His recent work can be seen on covers from Marvel’s Where Monsters Dwell and Image Comics’ Shutter.

David Petersen began his career in 2004 with the release of Voices – a self-published anthology from ComiXpress. Possessing a distinctive art style reminiscent of A.A. Milne (creator of Winnie the Pooh), Petersen has worked on such comics as The Dark Crystal, Snowy Valentine, and Muppets & Fairytales from Archaia, as well as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro-Series from IDW. His artwork also graced the cover for the 2012 Baltimore Comic-Con program, as well as the show-exclusive t-shirt. In 2008, David won the Eisner award for Best Publication for Kids (Mouse Guard Fall 1152 and Winter 1152) and Best Mouse Guard Legends of the Guard Vol. 3 #1 Main Cover by David PetersenGraphic Album – Reprint (Mouse Guard Fall 1152 Hardcover). In 2010, he was nominated for a Harvey Award for Best Artist (Mouse Guard: Winter 1152). In addition to continuing his Mouse Guard series through BOOM! Studios, David’s art graces variant covers at Action Lab Entertainment for Skyward.

Eisner award-winning Charles Vess began his freelance illustration in the 1970s after receiving a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. His early work included working on publications like Heavy Metal, Epic Comics, and National Lampoon. His art has graced both covers and interior pages at Marvel Comics (Spider-Man, Raven Banner, and Kull the Conqueror) and DC Comics (Sandman, Swamp Thing, Books of Magic, and Stardust). More recently, he has provided art on Little, Brown & Company’s The Cats of Tanglewood Forest, provided a pin-up in Locust Moon Press’s Little Nemo: Dream a Little Dream, and was featured in Dark Horse Comics’ Drawing Down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess.

Frank Cho Returns with Jungle Girl: Season Three

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that industry sensation Frank Cho will return to Jungle Girl, the comic book series that showcases Jana, a primal heroine in a prehistoric Lost World. Co-written by Doug Murray and illustrated by Jack Jadson, Jungle Girl: Season Three will debut with a new #1 issue in April 2015, featuring an explosive cover by Frank Cho.

Jungle Girl: Season Three picks up where the previous series left off, following Jana’s escape from an underwater city and a gigantic, otherworldly creature. However, her father soon reveals that those actions have doomed the Lost World in which they all live, as a wormhole appears in the sky and flaming debris begins to fall through. As the jungle burns, Jana and her friends must contend with stampeding behemoths and displaced, murderous natives. Furthermore, the rift presents a new, fearsome threat, for the fire from an alien dimension was not the only thing to come through.

Jungle Girl: Season Three #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February 2015 Previews catalog and slated for release in April.
