RUSH CITY sample, page 6 of 6 by AdamWarren RUSH CITY sample, page 6 of 6 by AdamWarren
Page 6 (of 6) from a part-comic/ part-storyboard hybrid dealie that I did as part of a proposal for a mysterious “side project” connected to the DC Comics miniseries RUSH CITY.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Yes, in panel 1 I copied that effed-up gearshift layout directly from a copy of RUSH CITY #1, sadly without noticing that the pattern seems to lack both neutral and first gears... Oops! Hey, what can I say, I haven't driven a standard transmission since I used to drive a tractor...

Background: In 2006, DC Comics and Pontiac kicked off a new miniseries, RUSH CITY, that was in effect a product-placement deal on a grand scale. Mysterious new urban hero Diego Zhao, aka “Rush,” rights wrongs, helps the helpless, and defeats the defeatless with the help of his snazzy and gadget-heavy car, a Pontiac Solstice GXP (hence the product placement). Note, by the way, that former firefighter Diego dubbed the sports car “Sam” after his ex-fiancee’s daughter, who died in a fire.

I'm under the impression that this "Side project" was to be animated. These panels look suspiciously like storyboards.

It might've been; to be honest, I've no idea what ended up happening with the project. I cranked these suckers out purely as samples (for yet another failed-to-materialize job, alas).

I'm glad setbacks like those haven't discouraged you from the comics field. Zeus knows, I've come close to throwing in the towel too many damn times.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I've gotta go hunt down the last 3 issues to "Hypervelocity".

It would change the world

Not to worry: *Action* Heroes never use neutral or first gear anyway...
