Can You Dig It?

Can You Dig It?

I’m jus’ talkin’ ’bout Shaft. This week at Ok, PANIC! we’re celebrating the life and work of Rob Liefeld. I have a feeling that we’re doing this ironically. I’m not a fan of ironic enjoyment of anything, but it is incredibly hard to like Liefeld on any level other than irony. But I am going …

Doop

Peter Milligan is one of my favorite writers*, Mike Allred is one of my all-time comic heroes, and together they created a run of X-Men related books that were so unique and so different and so “Fuck You, X-Men fans” that it will never be topped. Even Grant Morrison’s run on the X-Men couldn’t do …

Ok, PANIC!: Richie Rich

Ok, PANIC!: Richie Rich

The first Ok, PANIC!. I stole this joke from The Simpsons. Done entirely in Adobe Illustrator.

Ok, PANIC!

Ok, PANIC!

2021 Update: Ok, PANIC! is long dead, my contributions to it long before that. It was a stupid experiment that I tolerated a lot longer than I should have. No offense to the other artists who contributed. The ones I was directly involved with anyway. I have re-homed my Ok, PANIC! artwork elsewhere on the …

Much like my opinion of Jack Kirby, I’ve spent most of my comic reading career disliking Steve Ditko. Over the past few years I’ve gotten past the things that I disliked – which were all aesthetic issues – and realized the genius of both of those creators embedded in their art. It also doesn’t hurt …

Gladiator

Gladiator

Cool Dave Cockrum design, pretty cool twist on the Superman archetype. Cool X-Men sometime villain. Bad drawing from a few years ago.

It Means "Go!", Goddammit!

It Means "Go!", Goddammit!

Seriously, the green arrow means go. Don’t fucking hesitate. And for that matter, when it’s just a regular green light and you’re making a left turn, pull into the damn intersection, for chrissake. I believe I’ve already laid out my love for the archer superheroes in the Hawkeye drawing. I’m especially a big fan of …

I’m a Creep

I’m a Creep

My first exposure to The Creeper was the “Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told” trade paperback. I was fascinated by the bizarre character. Ditko’s some kind of genius. Crazy, but genius. I even was a big fan of The Creeper series from the late 90s. Not so much the Steve Niles series. Best forgotten.

The Shadow of Atomic Fear

The Shadow of Atomic Fear

Two Sabbath references in a row! I like The Atom. I became a fan of Ray Palmer when I found the “Sword of The Atom” series in a second hand store, and enjoyed his appearances in Dan Jurgen’s unfairly maligned “Teen Titans” series. But I’m not such a whiny fuck that when he was replaced …

Has he lost his mind?

Has he lost his mind?

This mook’s got nuthin’ to say. Iron Man 2 trailer looks a-okay though. I do like Iron Man’s classic armors infinitely better than anything he’s worn since 1992.
