My Art – Sketch Cards

I forgot to grab the camera out of the bedroom before the wife went to sleep… So tonight instead of a picture of the Cyclops drawing I just did you get some older drawings of mine that I have saved on the Hard Drive…

To maintain the Mutant trend we will start with a couple of Mutant Sketch Cards.

Comics – Favorite Stories

Recently on Facebook a friend of mine posted that his son had asked what his top ten favorite comic book stories where. When I saw the post my brain automatically kicked in and I had to make a list of my own!

The Rule I made was I had to list the first ten storylines that I could remember really liking. Logic being that the ones I thought of first would be the ones that I had liked the most…

xtinctionXMEN BOOKS – Xtinction Agenda

This was the first major cross-over storyline I read and collected in a comic. I had been collecting old issues for a while but had just started picking up X-FACTOR after finding out that it was spun out of the last issue of New Defenders. Really dug the story. It was the underdogs and against the evil in a expanded story (Nine issues total, three each from New Mutants,X-Factor and Uncanny X-Men). It was a good story with a strong start and end. Something that is missing in the crossovers of today where the story idea is forced into every title from the publisher no matter if it works or not.
Batman Eartquake in Gotham storyline– Cataclysm, Aftershock, No Man’s Land

I always love disaster movies… so how could I not love disaster comics? I loved this era of Batman comics, but thought it sadly took a dive right after and was many years before it came back…
uy8_lgWolverine : Old Man Logan

End of the world story… What more needs to be said?
DC: New Frontier

Darwyn Cooke.
Annihilation and Annihilation : Conquest

DNA make the Marvel Cosmic books cool.
Batman: Contagion

A Batman Virus story. I love reading about virology. I love virus stories…


Jeff Smiths epic tale.  I love Epic Tales and this is one that ranks with the best.
Kingdom Come

I have to admit this one makes the list mainly for the art.

Usagi Yojimbo – GrassCutter

It was hard picking just one Usagi Story. While they are all epic, this one makes the top as one of my favorites.

Mage – Hero Discovered/Defined

Seems most of the stories that made my list are Epic Tales. Mage, a retelling of the Arthur myth is another one. Parts one and two of a trilogy , I like many Matt Wagner fans await the final volume of this tale.
Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

One of the best epic stories ever told. Detailing the life of Scrooge McDuck this tale combines Don Rosa’s Masterful art with his ability to tale wonderful and funny tales.



12 Covers that made a geek…

When I was young… A long time ago. I had a handful of comics. Some of them where bought for me by my father on his way home from work. Some of them my step brother gave to me when on home on leave from the army, and some of them where given to me as a gift when I was in the hospital getting my tonsils out…

Here they are:

12begin3Batman #190
Captain America #211
Defenders #100
Eternals #12
Hulk #224
Hulk #254
Hulk #270
Hulk #273
Marvel Team Up #55
Marvel Two in One #26
Star Wars #1
Star Wars #2

So what is this post about? My goal is to recreate all twelve of those covers along with 12 covers that are just big favorites of mine in a series of cartoonish drawings that are 5 x 7 that I will then use as art around my studio space… Here is the first sample:
