Back in 2005, when we had just published SENTINELS Book 2: Masks, Dave Ryan asked me if I was interested in being part of his mega-crossover "War of the Independents". I immediately said yes and Templar appeared (in his SENTINELS Book 2 look) in issue one of "War of the Independents" in the huge group shot of the issue. Fast forward a bit and we completed the SENTINELS series, but Templar hadn't yet made another appearance in "War of the Independents". I spoke with Dave and he reported that he was scheduled to appear in issue #6 (issue #3 was the latest to come out). Then this promo image appeared online and it was very cool to see Templar (now in his SENTINELS Book 4 look) on the image. He can be seen near the bottom of the page with his sword over the "R" in the word "WAR".
