LOST IN TREK by Jerome-K-Moore LOST IN TREK by Jerome-K-Moore
Comic Book Cover Art, DC Comics, STAR TREK. Pencil, Ink, Brush, Pen, Opaque gouache, China marker.

Lost in Space actor Bill Mumy penned a few installments of the Star Trek comic series for DC. In these stories, he revisited his Lost in Space family by re-inventing them in the guise of aliens. Mumy was continually frustrated in his attempts to realize a new version of the 60s television series sensation, and DC afforded the opportunity for him to express some subtle semblance of his dream.

Following suit, I mischievously paid my own tributes in the cover illustrations. Hidden in the hair-texture of the boy alien, Arrit (front and center of the floating hologram) is the title "Lost in Space." Unfortunately, my editor caught this Hirschfeld-esque stunt, and removed it from the printed issue. BUT -- he didn't remove Will Robinson himself, who appears among the assembled crew in his silver spacesuit in the far background! LOL!!

Eagle-eyed viewers might also catch E.T. the Extraterrestrial making a cameo appearance, peeking out from behind a crewmember. >wink!<

Thats a really nice idea. So did you get to keep all these comic covers and pages you did for DC?

Standard policy. All artwork done by the artists is returned within one year. If it's a collaborative work over several internal pages, the work is divided up between the penciller and inker at a 60-40 split. In the case of Special Projects, where art is done specifically for marketing purposes, usually the art is retained by the company at a higher pay rate.

Thats really cool, to know that eventually the drawing the artists spent so much time on is returned to them. Really cool.

Well, that's pretty much the way it works in the freelance industry, Sean. Whenever it's not, then the pay rate should be higher as compensation. It's generally accepted that the artwork represents substantial income for the artist as a "property" independent of the commissioned job.
