Blue Beetle

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.

    I hate Magic so much that I wasn’t even mad when you turned a drawing of Blue Beetle into a cartoon about hating Magic.

    Why is Blue Beetle colored white? I thought he was a Hispanic kid. And where’s his armor?

    i never heard of this “Magic:The Gathering.” and i thought people go to comic book stores to buy COMICS, not trading cards!

    To Sarah: If only that were still the case.

    Nice coloring job Eric… I love that palpable haze that’s all around the store… pretty great stuff!

    Jason- i really like you “Where Wolf” piece for OK Panic. I don’t know anything about the characters but i love how the wolf is biting the ninja person in the leg, and the ninja is screaming (like a little girl, i imagine) and losing his weapons.

    Hey Jason do you know if Mavericks has that Lotus Fire Troll Fart card in stock, don’t it tap for 12 mana?
