So last night, Dean and I talked about what a great week/last few weeks this has been for comics and I asked if he was going to be doing a new Mainstream Art about it.
Lo and behold, I wake up this morning and there it is.
Go check it out.
Everything he says is true.

Speaking of comics, I'm thinking of giving some brand new ones away.
You know, like a contest or giveaway type thing.
Giving them away as prizes.
Anyone think they'd be interested in that?
Interested in free, awesome comics?
If you are, please leave a comment to that effect.
Or, if you know someone who would be interested, direct them this way, won't you?

So as you may have already heard, Team Awesome As Hell did not advance in the Fist-A-Cuffs Tournament, but I feel absolutely no shame in being defeated by a team as powerful and as good natured as Hackenslash.
Joel and Dean even did up some amazing post-match artwork that made me want to cry with good feelings over what great guys they are.
Do yourself a favor and check it out : Joel's. Dean's.
Tell me those didn't warm your heart.

Now that A.A.H. is out, it falls to all of us to throw our full support behind Hackenslash!
They're up against Sam Hiti and Paul Pope's The Die-ities in this round, so they'll need all the help they can get.
Tell a friend and remember, voting only lasts through Saturday, so there's not much time to get those votes in and insure a win!
Also, while you're there, don't forget to vote for Team De-Nile, The Pain Brothers, and Skin & Bonez in their respective matches as they're all friends and good people too.

It's Iron Man Day.

So I'm sure a lot of you have seen this already, but I needed an excuse to post these pictures. I mean, they were just sitting there in my folder begging to see the light of day.

If you hadn't heard Jon Favreau is directing an Iron Man movie starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Ol' Shell Head. Gwynneth Paltrow (I can't be bothered to see if I spelled that right) is set to play Tony's gal Pepper.
So have a look at these pictures from Iron Man's first appearance in Tales of Suspense 39..
Tales of Suspense 39 Iron Man Is Born!

Now have a look at this newly released first picture from the flick..
That's a mighty impressive real life interpretation.

Of course, I'm sure it won't take too long before they have him in the Adi Granov inspired armor..

However, we can only hope we get to see a faithful recreation of this scene before he changes..

And while I'm here and talking about Iron Man, here are two sketches I did.

The second one was intended to be part of a review I wrote for Mighty Avengers #1.

The joke I wanted to draw though turned out to be a lettering nightmare, so I don't know if I'll ever finish it.
If there's a competent (or even semi-competent) letterer out there that'd like to help me out, by all means, drop me a line.
Okay, I think I'm all Iron Man-ed out.

Superman vs. The Death Star!

Just as awesome as it sounds. has a neat article up that's essentially Superman versus the other big fiction franchises. Star Wars, X-Men, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter. You get the idea.

Kryptonite Lightsabers are discussed.
Do I really need to say anything else?

Last call for votes.

Shane whipped this up last night.
In 30 minutes no less.
Whatta guy.

Today is the final day of voting for Round 2, so if you or someone you know haven't made it to the polls yet, now is the time.

Pulp (Not So) Secret.

Fist-A-Cuffs is catching people's attention all over the webbernets!
Pulp Secret's latest episode had a feature on on FAC just in time for the start of Round 2, and Team Awesome As Hell scored some sweet screen time. (I will use any excuse for shameless alliteration.)
Many thanks to Joel for pointing this out to me. I should also thank Joel (once again) for getting me to enter something to begin with. That's bad grammar.
Here's the episode, watch it, then go check out Pulp Secret..

First things first.

Warner Bros. is actually asking us what DVDs we'd be interested in seeing them release.
Let's not blow this opportunity.
If you have absolutely no interest in DVDs of awesome animated shows, then just go take the survey anyway.
I've gone ahead and made you a cheat sheet..

You can mark whatever you want on the other ones, but "1" on those is imperative.

In FIST-A-CUFFS news, the battle between Team Awesome As Hell and Hackenslash is raging, and with only one day left, we need all the votes we can.
So rally the troops, kids, and let's rock the vote.
Sometimes I worry people don't know when I'm joking on here.

Ladies & gentlemen.. "Cool whip."


Well, my thanks to all of you who helped Shane and I move on to ROUND TWO of the Fist-A-Cuffs Tag Team Tournament.
This is where things really get tough though, because we are now in mortal combat with our friends Hackenslash.
What happens next is completely up to you fine people.
Voting for Round 2 only lasts 3 days, so get those votes in and tell a friend.

While I've got you here, I'd also like to mention the additions to the links list over there to your right.
As I promised, there is now a link to Shane's blog, and as soon as his real site is up and running there'll be a link to that as well.
Also, you'd be doing yourself a real disservice if you didn't check out my internet super-friends Joe Quinones and Maris Wicks.
Apparently, Joe has been stalking me in secret (from far, far away) and decided to put me in one of his awesome drawings..
It's easy to not be scared when he draws such pretty pictures, and now that we've talked about it everything is cool.
Be sure to vote for Maris and Joe's team Skin and Bonez as well!

Okay, that's all I've got for now.
