Tarantino Comics - Issue 11

At last year's MegaCon (2010), I met Orlando artist Danielle Soloud, as she drew some awesome pieces in my themed sketchbooks. Since then, I've been following her webcomic, Life With Death, where she had an awesome spin-off called Sai O’Nara. It in the style of exploitation films, it features a female ninja assassin born from a Japanese vampire mother and an Irish werewolf father.

After seeing Sai O’Nara, I knew I wanted Danielle to draw the next issue of Tarantino Comics. Knowing her commission list got pretty full last year, I contacted Danielle beforehand and asked her to draw my next piece so it would be ready for pickup at the beginning of the con. So for those of you who have waited patiently for the next cover, it's my pleasure to present Tarantino Comics #11, drawn by Danielle Soloud.

Inspired from Pulp Fiction, Danielle made a homage to the old EC Comic Covers, where they circled featured characters on the side of the cover. So instead of the Crypt Keeper, the Old Witch, and the Vault Keeper, Danielle replaced them with Vincent, Lance, and Jody. Danielle perfectly captures the moment of the adrenaline shot scene with each character's facial expression. And Jody's comment is priceless!

So if you would like to see more beautifully drawn women (as you can see, Danielle even draws a gorgeous OD'ing Mia Wallace), check out her blog at http://dsoloud.blogspot.com/and her webcomic Life With Death at http://www.lifewithdeath.com/.
