I’ve been working with a new illustrator, Jonathan Lam, for the upcoming November–December issue. One of the things that sets this guy apart from the other illustrators whose work has appeared in our pages is that he is—among other things, of course—a comic book illustrator.
We wanted art with an epic feel for a story about a woman who has a waterbirth during a power outage after a huge windstorm in the Seattle area, and Jon’s style seemed a match.
After all, what could be more heroic than natural childbirth? I’d like to see Spidey do that . . .
