Judge Dredd vs. Savage Dragon

Judge Dredd vs. Savage Dragon

A few years ago, I was part of a group on the Newsarama message boards, and every week we’d have a new art challenge. One week, the topic was Judge Dredd vs. Savage Dragon. I’ve got an affinity for Dredd. I’m not sure where it comes from. Certainly not the movie. I also have a …

Sparklefox

Back in May, on Free Comic Book Day, my pal Jason (co-host of my super-excellent podcast Gutter Trash) invited me and another friend of his to help teach a cartooning class at a local library. It was fun, but I don’t think we imparted any wisdom on any of the kids there, who ranged in …

Plastic Man

Plastic Man

Plastic Man has always been a favorite character of mine. This was drawn out of love for the character and in tribute to Plas creator Jack Cole, who was hired as one of Playboy’s first and finest cartoonists, and to Hef himself, who was also a big fan of Plas and Cole.

Orion of The New Gods by Kirby

Orion of The New Gods by Kirby

I’ve never been a huge Jack Kirby fan, but lately I’ve been growing more and more fond of his work. I found this sketch online: And then “finished” it in Adobe Illustrator and tweaked in Photoshop.

Black Adam

Black Adam

Over the last 5-6 years, Black Adam has become one of the DC Universe’s most interesting characters. Not to mention the fact that he’s also one of the sharpest looking designs as well. Drew this in Adobe Illustrator a few years ago.

Savage Dragon

Savage Dragon

When Image Comics first started, Dragon quickly became my favorite of that batch, and when I grew out of Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, and Marc Silvestri (never liked Jim Valentino, still like Whilce Portacio and Todd McFarlane), I stuck by Erik Larsen, who became one of my all-time comic book heroes. Even though I dropped …

Batman: Fruit Pies

Batman: Fruit Pies

A parody of the old Hostess superhero ads. I miss this element in comics. Occasionally you see ads featuring superheroes, but A) they’re usually pandering, patronizing PSAs like “Jimmy, you shouldn’t smoke!” “Drugs are whack, yo!” or “Stop fisting your sister!” 2) they’re always poorly drawn and written. Sure the hostess ads ain’t high art, …

X-Patrol

X-Patrol

When Marvel & DC teamed up to do the Amalgam Comics experiment, they did an X-Patrol comic (X-Men & Doom Patrol). It wasn’t that great. It combined the 90s X-Men with the more classic version of the Doom Patrol. After reading (and loving) Grant Morrison’s version of the Doom Patrol, I thought that they should …

Blue Beetle

Blue Beetle

If you haven’t figured it out, since there’s more Blue Beetle drawings on this site than any other characters, he’s definitely in my top 3 of mainstream superheroes (Daredevil and Nightwing being the other two). I drew this in regular ol’ pen and ink, and then colored with color pencils. Unless he’s thrown it away, …
