Illustration #3 for Maverick-1 Illustrated Edition: ‘Jack Turns Up the Heat’

Brian Hickey explains: “For this image, the brief from the author (after I’d shown him the very rough pencil sketch) was, “Needs more armaments. This is his Commando moment.”

So I read back over the chapter and made careful notes of all the weapons Jack had brought with him for his mission and how he carried them on his person. Once again, I wanted to give a nod to the “Wild West”, so I gave Jack a Gunslinger pose – legs apart and shooting from the hip.

I set the figure right in the midst of an explosion to create a sense of the havoc that he’s causing in the scene.”
