Sub-Mariner

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.

Lucifer

This is a drawing I did for my wife this Christmas (nothing says Christmas like Lucifer, right?). The Mike Carey Lucifer series from the early 2000’s is her favorite comic so when I saw this blank cover for the recently relaunched series I decided to pick it up to draw on for her.

She said she doesn’t really dig the new comic but assures me she likes my drawing all the same.

New World

October 30th, 2018


This is my take on Stella from a great comic book called New World. Stella is a cop in a version of the Earth where the U.S. has just endured a second Civil War. Cops are celebrities on tv with the viewing public deciding by text vote whether or not they show mercy or cruelty to those whom they arrest.

It sounds bleak but it’s also fun and sexy and surreal. Like I said, great book.
