Strange Going-Ons

I hadn't recreated a cover for Covered Blog in a while, so when Josh Blair presented an interesting concept, I thought it sounded fun! He suggested four people interpret a different cover from Marvel Collector's Item #4.

Four of us did! The art was created by (clockwise from top left) Michael Nelsen, Anthony Vukojevich, Josh Blair and me! You can also see it officially over at the Covered Blog site. (Or right here...)

My little cover was a redo of Strange Tales #111.

Of course, I had to cover up most of it with this magical gentleman.

Look, his hands are saying "I love you," right before he wraps you up with the indestructible Crimson Bands of Cyttorak.

Axe Cop and Bat Warthog Man!

If you don't read Axe Cop, you really should. It's drawn by Ethan Nicolle and written by his six-year-old brother, Malachai. It's tons of fun!

I just finished a pin-up for Dark Horse's Axe Cop Volume 3, a collection of the web episodes. (Oops, maybe it won't be in there after all.) My art is based on this particular story. Axe Cop doesn't normally wear a cat suit, but he's in stealth mode!

Cross Panel Comics #7

For an explanation of Cross Panel Comics, click here. I begin this one with the strip starting with, "I think people are scared of me simply because I'm a cyclops." Click to enlarge...

By the way, Martin and I play this by penciling on a 12" x 18" pad of paper. I "inked" this on my new (small) Cintiq tablet. Think I'm going to like this!

Cross Panel Comics and the Internet

Not my normal type of post, but I wanted to clear some things up concerning recent posts on Reddit. This and this.

Iamadoctor is a my son's friend and MartinCallen is my son.

I want to give a big thank you to Alex and Jason who both emailed me, letting me know something weird was going on on Reddit.

Coincidentally (or maybe not), Martin and I just finished a new Cross Panel Comic this weekend! We play in pencil and I always retrace them in ink for better readability. That's the reason all the art looks much the same. Look for it on Monday!
