new back-up feature that will run throughout DYNAMO 5: SINS OF THE FATHER. And when I say "kind enough," I mean Tim demanded that he be allowed to create them! I make it a point never to turn down a man with a plan, so here we are:


Dynamo 5: Sins of the Father #2 cover

I really shouldn't reveal these covers so far ahead of the solicitations, but damn ... if you got this cover in your inbox, would you be able to just sit on it?

By Mahmud A. Asrar and Ron Riley, as always.

DYNAMO 5: SINS OF THE FATHER is going to feature a back-up series called NOTORIOUS that will run in all five issues. It's five pages each issue, so that makes it a 25-page story in all. I've been writing short back-up stories ever since the original Noble Causes series, and I enjoy them. It's a fun writing challenge to tell a story in such a short span of pages, and in the case of Notorious, it's a serialized story which has its own unique challenges and rewards. On one hand, I don't have to wrap everything up at the end of five pages, but on the other hand, I have to have a compelling cliffhanger each chapter.
Joining me on this project are Joe Eisma (artist), Paul Little (colorist), and Charles Pritchett (letterer). Because of the small amount of pages in each chapter, I don't want to spoil too much of it, so I'm only showing one page as a teaser, but I think it's a good one.
DYNAMO 5: SINS OF THE FATHER will be on sale in June.
