Teaser for Mario Candelaria's THE RECEPTION

Two years ago, Mario Candelaria, asked me if I would like to draw a three page chapter from his upcoming graphic novel, THE RECEPTION. I agreed and then a lot of jobs came between me and those three pages. I recently had a lull in my schedule and finally got to tackle that chapter. Here is a teaser from, "The Funeral of Hearts."

Here is what Mario had to say about his project:

"It has been an absolute dream to work with Dean Haspiel, who is one of my comic idols as well as a fellow Brooklynite. The project is a fresh take on the concept of an anthology, with each chapter revealing a new point of view or encounter that took place during the shared event. The graphic novel is called, "The Reception," and it follows the guests at Ronnie & Becca's wedding through all of their dramatic and hilarious events. Other artists involved are Joel Lolar, Victor Santos, Dusty Higgins, Nathan Schreiber, Scott Ewen, Zane DeGaine, and many others."
