SECRET INVASION has ended. The Skrull armies have been routed and destroyed. In the wake of his battle in aid of Thor and Asgard, Beta Ray Bill has departed Earth once more, to bring justice and order to the stars. But when Bill becomes savior of a space-faring alien colony, he'll discover that perhaps – just perhaps -- it's possible to be too much of a hero. Soaring action and adventure starring your favorite horse-faced Demigod of Thunder, by Kieron Gillen (NEW UNIVERSAL: 1959) and Dan Brereton (GOD-SIZED THOR)!

Yup- that's right "Penciled by". Should be interesting, huh?
This was spontaneous hire, and the cover had already been done by the time I was asked to draw this book. It was a great opportunity for me to just concentrate on pencils, something Ive been shy about for years, but have noted less and less resistance to from editors and fans over the years. I really got to have fun with this one, and this sort of Sci-Fi type story set in space, with ships and robots and aliens is something I've wanted to do for years. As a huge fan of Walter Simonson's THOR run, and a real pleasure to draw Walt's famous hammer-wielding space-faring horse-skulled warrior god, BETA RAY BILL. Walt's given me his blessing, and that makes it all the sweeter.
The street date is coming up, so get this one in your saver, kids! Inked by Stefano Guadiano (DAREDEVIL) and colored by (TBA). The last time I penciled a book was LOTDK #114 (inked by Tim Bradtreet)
