Digital comics are great and all, but here is where paper has a clear advantage…FULL PAGE SPREADS!

Yes, spreading eagle is always in fashion in my book!

So here is Gates, Heavy Metal Magazine’s first online comic–pages 26 & 27, as a full page spread…


I really wanted to get fun and creative with the design of the panels. I felt like this gave me a nice cinematic feel and I was thinking ahead to when this book is actually printed. Also nothing beats the smell of an old comic book. AND also nothing beats the feel of those old newsprint pages. I originally come from a print background in magazine publishing, packaging etc, so I’m partial to the printed page. Always will be.

Enjoy! And thanks for all of the love! I’m very grateful to all of my fans and friends!

Viva Gates!
