Bryan's preliminary rat sketch

This is a preliminary sketch that Bryan did of a dead rat, published in the afterword of One Bad Rat. It shows - at least to me - the amazing amount of care and love that Bryan lavishes on his work: I mean can you imagine any other comic book artist doing this much work on what is basically a preparatory sketch?

This is a poster advertising the imminent release of One Bad Rat in Spain, sent to me by a Spanish fan of Bryan's. (Thanks Jordi!)
