Tarantino Comics - Issue 41

Since my wonderful girlfriend is keeping tally, we only have 10 more days until our trip to California! As we continue our countdown to the SDCC, I present Tarantino Comics #41 illustrated by Aaron Campbell at Heroes Con 2013.

Utilizing only grey scales, Aaron created a terrific rendition of Zoe Bell holding on for dear life atop a 1970 Dodge Challenger.  With the simple swipes of a brush, we're able to visualize the kinetic energy of our heroines playing Ship's Mast during Death Proof.  Aaron displays his storytelling techniques by drawing the scene from a lower perspective, allowing this "Vanishing Point Car" to drive out of the page.  In addition to choosing a great image, Aaron has an eye for detail and line-work by showing the slick contours of both the car and our lovable stunt woman.

If you think Aaron's art looks like something from an old crime strip, you would not be wrong.  Aaron has done a lot of fantastic work at Dynamite Entertainment, illustrating titles such as The Shadow, Green Hornet, and Dark Shadows.  So if you get a chance, go to your local comic shop and pick up some old back issues or trades.  In the meantime, you can catch more glimpses of Aaron's work on his Twitter Account at
