6. Apollo

Listen, I know Warren Ellis has been cancelled for being a creep. It’s kinda not surprising that he’s a creep. Sadly. But, he’s still a guy I think we should respect the work he did at the top of his game. Among those, The Authority essentially redefined superhero comics for nearly a full decade, and …

5. Northstar

Oh, Northstar. Where to start? Not the first gay superhero to come out, but perhaps the first to be created AS gay? At least according to legend. John Byrne, in a seriously rare moment of progressiveness – who had created Northstar and the rest of Alpha Flight as basically punching bags for the X-Men – …

4. America

Don’t know much about her, but I read the recent America Chavez: Made in the USA and it’s a “your whole life is a lie!” plot. Which is not great for even the most well-established of characters, and kinda worse for characters barely a decade old. Anyhoo. I like the simplicity of her look, she’s …

3. Superman

Confession, I really don’t care for grown-up/college-age Jon Kent. He should have remained a kid. He’s a good foil for Damien Wayne. I’ve read a handful of issues of Superman: Son of Kal-El, and I just don’t enjoy it. I loved the Nightwing cross-over, but Jesus, Tom Taylor is SLAYING on that book. I think …

2. Pied Piper

Not the best sketch. Anyhoo, back in 1991, I had a friend… it was either James or Preston. I’m leaning toward Preston. We were talking about the brand new TV sensation called The Flash. You’ve heard of it. Lasted 14 seasons. John Wesley Shipp became the biggest star in America. Anyway, James/Preston was schooling me …

It’s Pride Month, and I’ve decided to help celebrate in my own way, by drawing a month full of LGBTQIA+ superheroes/characters. As an 80% cis het dude, I do feel I probably should not be doing this, but I just wanted to draw some fun & kick-ass characters, and show my support to people who …

Patreon Reward: Hyperion

Patreon Reward: Hyperion

Patron asked for the Paradise X version of Hyperion. The Squadron Supreme and all its various incarnations and alternate versions confound me a bit, but they are a sort of evil but not quite Marvel version of the Justice League. I have drawn the classic version before.

Patreon Reward: Rito Revolto

Patreon Reward: Rito Revolto

Patron asked for this Power Rangers baddie. Like most villains/monsters in this series, he looks completely badass, but is probably a whiny-voiced goofy fuck in the show. But, he’s pretty metal.

Patreon Reward: Super-Eeyore

Patreon Reward: Super-Eeyore

My patron asked for Super-Eeyore (a mash-up of Superman and Eeyore, natch), and almost instantly as the words filtered into my brainmeats, I knew that I had to homage Frank Quitely’s iconic All-Star Superman cover. May as well take this opportunity to say that I’ll be drawing sketches at Maverick’s Cards and Comics in Kettering, …
