Z2 Comics’ THE SWEETNESS: Exclusive Art Process GIFS

Screen+Shot+2016-04-25+at+1.58.11+AM

Sink your teeth into THE SWEETNESS, a new science fiction adventure comic book series about intergalactic smugglers by married first-time collaborators, the acclaimed, YALSA-nominated writer/artist Miss Lasko-Gross (HENNI) and the Eisner Award-nominated, XERIC award-winning cartoonist Kevin Colden (FISHTOWN). Set in the future, the first collaboration from the married creative team of Lasko-Gross and Colden follows two badass female intergalactic smugglers catering to the unique tastes of Alien drug addicts with a mysterious controlled substance. Due out in June from Z2 Comics, THE SWEETNESS reads like an old-school Vertigo book packed with fun-loving adventure.

“I want people to be excited about a badass space smuggler story and fall in love with the characters,” says Miss Lasko-Gross. “I hope readers are sucked into the story by the surreal moments of twisted humor and surprise.”

THE SWEETNESS is smart, fun, and Star-Warsy, but with more women, people of color — and it’s more raunchy,” says Kevin Colden. “This series marks my return to drawing long form comics (after taking time off to focus on family and other creative work), and while I’m usually very critical of my own work, this is the best work I’ve done.”

To celebrate the upcoming series, check out three exclusive GIFs from artist Kevin Colden showing his process in drawing THE SWEETNESS.
