Jonathan Kuehlein has as short interview with artist Ken Lashley posted on his site in which Lashley talks about walking away from comics.
“I was working hard, not smart … I have to do what’s best for me.” — Ken Lashley
As to his future as a comics creator:
“I think I’ll be a specialty guy, maybe mini-series. They want me to stay at Marvel.”
In September, Lashley posted to his blog:
l am working on some new things and (Black Panther) #11 is one of them. l was asked to come back and do issue 11…from that..who knows. ….well, l do. hahahaaha. l will be at Marvel for a few more books..these are the books that you dream about doing. l will be finalizing some other things as well.
Then in November:
l am going to NY on Dec. 17th for the ‘Marvelous Color’ show in Midtown. The CCCADI gallery is hosting the two month event. l am creating some original artwork for the show…my first gallery showing to NY…my life is about to take a fun turn.
Best of luck in your career path of choice, Ken.
