Two step, two step..

Art I'm proud to own.

Aquaman Vol. 6 #25
Page 17.
Pencils : Patrick Gleason
Inks : Mick Gray

I bought this from Patrick Gleason himself at San Diego Comic-Con last year.
He didn't believe me when I told him, but he was one of the people I was most excited to meet... and I also met Darth Vader and Power Girl. So, you know, that says something.
Anyway, he was cool to Curt and I as we talked to him about whatever goofy comic business we talked to him about, and he's even dropped by this blog a time or two (which I, of course, completely geeked out about in private).
I think his run on Aquaman (though not nearly long enough) was the best the character has probably ever looked and this incredibly dynamic page is a perfect example.

I hate that..

I drew mc chris on one of our trivia answer sheets the night that Gary Gygax had died.
I asked Curt what mc should be saying and that's what he told me to write.
Therefore, this is Curt and I's comic memorial to Gary Gygax.
For the record, I hate my "coloring" on this, but I didn't want it to just be pencils.

This is what we do.

Okay, folks.
It's time to step up and do something worth doing.
I didn't really talk about it on here, but something very similar happened to my youngest brother last year, so this is close to home for me.
If you're reading this, it most likely means you're a certain kind of person.
The kind of person that believes in heroes.
The kind of person that believes a man can fly.
The kind of person that believes when you're given the opportunity to help out, you should.
This is what it's about.
This is what we do.
Let's make it happen.

Too much, too young, too fast..

Look at that picture.
I cannot produce a reason for why you shouldn't be watching Legion of Super Heroes.

UPDATE : It's worth mentioning (not really) that this was my 100th post of 2008.
And it's only March! My goal of 400 posts may very well end up happening!
It's also worth mentioning that two posts in a row had pictures of oversized green dudes. Truly, I am fighting the good fight.

A very long title..

The trailer has finally been let loose.
Looks like a lot of monster mashing fun.
I don't know what I think of this new incredibly vein-y Hulk though.
Whatever problems the Ang Lee flick had, I always thought it had a good take on how the Hulk should look. Big. Very big, in fact, but not like he spends all his non-smashing time in the gym. Maybe that's just me though.

Just smile, Loretta..

If you have not played this game...

Rest assured, that I do not have the verbal capacity or writing accumen to truly explain it's greatness.
It is both a marvel and a thing to be gawked at with wonder.
It is also a thing at which one must yell completely unintelligible strings of swears. I mean, it's not like they even give you a choice.
It's beautiful.

For those of you have played it, I'll just leave you with this and know that nothing else needs to be said about the game or Lucas' awesomeness.


Make it go faster...

The final issue of the Atom Eve mini-series came out this last week, and my only complaint with the series was that it was only 2 issues long.
I can't speak for the rest of the comic buying populace, but I'd have been more than happy to have this be a monthly book from this creative team.

Pencils by Nate Bellegarde. Colors by Rico Renzi.
Since it doesn't look like that'll be happening though, I'd like to go ahead and second Brian Andersen's recommendation that Benito and Nate be allowed to take over Supergirl.
Probably won't be happening either, but boy, that'd be swell.
