Smuzz has just delivered this terrific promotional image for The Quest, which will feature in STRIP Magazine later this year.

There’s still a lot of work to be done – 12 pages are drawn so far, and I’m about to start work on the next part of the script. So far, we’ve had two fights, Smuzz has created more weird creatures than I know what to do with – all of them wonderful – and one of the major baddies has taken its first victim. There will be blood, the artist demands…

Let us know what you think!
