No, she’s not my dreamgirl–not in that sense. But then again, I did help create her back about 14 years ago, Michael Leonard and I were working up some other Vertigo-esque type comics properties and we came up with this one (I’m not too proud to admit that DoorMan was compared to Sandman–in fact I’m flattered).
I’ve shown her around a bit in the years since, because I’m very pleased with how this artwork came out. But in the past couple of weeks Mike and I have been revisiting the property, and it looks like we’ll be doing something with it. On the advice of some marketing guru friends (okay, Matt Mulder) I thought I’d post Dreamgirl here and show off the new artwork I’ve done for her tank top “insignia”.
Keep in mind that the Dreamgirl property is something I co-own with Michael A. Leonard. But hopefully this will catch a few eyes and whet some appetites for what the two of us will be coming out with in the near future.
We will probably be moving in a slightly different direction with this character than trying to take on another comic book / graphic novel at the moment. We’re looking more at illustrated teen fiction–but she’s a prime candidate for that out of all the stuff we’ve created.
And Mike, sorry if I’m scooping you here. We do need to be generating some buzz, right?
