"It's in incredible thing for me to see TELLOS out in the public eye again-- even if I'm not the one drawing the stories (sniff.....)," says the artist."But I DID get to draw the covers, and it brought all those wonderfulfeelings flooding back that I felt when I was drawing our first story arc.Working with Todd on TELLOS was the high-water mark of my comics career, andit's a blast that our characters are out there again. I'm hoping a newgroup of readers will discover TELLOS-- and that long-time fans will enjoythese stories as well."
