Red Leaf signs Eric Douthitt to draw the Mountie Brigade Saga

Red Leaf Comics first made TSOG HQ aware of the Mountie Brigade back in June.  It will be a color series featuring the future Leaf Angus MacSorly set on Mars in the year 2112.

Last week, publisher John Michael Helmer announced that Eric Douthitt would be handling art duties.  Douthitt is drawing the first Chapter, entitled "The Searcher, part 1".

This is not Eric's first assignment for Red Leaf Comics.  He has already drawn covers for Abominable Tales #1, The Leaf #5, and The Leaf #8.  He's also completed part 1 of a four-part short story featuring a new Canadian modern spy in the Red Leaf universe. Here is some (unfinished) art as a teaser.

Helmer describes Douthitt as "a phenomenal new talent with a diligent work ethic and a professional attitude that supports Red Leaf Comics and its core principals".  Here's an interview with Douthitt from this past June, including some examples of his work.
