Work Space

My new work space. All the essentials - laptop, scanner, comics, original Ninja Turtles, framed Millenium Falcon poster. I like it.

If Star Wars Was Real

This is a pretty neat site.

Greatest Covers - Week 20

The Mighty Thor #142 by Jack Kirby. Everything is working here - the composition, colors, type. I think it's one of the best logos in comic history. That brick coming apart is fantastic. I'm a big fan of Jack and Mike Mignola, and you can totally see Jack's influence on Mike here, especially on Mike's early stuff.

MAM Goes Digital!

From Matt Bennett on the Mysterious Adventure Magazine blog:

That's right folks!

The book that looks like it's from the Golden Age is finally jumping into the Digital Age! We've got issues 2, 3, and 4 available for $2 downloads. Please check out these books-- there are SO many talented guys that have contributed.

Scott Godlewski (BOOM! Studios' Codebreakers & Dracula: Company of Monsters), Joshua Covey (Nobody Likes Jimmy), Ben Perkins (NeoTrash Comix), Ryan Cody (Icarus from Super75Comics & Villains from Viper Comics), Joe Dellagatta (Egg & Atomic Robo: The Getaway), Mikey Babinski (Wonder Woman & She Hulk), Matt Kaufenberg (Shrek), not to mention Michael Kasinger, Dan McDaid, Andy Kuhn, Dan Schkade, Evan Shaner, Dave Flora, Simone Guglielmini, Anthony Schiavino, Michael Powell, Guy LeMay, Sean Hartter, and still to be seen grace the pages of MAM, Lee Gaston, Derrick West, Andy Poole, Claudio Muñoz, Shawn Ullom, and many more!!

Just jump over to your right hand side, scroll down, and click on the "Add to Cart" button below the issue(s) that you'd like to purchase digitally. We understand that times are tough and the cost of a physical book plus shipping plus whatever else is just outrageous these days. We figure if your average 32 page (24 pages of story w/ about 7 pages of ads) comes to $.99 or more for a download. There's over 40 pages in each of these issues (about 4 or 5 of which are ads) hopefully you'll agree that the book is worth the little bit of extra coin.

We're still plugging along on the 2011 MAM Annual. We've gotta a ton of great stories from many of our MAM veterans, so keep an eye out for that.

Thanks for looking

Greatest Covers - Week 19

Rip Hunter...Time Master #29 by the great Gil Kane. I nominate this cover for no other reason than I want to draw this comic. I want to draw Rip Hunter, in his stylish green and red jump suit and bouncing around in his Time Sphere, beating the shit out of giant bugs with a crowbar. This is exactly the kind of book that I want to do. Greatness.
