More Criterion...

I did a couple of other pics for those two Criterion blu-rays... Not sure if they'll be used on the sleeve or inside the cases. Both painted in Manga Studio...

Blu-Ray Covers

It's been a few years since I last drew any, but I've recently done three Blu-ray covers, two for Criterion and one for Arrow Films. I've got another two to do for Arrow in the next couple of months as well. These were all painted digitally using Manga Studio.

First, sketch, pencils and the final wraparound art for Cemetery Without Crosses, out in July from Arrow Films in the UK...

And then sketches and finished art for two films directed by Bruce Beresford, Mister Johnson and Breaker Morant, both out in September from Criterion in the US...

Both of these also feature another wraparound painting for the interior of the cases but they've not been released by Criterion yet, so I'd better not show them.

March books




MARCH 25 / 128 PAGES / FC/ M / $14.99

The best-selling crime series continues in this strikingly-designed new edition from Image.
CRIMINAL, VOL. 3: THE DEAD AND THE DYING – It's the ultimate '70s noir from the noir masters! A beautiful but damaged woman returns home with nothing but vengeance on her mind, and two best friends, one the son of the city's crime kingpin, are caught in the crossfire. BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS get experimental, with three interlinking viewpoints that tell a tragic tale.



MARCH 25 / 40 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50

BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS' best-selling series ever just keeps hitting! Charlie and his blacklisted friend Gil hunt Hollywood's back alleys for answers to Valeria Sommer's murder and cover-up, but the one man who might know something, ex-child star "Flapjack" Jones, has gone into hiding...unless he's dead in a ditch by the side of the road.

February Solicits

I've got a few things out in February...

art / cover: SEAN PHILLIPS

FEBRUARY 18 / 144 PAGES / FC / M / $14.99


LAWLESS: A story of brotherly love and hate, as Tracy Lawless finally returns home to find out who murdered his kid brother, and how much their family history has doomed them both. This is where BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS take the world they created in CRIMINAL, VOL. 1 and begin stretching the boundaries of what crime comics can be.

art / cover: SEAN PHILLIPS

FEBRUARY 25 / 120 PAGES / FC / M / $14.99

BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' newest hit series, THE FADE OUT is an epic noir set in the world of noir itself, the backlots and bars of Hollywood at the end of its Golden Era.

A movie stuck in endless reshoots, a writer damaged from the war and lost in the bottle, a dead movie star and the lookalike hired to replace her. Nothing is what it seems in the place where only lies are true. THE FADE OUT is BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS' most ambitious project yet.


FEBRUARY 25 / 40 PAGES / FC / M / $3.50

The second act of BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS’ biggest hit ever begins with a bang!

Someone knows who killed Valeria Sommers, but can our "heroes" find them without exposing themselves? And will their search lead them to answers they don't want to find?

A perfect jumping-on point for new readers, released the same day as the trade! And packed with bonus back pages articles only found in the single issues.

The issues of Hellblazer I did with Paul Jenkins twenty years ago are being collected at last. The first collection is out now, and the next will be out in January with a new cover by me...
Here's the some in progress process shots of the first Hellblazer cover I've painted since 1998. After doing a couple of digital sketches in Manga Studio, I got my paints out and did the final painting in acrylics on illustration board. The painting in about 45cm tall.
