Deadpo- I mean – Deathstroke!

Deadpo- I mean – Deathstroke!

I was a fan of the Marv Wolfman/George Perez Teen Titans late in life. I wound up picking up a bundle of issues that included the “Judas Contract” storyline from a used bookstore when I was 18 or 19. I was aware of Deathstroke from his own series, but had assumed he was just a …

Speed

Speed

I am a fan of The Flash in concept and design. He is a character, much like The X-Men that I am always interested in reading, but usually always disappointed in. More so now that Barry Allen is back. I can’t give a flying fuck. Wally West is The Flash to me. And yeah, he’s …

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 …

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 …

Batgirl

Batgirl

I’ve always had a fondness for the Barbara Gordon Batgirl. Probably just comes from a childhood crush on Yvonne Craig from the old Batman TV show. A crush which still kinda continues. It probably also instilled my appreciation for beautiful redheaded women. I loves me some hot redheads. Anyhoo, as with the Power Man/Iron Fist …

Kyle Rayner

Kyle Rayner

I’ve got a lot of Green Lantern art on this blog. I don’t even read the book. In fact, the last time I read an issue of GL was when Kyle Rayner was still wearing this very costume. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold were guest stars in that issue.

The Invisibles

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, …

The World’s Finest

The World’s Finest

A week ago or so, my friend Jason and I reviewed Jeph Loeb’s “Daredevil Yellow” for our podcast, Gutter Trash. Afterward, we decided to watch Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, the animated DVD (blu-ray!) movie based on Loeb’s first Superman/Batman arc. While watching the movie, Jason and I both drew different versions of The World’s Finest. I …
