Elektra Lives Again! by Mike Hawthorne

Elektra Lives Again...and again...

The ninjas that go up against her?...not so much.


The amazing Nathan Fairbain colored the piece, and I swear the man can read minds! He's so spot on it's scary!

Thanks, Nate!

Thanks, Mike! No telepathy required, though -- it was all there on the page. I was just picking up what you were laying down.

Really, really great illustration, Mike.

Totally bad ass! I'd love to see you drawing an Elektra book. You have the experience with fiery Greek women already!

Dan C said...

yeah... sucks to be a ninja when Elektra's around. Great job, Mike. Love the little details on the folds of clothing and the sharp linework, and Nathan's colors are fantastic. Congratulations to both of you on a job well done.

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Nathan - Well, it's rad - mind reading or no. We gotta get Joe Q. to let us redo the whole book! ;-)

Dan P. - Indeed! Only my wife woulda' used her bare hands!

Dan C. - Thanks, pal! It's awesome being able to toss the lineart to a guy that will"get it" immediately and make it shine! Gotta love Comic Twart!

Hope you'r well :)

This is gorgeous work you guys. I'll admit I've read little with Elektra in it but I'd eagerly pick up this book.

Thanks fellas!

Evan, me neither. JUST Elektra Lives Again. It's the only you gotta read :)

This may be my favorite Mike Hawthorne drawing ever! It's like you were born to draw Elektra.

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Wow, thanks man! I really would love the shit out of an Elektra LIVES remake :-)
