Marvel Comics and Me

Some of my blog readers may know that my dad, Dan McConnell, inked Marvel Comics in the 90s, including X-Men #1 (thepizzahutedition).  I worked on a few Marvel issues a couple years ago as an assistant (either assisting with background pencils or background inks), but never credited.  However, this time assisting Karl Kesel on background inks for Fearless Defenders #4AU I will receive my first credit in a Marvel comic for some of my inking, further establishing me as a “chip off the old block.”  I was hoping to get a glimpse of what the colorist did with the inks and today I was rewarded with this Preview on CBR.  I had a hand in only two of the preview pages there, the rest of the credit goes to the extraordinary talents of Karl Kesel and the colorist, who appears to be unlisted in the preview.  Phil Jimenez, the penciler, had something to do with it, too, and of course the writer Cullen Bunn.  Anyway, check out that preview and I’ll proceed to curb my enthusiasm for being a small part of the corporate machine.
