Sweet! A cover image from Concrete Park Vol.2: R-E-S-P-E-C-T is featured in this week’s “Best Art Ever (This Week)” column in Comics Alliance. Drawn by Concrete Park artist and co-creator Tony Puryear, the image features Isaac™ and Luca™, the series’ two leads, locked in a bloody, post-combat embrace.
“It’s a real honor to be featured in this week’s “Best Art Ever”, Puryear said. “To be included with heavyweights (and friends) like Francesco Francavilla and Afua Richardson, not to mention Dark Horse stablemate Phil Noto and comics legend Walt Simonson is also very humbling.”
Concrete Park is the new graphic novel series from Dark Horse Comics. The series is written by actress Erika Alexander, star of Living Single, The Cosby Show and the new #The BFF Chronicles with Erika Alexander and Kim Coles. Puryear handles penciling, inking and coloring chores.
Concrete Park Vol.2: R-E-S-P-E-C-T is the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to the series’ award-winning first volume, which was selected as one of The Best American Comics, 2013. The new book is in comics shops April 29th, 2015, and is available now for pre-order from Amazon.com.
