Brian Stelfreeze's 'Day Men' #3 Line Art and Colors Preview
On sale March 5, Day Men #3 will be the first issue of the BOOM! Studios vampire noir to be released since December. The reason for the delay is of course the uncommonly intricate nature of Brian Stelfreeze's artwork, which is rarely seen in serial projects at all, much less in an ongoing series. Co-writer and BOOM! Editor in Chief Matt Gagnon has referenced the "insane amount of effort"

Reascension of the Comic Book Artist
On sale this week from BOOM! Studios is the first issue of Day Men, a new series that introduces readers to the human helping hands of the violent vampire elite who rule the world in secret.

One of the forthcoming new titles most discussed around the ComicsAlliance water cooler (which is filled not with water but with blood) is Day Men, a BOOM! Studios project that sees the return of Brian Stelfreeze to monthly comics for the first time in seven years. Possibly best known for a gorgeous run of painted covers for Batman: Shadow of the Bat and one of our most favorite artists ever, the ultra-meticulous and stylized Stelfreeze normally keeps himself busy with smaller projects including comic book covers, commissions in the collector's market, and short contributions to things like DC Comics Art Director Mark Chiarello's auspicious Wednesday Comics anthology. But when BOOM! offered Stelfreeze the chance to create a world from the ground up, the "artist's artist" decided all the conditions were in place for him to get back to a monthly grind.
