I realized the other day that I have these awesome pages that Luciano did a long time ago of the 3rd Gen SENTINELS that no one has really seen. Back when we were doing the SENTINELS graphic novels (right after the second trade), we toyed around with the idea of doing an on-going series featuring the 3rd Gen team. I had written about three issues of it and Luciano had drawn six pages (which are posted here). We intended to show it to Image Comics and see if they were interested in publishing it. Sadly, when I met with the guy in charge of Image, he wasn't the nicest person. That's all I'll say about that. But regardless, he didn't like our work and we went back to finishing the SENTINELS series. As we got to the end, it became clearer to us that as much as we loved the 3rd Gen, we really didn't have any specific story in mind for them. With SENTINELS we had a great epic tale and a story that, we felt, had a lot of heart and purpose. We eventually decided against doing the 3rd Gen as a series and most of what we had started ended up making it's way into the SENTINELS Anthology.
But still, I thought it'd be nice to show the pages we had done and see how things had changed. Some of the characters got tweaked a little, but for the most part you know who they are. These pages helped us define them so that when they finally saw print, we knew their personalities pretty well. Probably the biggest change was that their was no daughter for Switchfast and Agent Huggins back then. Psyched was created later and I think she rounded out the group well.
