Golden Age Showdown #1

This idea occurred to me, so I drew it to see how I felt about it. I might do more. Maybe. I did the easiest one first. :)

DIRTNAP is back!

If any of you read my webcomic, DIRTNAP, it's back on after a hiatus! It updates every Tuesday with only 10 more pages until the final page. I feel everytime I take a break and come back, my art gets a little better. :)

Mr. Monster vs. Captain Monster?!?

I've recently had the honor to do some trading of artwork with Michael T. Gilbert-- Mr. Monster writer/artist extreme! Michael asked if I could create a Mr. Monster cover in the style of the old Batman covers from the late 1950s/early 1960s. I said, Sure!" I've posted it above.

In return, Michael drew the below cover and sent me the original art. How fun!

Here are his notes, "It's a takeoff of an old DC Detective Comics cover. The original one was drawn in 1963 by Shelly Moldoff, signing his work as Bob Kane (something Kane insisted on). I've tried to keep the goofy spirit of the original, grafting parts of two different Batman covers in the process!"

Michael mashed together two Detective Comics covers, 320 and 272. He also gave me a few Mr. Monsters I didn't already own. So great!

Super Antics #13

This occurred to me, so I had to draw it!

Man, I need to post more. Do people still look at Blogger content?

Superman Smoking

I recently discovered the above panel from a 1958 comic, Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen #30. The man is actually a thug who is imitating Superman, but I still HAD to animate it!

I almost added a word balloon, "That sounds like your problem. I don't really give a $#%@." At least I stopped myself from doing that.

A Joke NOT in MAD #7

As I developed ideas for "Shazam Funnies" (which appears in MAD #7), I actually had two ideas for a Calvin and Hobbes parody. Here's the one you didn't see--

I typically supply a script and descriptions of my concepts. My other "Billy and Tawny" idea is the one that got chosen. It is more MAD-like. (If you've ever read my Halo and Sprocket stories, you know that sometimes I get a little sweet, as compared to always going for a joke-only punchline.) Here's the finish "Shazam Funnies" that appeared in MAD.

However, my other idea stuck in my mind, so I went ahead and drew it just for kicks!

Here is another piece of my art that appears in MAD #7-- the Batman/Superman gag on the cover of the Potrzebie comic section. I've seen a cropped, square version of this shared around the internet, but honestly I like the bigger, vertical image more.

Anyhoo, MAD #7 is no sale NOW. You should go buy it. I think that cover's pretty funny! :)
