Day 2 of Marc’s break means more extra stuff from just me! Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve drawn Zurida (and Raptor X, but he’s newer). I’ve inked her, but I’ve never pencilled her until now. It helped me to really appreciate the amazing design artist Rossana Bugini came up with. It’s filled with all sorts of little touches that you might not notice unless you really dig in there. She’s basically a blast to draw.

Anybody else watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? How are you liking it? I dig seeing the Marvel Universe on my TV screen, but the show feels a bit inert to me right now… and it looks so, so cheap. I know there’s a lot of money going into it, but compare the cinematography of S.H.I.E.L.D. with something like the new The Tomorrow People and you can’t help but wonder how the heck a CW show is outclassing an ABC show so badly. I trust in Whedon’s team and I gotta think they’ll work out the characters and the by-the-numbers storytelling soon, but right now it’s a bit–dare I say it?–boring.
