Rare early inked piece from CatsStudio in the Philippines by Leinil for the comic "Dark Moon". 10.5" by 9" pencil and ink on paper. Before I bought this piece I talked to Leinil about it and he reminisced it was back in the day when "I was paid peanuts". Well comic art has been good to me so this week I offer it up for peanuts. $.99 and you can own a 100% (none of that blue-line crap) Leinil Yu original cover baby!

I had a question about the signature on this piece so I ran Leinil's name through the comicbook data base for the earliest cover they had listed. Check out Aster The Last Celestial Knight #3 from Cats Studio and you'll see the same stylized "Yu" signature.

Spent a little more time looking into Leinil's signature history. He used this "Yu" through Wolverine #140 July 1999. He used a block "Leinil" for #141 and 142. Starting with #143 is where we see the current single line "Leinil" like we see up to today.
