Script: Greg Meldrum. Artwork & Lettering: David Broughton.
After completeing the first Martillo story ‘Maneras de vivir’ we talked about producing a collection of Martillo stories which we could self publish.
To be honest I wanted to work on a Sci-fi/horror/war story so that I could draw way-out space ships, monsters, robots and Aliens. However having already worked on several of Gregs scripts I knew that he would produce something special for our co-creation and decided that this would be a fun project to work on.
To that end Greg Meldrum small-press comic script writer extraordinaire began to work tirelessly on the six part story.
I received the first script ‘Que viene el coco’ on June 18th 2012 and after finishing part of my Judge Dredd story ‘Mean green machine’ I started the finished artwork on July 9th 2012.
I had a number of new characters to design for this story and as usual I produced rough layouts for all the pages to make sure that we had room for word balloons etc.
