ROUGH STUFF 7 continues to bring you a fascinating look into the creative process of comic art with interviews, articles, never-before-seen penciled pages, sketches, layouts, roughs, and unused inked pages from throughout comics history—plus critiques of newcomers’ work, and more! This issue features an in-depth interview and cover painting by X-Men inker TIM TOWNSEND! Also in 7, CRAIG HAMILTON, DAN JURGENS, and HOWARD PORTER all contribute their preliminary art, with detailed commentaries to explain its evolution into finished form. Plus, we spotlight legendary Marvel artist MARIE SEVERIN with a career-spanning retrospective, and also present a feature on graphic novels, with art and comments by DAWN BROWN, TOMER HANUKA, BEN TEMPLESMITH, and LANCE TOOKS! Edited by pro artist BOB McLEOD.
