Doug Braithwaite drew six issues of The Punisher in 1992. It was a story called 'Eurohit', where he followed the Kingpin to Europe and shot a bunch of bad guys during his pursuit. I loved Doug's pencils because they were vibrant and drawn tight! These 3 pages are from issue 70 of The Punisher.

I find all sorts of images as I search through magazines. As I do, I see the ways photographers communicate to the reader. I have noticed that some photographers put their subjects on top of a building near the ledge, and some have them walking ON the ledge. Why? It's to convey danger or recklessness. If it's woman on the ledge, it could be to show passion or fearlessness. I think in the case of James McAvoy, shown in the center, It may be just a bad decision. He looks a little scared!

All of the comic book websites are paying tribute to the wonderful John Severin. He passed away earlier this week. I am also a great fan of his work but I never met him in person. I did get to look at his art close up when I worked for Marvel. I made some copies of the work he did for 'The 'Nam' He was a great illustrator who will be missed.
