Official Press Release
Months ago, Patrick Scherberger rose above a legion of competitors to become
the first ever “Comic Book Idol.” One reward for winning
ComicBookResources.com’s contest — in addition to having industry pros (and
thousands of fans) view his work — was the opportunity to illustrate a
short story for publication in a CrossGen comic book…and Patrick’s time
Written by Ron Marz (who also helped judge the competition), inked by Jason
Keith & Dave Lanphear, and colored by Wil Quintana, the six-page story
offered Scherberger the chance to deliver clear storytelling, big widescreen
visuals and plenty of characterization…not to mention cool samurai stuff!
And if you’re looking for more samurai action, the lead story (by Marz,
artist Mark Pennington and colorist Andrew Crossley) features the second
half of the collision between Obo-san and WAY OF THE RAT’s Boon & Po Po!
So if you’re curious to see who was crowned the first “Comic Book Idol” —
and want to be there for the beginning of his career — pick up THE PATH #22
on Feb. 11th!
And don’t miss J. Torre’s interview with Scherberger and Marz in this week’s
“Open Your Mouth” column at ComicBookResources.com!
