Happy Halloween!

Monday, October 31st, 2011

So other than reviewing a couple of scary movies for Gutter Trash it was starting to look like I wasn’t going to have a very festive Halloween season (I missed “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” last week)… until today!

Today my lovely ladyfriend Kathleen and I watched the first three episodes of last season’s Walking Dead television series, I drank a beer called “Werewolf”, I carved a jack-o-lantern and to top it all off I watched the trailer for the Twilight movie that comes out next month! Talk about scary! It’s Halloween mutha effers!!!

Blue Beetle

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Saturday when I was at my pal Eric’s house for drawing night I was feeling a little uninspired so he suggested I draw the Blue Beetle for him. Well, the Blue Beetle’s in the drawing but it mostly came out as me whining about my work.

For those of you who don’t know me I’ve worked at a comic book shop for 20 years… or at least I did until recently when it became a Magic the Gathering shop that also happens to sell comics. This has resulted in me hating Magic. It takes up so much of our time at work that the comics section is noticeably suffering and Magic only seems to be getting more popular.

Don’t get me wrong as far as card games go I think Magic is a fine game (I used to play it quite often back in the ’90’s) but I just really miss working in a comic book shop that stocks a little bit of Magic.

So anyway I drew this and Eric colored it up nice.

For the record Eric also hates Magic the Gathering… possibly even moreso than I.

Cerebus

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Dave Sim‘s Cerebus has long been one of my favorite comics so when Brian John Mitchell asked me to draw a short Cerebus script that he’d written I said, “okey dokey”. Here’s a drawing that appears on page two of theĀ  comic. Hopefully the finished product will appear in the October issue of the Cerebus Newsletter… but who knows really?
