Abby Goes Candle Crazy

Many thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy 70th Birthday earlier this week. All that love was wonderful and made me feel young–no more than 69!

Abby’s “Dream” Date

The Abby Amour miniseries runs every Friday. Dialogue by Tony Isabella with repurposed art by Frank Frazetta. If you’ve missed some episodes, no problem. You can catch find them here using the links below the original art.

Sue Daigle-Leach!

I’m very excited to announce that Sue Daigle-Leach will be coloring the dream sequence panels of the Abby Amour series. (Get a better look at her art below.)

Nominated for both Eisner and Harvey awards, Sue is probably best known to fans for her work coloring classic Disney comics by Barks, Van Horn, Jippes, Rosa and so many others. And, yes, I’m among those lucky Disney “others” whose stories Sue has colored.

Sue has been coloring funny animal Disney comics since the 1980s. And at first she told me that “these [Last Kiss panels] are the first non-cartoony humans I’ve colored [professionally], unless you want to count that one Barks story where he gave his human characters actual human faces [in the story “Dangerous Disguise.”]

But then she thought and added: “Oh, and I did color a couple of limited series titles for Todd McFarlane…There was a human kid in that one!”

Okay, so we don’t quite have a first here. But close.

If you want to spend a few pleasant moments, Sue’s Instagram site has lots of her personal colored art–much of it featuring wildlife. And to know more about Sue, here’s her wikipedia page.

A better look at Sue’s coloring–sans my lettering.
