Fallen Angel - The Fuzu Jen cover - Part 1
This year at NYCC I had a table in artist alley.
As luck would have it, my assigned table was right next to Peter David. This was great because firstly, I hadn't seen him in a while and secondly, this was the con where we and IDW were going to announce the new Fallen Angel mini series, "The Return of the Son".
Well, between my schedule and Peters much more hectic one, neither of us were in artist's alley at the same time on Friday which was a bit disappointing. But all that changed when I came in Saturday morning.
I came in a little late and was happy to see that Peter was actually there. So much so in fact, that I didn't notice what else was right in front of me until Peter said, "J.K.! you've got to see this! As I was turning to see what he was gesturing toward, I was wondering what's he so excited abo...WOW!
standing right in front of my table was the living Liandra! the best Fallen Angel costume I've seen to date! Her name was Fuzu Jen and she made this thing herself! Both Peter and I were talking to her and taking pictures and that's when Peter suggested we feature her on the inside cover and use one of the photos we had taken as a ref for the Front cover. So here it is.
(If anyone knows Fuzu, and sees this, please direct her here. I had written down her email address so that I could tell here about this, but either I wrote it down wrong or her site is down. Whatever the case, I would like it very much if she would contact me.)
