I'm sure many of you have already seen most, if not all of these images. But right now, what else are we going to report on?

Including alternate outfit concepts and never used characters. Even some concepts he pitched to Wildstorm, years ago, for their comic.
We've mirrored a bunch of them, but you can check out the rest at his Gallery.

Forum member Balgus82 pointed us to this video where we get a status (non) update on the Thundercats series. During the DC Nation panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, Thundercats producer Michael Jelenic is asked about the status of the Thundercats Cartoon. He passes the question onto Jeff Prezenkowski who answers with "We're waiting to see what's going on with it..." and "We'll see, we'll see. We haven't heard any word yet, but I guess we'll find out". Not the most reassuring answer. You can see for yourself below.
