ROUGH STUFF 8 presents more amazing looks 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 the extraordinary MIKE MAYHEW! Also in #8, we present preliminary and unpublished art by ALEX HORLEY, TONY DeZUNIGA, NICK CARDY, and RAFAEL KAYANAN, as each artist offers commentary explaining how their work evolves into its finished form. Plus: Dominique Leonard spotlights the great Belgian comic book artists, MIKE MURDOCK goes under the knife for a ROUGH CRITIQUE of his work, and more! Edited by pro artist BOB McLEOD.
