There’s a great comic book called THB by Paul Pope that for some reason is completely out of print (and no trade paperback is available as of yet). If you ever see any back issues for sale I strongly suggest picking them up as they are amazing. The artwork is stellar and the futuristic Martian world Paul created for these characters is beautiful and disturbing.

Anyway, my friend Roger asked me to draw one of the inspectors from the series for him but I got carried away and ended up doing these four panel recreations. Clockwise from top left are THB, H R Watson, The Buranchist and Inspector Peters. I tried to copy Paul’s style but I have to say I didn’t quite get it. His brushy linework is in a league of its own.

This is a recreation of a 19th century photograph I bought at an antique shop here in Dayton. The title was written in ink on the back of the photo.

Click on the image above to link to a very short mini-comic that was drawn for an art show that never happened. Jason and his friend Eric (co-host of Jason’s podcast, Gutter Trash) put together a mini-comic about KISS for this show. Eric did a three page Gene Simmons story, and Jason did a three page Ace Frehely tale.

This past weekend (April 18 ’09) was the Small Press And Comic Expo (SPACE), where Jason took up the copies of the KISS comic to give away, finally.

Eric has posted the Gene pages on his own blog, (Shonborn’s Carpal Tunnel).

I did this drawing as part of an art swap for my Fantastic Four commissions project. This is page 9 from what was originally supposed to be Blue Beetle # 6, from Charlton Comics. Here’s the original page by Steve Ditko:
