32. Happy

Posting later tonight or tomorrow, Episode 223 of Gutter Trash will be our review of Grant Morrison & Darick Robertson’s HAPPY!. So I drew the titular Happy, ‘cuz who doesn’t like a cute cartoon flying horse? Nick Sax, that’s who. I haven’t had time to watch a movie yet today, but yesterday I watched two …

200 – Animal Man

Grant Morrison’s Animal Man is in my top 10 favorite comic runs of all time. It’s a trippy, fun, dark, and brilliant take on what was essentially a z-list character, proving that any character can become a success with the right support behind them. Animal Man is getting relaunched for the New DCU, written by …

048 – Johnny Quick

Johnny Quick is the Crime Syndicate’s evil Flash, who mainlines a (literal) speed drug. Not as awesome as any Reverse Flash, and not the heroic Golden Age Johnny Quick. Oh well. He looks cool (the original CSA Johnny Quick does not).

047 – Owlman

Owlman, the Crime Syndicate version of Batman. He’s an amazing character in Grant Morrison’s Earth 2 graphic novel, and that is totally trumped by the version of the character in the Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths direct-to-DVD movie. Plus he’s voiced by James Woods, which is simply awesome.

046 – Ultraman

Ultraman, the Superman of Earth 3 (or Earth 2 if you’re a Grant Morrison fan). He is the evil leader of the Crime Syndicate of Amerika. I love dopplegangers, especially evil opposites. Morrison’s Earth 2 graphic novel is a major highlight of his JLA work. Highly recommended if you haven’t read it.

015 – Aztek

He was still in high school, and I was otherwise unemployed, recently fired from my first “career” job out of art school. I always liked Joe, but for whatever …

The Invisibles

Grant Morrison’s Invisibles is my all-time, absolute, #1 favorite comic of all time, of any genre. It almost changed my life, if not for the fact that my laziness and unmotivated ways won out over life-alteration, and simply just gave up. I didn’t draw Boy a) because I thought I’d make her look too manish, …
