holy CRAP  

Ardian’s on Batman: BLACKEST NIGHT blankets Gotham City in this 3-issue miniseries from writer Peter J. Tomasi (GREEN LANTERN CORPS, THE MIGHTY) and hot new talent Adrian Syaf!

Holy crap holy crap HOLY CRAP

*dances and dances and DANCES*

I knew it, I knew it, I *knew* it. I *knew* he’d hit the big leagues when I opened up the very first email with a portfolio piece for Take A Chance, what, four years ago now? And now he’s a HUGO NOMINATED ARTIST and has worked on the X-Men now, and Captain Britain, and now BATMAN. OH. MY. GOD. I am happy enough to *cry*. Oh my GOD.

Wow. :) Makes me grin my head off. Cheers to Ardian for the big break and for having so supportive a friend.

*grin* That's so awesome. Take it from someone who knows--it's so cool to be able to say "I knew him/her when . . ."

Of course, I'd imagine it's even cooler to have been a major factor in said friend's rise to stardom. :D

Awesome news!
I am so happy for Ardian! His work on Take A Chance has just been getting better and better with each issue! He definitely deserves a shot at drawing the Caped Crusader. Now if only folks would stop spelling his name "Adrian." I don't think there has yet been an issue of TAC where his name isn't misspelled.

Anyhow, I'm happy enough to dance a little jig myself to celebrate this wonderful news!

Yay! X-Men? So has he drawn Gambit and Rogue yet?

Sadly, no. I oughta try to get him to do one for me before he goes nuclear. :) He did a Nightcrawler one-shot, though, and has gotten to draw Emma Frost and Cyclops, at least! And he did an issue of Captain Britain & MI-13!
