WARLOCK 5 - Machine Gun Priestess by NicolasRGiacondino WARLOCK 5 - Machine Gun Priestess by NicolasRGiacondino
Happy Thor's Day, folks!

While the purpose of my posts is usually to display my artwork for you to enjoy, today I bring you not only that (I hope!) but also a chance to support an amazing upcoming project from the publisher I'm working for, Ragnarok Publications.

WARLOCK 5 is a comic written by acclaimed Marvel writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool, Uncanny X-Men) and drawn by the fabulous Jeffrey Edwards, with colors by our very own pixelisedmind, being kickstarted as we speak: WARLOCK 5 Kickstarter! 
But that's not even the best part; the best part is that it is based upon the 80s cult-classic from Aircel by Gordon Derry and Denis Beauvais, an absolute groundbreaking endeavor at the time that inspired many artists and creators like me when we first laid eyes upon it. In keeping with the themes of the times, the story had five Guardians from different dimensions converging on earth to protect The Grid, the portal holding reality together. Guess where was their battleground? Yeah, our one and only Earth :D A shapeshifting Dragon, a killer AI, a knight from a medieval world and a crazy, punk-rock necromancer priestess are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this tale. What more can you ask for? An updated, modern version? You got it! That's what you'll get when supporting the campaign as well as many other goodies listed there of course.
But if you're still not convinced, then there's the above image involving the aforementioned gun-toting punk necromancer Zania by yours truly which is the first of a five-piece set for each of the Guardians we'll be giving away as rewards for backing up the Kickstarter! 

If you know me, you know I love the 80s and especially when it comes to its classics, whether it be movies, music or comics. So being able to illustrate this world and these characters in absolute freedom was as cool as you can imagine! I decided to use the original designs for the characters because there's no way I could top the newest incarnations by Jeffrey; but don't take my word for it and check them yourself ;)

Take a look at the campaign and get on it if you can: every bit helps!

Thank you for the support as usual!
