Fellow Columbusite and friend-of-the-ferret Uko Smith has a graphic novel out from IDW. It’s called FX2: The Lost Land, and it’s a sequel to the FX mini-series written by Wayne Osborne and drawn by John Byrne. Uko handles the art chores in this book, and from the previews that I’ve seen, it looks great.
The blog at Comic Book Resources has a review of the book, and they have this to say about Uko’s work:
“It’s also fantastically illustrated by Uko Smith, whose work somehow marries the fascinating geometry of Larry Stroman with the more conventional attractiveness of someone like Adam Hughes. The combination is unique, which further allows The Lost Land to stand on its own and differentiate itself from its characters’ influences. And that’s vitally important.”
Originally scheduled as a 4-issue mini, IDW decided to go with it as an OGN, so I know Uko’s been working hard on this book for quite a while, without the benefit of monthly feedback. So go pick up a copy and support his work!
