before I forget-
I'll be signing at the Comic Bug in Manhattan beach on Saturday, free comic book day. I'll try and scope out a link and the time and all in a day or so-
I'l be hawking the Marvel Adventures Iron Man issues I did, as well as the work I did in DC Universe 0-
Marvel Adventures Iron Man #12!
Some of the pages from my pencils and inks on Marvel Adventures Iron Man #12 are on the web - here's the first page and the double page spread for pages 2 and 3...
Two words, baby!
Maybe if I buried a shirt
on the highway the construction on the 405 would get done sometime this century...
more Marvel Adventures Iron Man goodness-
less than a month to go before the movie hits-
7th Portal goodness!
No year would be complete without me pining for the lap of luxury, which for me was my time at Stan Lee Media-
Here's a shot for the Halloween front page
and a shot from the Swimsuit issue, which I resisted aiming for the cheesecake shot (back when I had morals weighing me down) and instead tried to aim for telling some sort of story using the whistful imagination of one of the characters (Greta) to conjure up a memory of her compatriots as she is stuck in a cave with a reflecting pool within Mongorr's world. Probably a little off kilter for a swimsuit issue, but i wanted it to be something a little different.
Here's Dave Johnson's addition to the canon to get a feel for how to do something like this right. A little less pining away being done in his swimsuit pick.
Maybe I'll post my drawings for the Mongorr series that I was in the middle with when we were "let go."
I love how freelance enables me to never be "let go" again. Just "never contacted for the next project" ;-)
My one thought about Secret Invasion-
-which, I'm sure will be answered in a few issues time...
I'm guessing that some of the heroes and villians that came out of the skrull ship were skrulls and some were not. So-
What possible advantage to the skrulls would it be to send skrull versions of 70's heroes to Antarctica?
Let's say that John McCain is running for president in 2008 and a version of John McCain showed up that looked just like John McCain from before he was captured by the Vietnamese, would you trust the old looking one or the guy who looks like he's 40, claiming he was abducted by space aliens?
So - I just keep hitting against this loop-
Old McCain is either real McCain, which people might believe.
Old McCain is a skrull, which people might believe.
Spaceship 40 year-old McCain is a skrull, which people might believe.
Spaceship 40 year-old McCain is real McCain, which people would have a hard time believing.
If Spaceship McCain is a skrull, and it would be hard to believe that he was really McCain, how good a disguise is it then?
Nixon's Dead. I know Nixon's dead. If Nixon stepped off a spaceship, would I believe he was really Nixon? Wouldn't it be easier to believe that a Nixon stepping out of an alien ship would be likelier to be an alien associated with that ship? How good a disguise would that be?
How it is-
How I feel as each deadline approaches-
Quick overview of what's ahead
Quick overview of what's ahead in the next few months-
I'll be inking Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds
Inking the American Dream mini-series
Pencilling and inking another issue of Marvel Adventures Iron Man, issue 12
Inking a new issue of Brave and Bold over Jerry Ordway
I'll be posting in a sporadic fashion for awhile - probably with bursts and fades, much like the last month has been. Still, 2008 is shaping up to be a very good year artistically, I hope some of you will join the ride...
