A sketch of Superman I did a while back.
I figure if I was Superman, I'd be pretty pleased too.
This picture has a few notes on it if you're interested in clicking on it.
The original picture was a full body shot, but I didn't really like the legs so I cropped it off for this.
Also, the Boner-Man meme is going pretty well. Be sure to check out the latest updates.
And finally, our most sincere congratulations to Joel for his Eisner nomination! Joel's gonna wipe the floor with those clowns.
Yes, I just called Darwyn Cooke a clown.
Please don't tell him.

So how did everyone else feel about the new JSA cover from the latest DC solicitations?
It was by Alex Ross.
And featured a character I'd never seen before..
I'm not even kidding.
Now what would you call him?
His erection is actually pointing at the above sentence.
I just don't know how I'm supposed to feel about this cover.
I mean, besides turned on.
It's like he's daring you not to look at it.
I had a friend in high school who would do the same thing.
Update: I added that speech bubble, which means The Boner-Man Meme has begun.
Click on the pics to .. God help you, make it bigger.
Josh is our first participant, but I fully expect this thing to spread like wildfire, so be one of the first to jump on the bandwagon.
Joel Priddy has joined the fray!
afp3683 gave us these two entries along with the quote, "This will forever be known as the Alex Ross cover that launched a thousand slash fics."
And ken-redtail has his own riff on that last one..
Update! Josh's boredom at work has led to another great entry.
I can just see this one in libraries across the country.
Shane remembers every teenage boy's worst fear.
Josh returns with another entry!

Yesterday was April's birthday, as you might have noticed from the big pink and white notice below.
I don't know if she had the most fun she's ever had on a birthday (we're all going to do something about that part on Friday though), but I was definitely able to get her the best presents ever.
It's Guy Smith and Edie Sawyer (aka The Orphan/Mr. Sensitive & U-Go Girl) from X-Force/X-Statix go-go dancing by Joel Priddy!
These two are April's favorite comic characters and the fact that they're together and doing something cute like go-go dancing is right up April's alley ... so, you know, double extra special.
My girlfriend is a superhero!
It's April as Bizarra by Dean Trippe!
April gets to live the dream and be an adorable (but super-tough) superhero and fly through the skies all while not being dressed like a porn star.
I'll let Joel and Dean post the full pictures on their own respective sites since it's their art.
Giving her these presents was one of the most exciting and best things I've ever gotten to do, and her excitement and disbelief and overwhelmedness (not an actual word) was absolutely awesome.
