Today is Jack “King” Kirby’s 99th birthday! Even though he died back in 1994, his creations are loved today as much as ever. I dare say I couldn’t go an entire day without seeing his artwork or one of his creations, even if I didn’t have one tattooed on my body.
He changed the world of comics, and he certainly changed the world.
So here’s my Kirby version of a self portrait. Happy birthday, Jack!

Everyone should read more comics, it’s true. And if you’re looking for one to try out I highly recommend Dark Horse’s Black Hammer written by Jeff Lemire and drawn by Dean Ormston (with incredible colors by Dave Stewart and the best letters in the business by the one and only Todd Klein)!
Black Hammer has an amazingly diverse cast of characters including Talky-Walky and Colonel Weird (featured in the artwork above).
As of this post there are only two issues out so you should be able to track them down pretty easily.
Now turn off your computer and go read some comics already!

The Melvins and Helms Alee are gonna destroy Tulsa, Oklahoma next month with their righteous fury. Here’s a poster I did for it.

Here’s another homage to Al Milgrom. I’m feeling creative again, by the way… so my next post should be more something more “me”.

I haven’t been feeling very creative lately. But since I still like to draw I tried to faithfully recreate some old Marvel Comics covers. Here’s my version of Defenders #50 (drawn while watching episodes of Quantum Leap on Netflix) originally drawn by Al Milgrom. Al Milgrom deserves more love, by the way.
