Sub-Mariner

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019


A comic collection came into the shop where I work recently that contained a low grade copy of Marvel’s Fantasy Masterpieces #11.

The book was too rough to sell (there was a Band-Aid stuck to one of the interior pages that had probably been stuck there since the book came out in 1966) so I ripped out this awesome page from the Namor story and brought it home to redraw.

The original (pictured below) from Sub-Mariner Comics #34 was written and drawn in 1954 by Bill Everett and is a beautifully laid out page with some snappy Namor dialogue. Bill Everett was amazing. In addition to creating Namor Everett worked in comics for a number of publishers including Atlas/Marvel doing hero and horror books from the late 1930’s until he died in 1973. Check him out if you’re not familiar.

Samson #1 by writer/artist Don Stephenson will be hitting the shelves in June. Don asked me to color the cover and the above is the result. I love Don’s artwork and it was really fun to color. Be sure to check it out next month! For further info about this and other great Sparkle Comics publications click here.

Squad Car APA #3

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018


Issue three of the Squad Car APA features an awesome lineup of artists including Matt Jones, Ty Kinard, Ian Morris, Billy McKay, Joseph Tenney, Harrison Bridges, Dustin Trimble and myself.

Some color pages, some black and white, featuring comics, illustrations and experiments galore. There are even a few mini-comics embedded into the book! It is a great anthology that I’m honored to be a part of.

Thanks to Joseph and Matt for assembling this crazy thing.

The print run on this book is tiny and I’m not sure if copies are still available but you can definitely send a few well concealed bucks to Joseph Tenney at 913 Eastview St. Shelby, NC. 28152 for some quality comics.

Morf

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017


This is a sweet new mini comic written by Billy Mckay and drawn by 25 artists (including myself)!

Billy wrote and colored this glorious tale of a monster born from a volcano who can change shape at will.

Each page is drawn by a different artist who depicts their unique version of the monster as it transforms along with Billy’s imaginative story.

Each artist could only see the previous page before they drew their version so none of us were privy to its dance of transformations until we saw the fully realized book.

It’s truly something to behold! Such an adorable and experimental comic. I’m lucky to have been involved in it.

You can purchase a copy from Billy at billytherobot.etsy.com where he sells many other of his art projects including Space Castle, the super fun one player card game he invented. Check out his stuff, it’s awesome!
