The Gabriellas

Mega-excited about working on a comic with my super-pal, Matt Aucoin! He's writing the badass story of a trio of teen girls. In a punk band. Who go to Catholic school. Who hunt monsters. Also, it's the 1950s. There is no element to this comic that is not awesome.

I'm lucky enough to get to do the pencils! Having a great time working with Matt, so I thought I'd give y'all a little taste of it:

A couple panels from the pencils so far:

Some preliminary character sketches:

Some ideas for weaponized instruments:

If everything stays on schedule, the first four pages of the first story will debut in DoubleThink at MeCAF in May. More to come, hope you can check it out!
