Finally, let’s talk about the overall look of your arc. What can you tell us about the approach you’re taking with “Ultimate Comics X-Men?”
Asrar: The past year I’ve been rendering my work with markers and inking my own art. That meant I had a huge amount of control on the final look of my work. For this story, I’ll only be pencilling my work which is, in a way, liberating. It lets me focus on different things about my art and helps me solve some drawing problems with different approaches. I like the switch up — it helps me grow as an artist.
When solely pencilling, I automatically and subconsciously do different things. Visually, I don’t think this story will be a complete departure from what I’ve been doing recently, except for the change in tone and setting. It’s interesting how much diversity this alteration can bring to the look of my work.
Plus, I’ll have an awesome team of artistic collaborators in Juan Vlasco and Jordie Bellaire. While Juan adds character to my work, Jordie brings a unique feel and tone to the book.

No more lies.
