‘Tusi #: 044
Artist: Jeff Lemire
Subject: The Demon Etrigan
Date: April 18, 2009
Location: Hobbystar’s Fan Appreciation Show, Metro Convention Centre (South), Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Note(s): They say the 3rd time is the charm and in this case it was true. This was my third attempt to arrange a sketch with Jeff at a show. The first 2 I had been so busy helping out that I never really got a chance to ask him for a sketch.
I shouldn’t have been surprised when I saw that he had chosen the Demon Etrigan as the subject for his DTB sketch. I had leafed through a portfolio of Jeff’s earlier and saw a number of sketches of Jack Kirby created characters. Looking at the drawing you can’t help but wonder how awesome a Jeff Lemire The Demon series would be, no?
