Anthony Hon's Barry

The Adventures of Barry the Benevolent Ninja by my good friend Anthony Hon. What started out as a fun excercise for him turned into a full blown one-shot comic! I was honored that he asked me to do the cover and left it completely up to me on what to do. This is what I came up with and thankfully, he loved it. My goal here was 3 things. 1) Make it simple and striking. 2) Tell the reader about what makes Barry different. 3) Pay an homage to the old 80's ninja films.









I had fun doing it and Anthony told me that the printed cover is looking good. Barry will be sold at the Sturdy Comics table at San Diego Comic-Con which happens July 23 - 27, 2008. I don't have the table number as of yet, but as soon as I do, I will post it here. I also made a link to the Comic-Con website in the top left corner of the blog next to the "Home" and "About Me" links.
