Elementals #2 April 1989 It was 1989, and I was graduating from High School. In my home town, there were only two places to buy comics, a Convenience store with a spinner rack and just down the road from there at the town's only shopping mall, a B. Dalton booksellers that also had a spinner rack, but featured better comics. The plan was just after graduating and just prior to a party, to stop by the mall and get a t-shirt for the college I would be attending (and subsequently dropping out of) in the fall. Being the comics fan that I am, I decided to stop by the bookstore and pick up a comic or two. For some reason on that afternoon, I decided to pick up something new, and that was where I was introduced to Elementals.
Okay this came in our Twitter feed and we felt the need to share. This, to me, is an amazing piece of work and I for one like to see more of what goes into our books. I am indeed fascinated with the whole coloring process so any chance I get to show the before

After my initial article on Zenescope, I was contacted by their P.R. Director and sent two collections, Jungle Book and Jungle Book:Last of the Species. While an improvement over the other Zenescope books I read, they still suffer from similar problems. I'm not extremely well-versed in the original Jungle Book, so I looked it up so I could see where writer Mark L. Miller strayed from the source and what he retained. I was impressed to see a very complex relationship between the various animal species. However, the first departure is that Mowgli, in grand Zenescope tradition now a girl, is one of four infant children abducted for nefarious reasons but the survivors of a shipwreck on the jungle island of Kipling, where the various animal species are at war. As a truce, the children are split up to be raised by different species. Miller incorporates the various Jungle Book tales into his story, with a girl raised by mongooses, and two boys raised by tigers and apes, respectively. Naturally, in time this leads to conflict.
