Jerome Opeña’s Rusted Lung Sketchbook

Published on October 26th, 2010

A few weeks back I was talking with Todd Harris, local comic book artist, about how great Jerome Opeña’s artwork was looking in Uncanny X-Force. And we all know we are all big fans of Jerome Opeña, here at Comicimpact. Well, he got the chance to meet Jerome a few years back before his work on Moon Knight and Punisher.

He was lucky and got one of his early sketchbooks, “Rusted Lung.” Then a few days later Todd brought this Sketchbook in. It feels more like a heavy metal comic from the 1970’s and a very do it your self feel to it. It looks like it was done on a notebook. I only had my cell phone with me but I did not want to miss the chance of show you guys this one of kind artwork. So I took a few photos of Rusted Lung.

This is something I am very happy that I got a chance to see up close.  If you would like to win a copy of Uncanny X-Force #1 signed by Jerome Opeña make sure to enter the 2010 ComicImpact Halloween Costume Contest.
