'fly with U.S.' poster by strongstuff 'fly with U.S.' poster by strongstuff
here's a poster that i did for j.s. lewis, author of the grey griffins series of books. a while back, i created this pinup for inclusion in his forthcoming sketchbook, "the mysterious journal of j.s. lewis". shorty thereafter, he asked me to create a WWII style propaganda poster featuring a squadron of jetpack-fitted U.S. infantrymen.

here's the cool part: copies of this poster will be available for purchase from j.s. at the 2009 san diego comicon! he'll be at the komikwerks booth (#2648, right near marvel and boom!)...stop by and pick one up!

NICE. Looks like a Tarantino-ish crossover between Blackhawk, GL Corps, S.H.I.E.L.D., Rocketeer, and Sky Captain
