Seals & Finnegan: New Cover Artists for Knightingail Vol. 2, Shadow Divisions
Hey Knightingail fans, we got an exclusive for you!
Wayne Gardiner of Crucidel Productions is pleased to announce that Nathan Seals and Kate Finnegan have been contracted to produce comic book covers for Knightingail Volume 2: Shadow Divisions. Nathan Seals was chosen as penciller because of his fantastic fairy tale like artwork which can be seen on his website at http://www.nathanscomicart.com/. Kate Finnegan was selected due to her recent stint as colorist on Gardiner’s other creator-owned comic book series, CrossStar, where she colored the last two issues of the mini-series, issues #6 and #7. She was also chosen due to the amazing talent she displayed on several Big Dog Ink comic book series such as Critter and Legend of Oz.
Big Dog Ink and Wayne Gardiner announced in late 2012 that Big Dog Ink would be publishing all future Knightingail comic books under its imprint. The first of these publications was the Knightingail Vol. 1 trade paperback just recently released in stores in late December. This first trade paperback collects all 6-issues of the first Knightingail comic book series, The Legend Begins.
As an extra special benefit to Knightingail fans, Wayne Gardiner and Big Dog Ink will be releasing a limited edition, variant of the Knightingail: Vol. 1 Trade paperback with the first ever Seals and Finnegan cover artwork (cover image shown). This absolutely breathtaking cover features Knightingail and Kaeli demonstrating their incredible battle skills in a cover simply called The Knightingirls. The image provides an early taste of the fantastic artwork that fans will be in store for when they collaborate on 6 additional covers for the next mini-series, Shadow Divisions. This variant trade paperback will be available for sale at the Amazing Arizona Comic Convention 2013 and then on-line at the Knightingail (www.Knightingail.com) and Big Dog Ink stores until the limited edition is sold out. The regular edition of the Knightingail trade is available now and features an amazing cover by the wonderful artist Nei Ruffino.
Knightingail: Shadow Divisions is the next 6-issue Knightingail series which will pick up immediately following the events of The Legend Begins. In this story, Knightingail and the other Centurion heroes must deal with the stresses of war and a new allusive enemy called the Shadow Ravens. Big Dog Ink and Wayne Gardiner will announce a firm release date for the series once all the artistic talent has been put in place for the series. Nathan Seals and Kate Finnegan, are just the first two amazing illustrators to be named. As you can see from their debut cover, you can expect their work on future Knightingail covers to be truly remarkable.
