Surprise ~ !



I tend to throw out boxes of 'comps' copies from the publishers,  but glad I opened this one -

The Ghosts mini series series in Detective Comics was the *only* Batman mini series not collected in a trade . .

until now.

So . . . kinda cool.

Maxx 2 cover.


Not my favorite, but a lot of people seem to really like this one. 

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

cool.


Something I've enjoyed doing ever since the Maxx is being able to color a single panel on page, like I've done here, on Eleanore. Even a small one or less important panel.

That thing was frowned upon by production in the old days my publishers,

but now you can do it easily.

Pretty cool.

This Scratch Monster . . .


. . looks a lot like my Potbelly monster from Bimbo, doesn't he?

Only with a buncha extra eye-balls.

Funny, I never noticed that before.

Another abstraction . .



. . . or we could just pretend it's a creature from the Outback,

either way.

Two Crappy Sketchbooks


Please remember "crap" is a term of affection for me, and isn't an insult.

Crap . . . is good.

He always encouraged me when i was trying to break into comics.

Twout: Antique Novelty Facts.


Here's a Twout Ad I drew in my sketchbook.


I added a vocal duo from the 1900s, Eddie 'Triangle-Head' Potts and  Mrs. 'Baby-Doll' Fallon.  


'Reticent Records' is riff on Edison Records cylinder discs.



Course the ad features the 'Magic Trout' and 'Cap'ian Should'.



Novelty Fact: The Cap'ian first appeared in issue 1 of Darker Image.

Originally an unused Maxx cover,

then  found printed 'home' as a trading card,

and some twenty years later, it fulfilled it's destiny as a cover again.

Nola sketch-book scribblings


For some reason this goofy 'color coding' my written scribblings . . .

helps me make sense of it all.
