This is the first time I've drawn Kaboom since it's last issue. I always enjoyed drawing him and the diverse cast of characters that made up his world. I did the book with my good buddy Jeph Loeb, brings back such fond memories. Since it's been so long, my design vocabulary has changed a bit, and it reflects in the new look that Geoff has. It was so much fun revisiting Kaboom, I may just revisit a bunch of other stuff as an exercise to see what elements I would change, and which ones I'd keep. I've done some designs that will make me question the vocation I've chosen. Hope you enjoy the new Kaboom!

Very cool re-design! This makes me want to see a high quality Kaboom animation or a comic-book comeback drawn by you.

Thanks for sharing all this work recently. Keep it coming!

I like! Great redesign on this character.

I still remember all the Jeff, Jeph, and Geof jokes form the comic. Well, they weren't actually jokes, but you know what I'm talking about.

Maybe I'm the only one but, new design took two steps back. I wouldn't mind seeing this in a video game or cartoon where it's easy to see full shots of people but I think a lot of the details would be lost in print. Also, he doesn't have knees. That being said, I still the love the comic!
