Original Art: Bulletproof Coffin Commission by Shaky Kane

So, again with the short post, sorry about that (if anyone cares) …

A while ago, I ordered a couple of commissions from Shaky Kane (one intended as a present and the one below), and who am I not to share it with the Internet. My only request was to have the Coffin Fly and the Unforgiving Eye, then giving good old Shaky absolute freedom to do whatever he wanted. The result was impressive, fast and way better than I was expecting.

Here’s the original that’s now waiting for an appropriate frame back at home:

He even scanned and colored it because he’s that nice:

Now I spend my days thinking about ways to get some money and order more …

Endless coffin

So, we here at Fanthoman HQ have been decontextualizing and putting panels out of order since we were kids and then did it digitally with Mandrake strips.

It was not until this morning, however, that I thought about using the same script with a story that was expressly conceived with that treatment in mind … So this morning I contacted David Hine to ask for his permission to do it and got it done.

Nice people of the Internet, join me in thanking Mr Hine and Mr Kane 2000 for giving us Bulletproof Coffin Disinterred #4 as it was supposed to be read.

As a bonus, here is a sketch done by the very nice David Hine in the Lille Comics Festival back in 2010:
