Bootleg prints, dumb with a capital “D”

Bootleg prints, dumb with a capital “D” For those of you who have not been to a comic book convention…I’ll give you a real quick lay of the land of a typical mid-sized con.  You got your celebrity guests, some washed up, some still famous, usually against the back wall. ...

Stranger Things 2 review

  Stranger Things 2 review *massive spoilers and possible vulgar language* While waiting impatiently for Netflix to release The Punisher, I watched Stranger Things 2 because…eh, why not. It took me about three days to get through it, not because it was awful, I can power my way through awful...

One last Con this year!…and how the previous one went

One more f*cking convention…just one more…I can do it. The last chance to see me at a con this year is Rhode Island Comic-con Nov.10-12!  Rhode island is a state I guess…I’ll be honest, my geography isn’t real good once you get to the upper east coast.  Is it a...

INKTOBER 2017 inking contest

Just for the hell of it, last you I did an inktober inking contest…people liked it. So, what the hell, let’s do it again. I picked out some Arsenic Lullaby illustrations of varying degrees of difficulty and each with different challenges. You can play to your strong suits or try...

You call THAT promotion?!

SAY MY NAME I’m going to start right off…and tell you I’m the a-hole here…probably…no…I am..MOSTLY, being an hole by complaining about the following.  I know this, but…still. Should I be annoyed when someone is listing off bios of people and they’ll mention four or five things for everyone else...

Featured Greek Illustrator -TOMEK GIOVANIS

FEATURED GREEK ILLUSTRATOR- TOMEK GIOVANIS Of all the Greek Illustrators I have and will mention…this is the one I am least looking forward to. Anytime I promote someone besides myself…it’s against my nature.  You can argue if it’s counter productive or not to promote anyone but yourself, but Tomek really...

Featured Greek Illustrator! Yannis “Rubus” Rubulias

I happen to be published in Greece by the fine people at Jemma Press, and a while back I attended Athens Comic-con or Comicdom Con as it is officially named. They had an artist alley and aspiring comic book artists just like any good comic-con.  The difference I noticed…was the...
No more TICK for me.

No more TICK for me.

“exit our hero stage left.” Yes, my run on The Tick has come to a close with a grand total of one issue… “exit our hero stage right”. I’ll get into the whole fiasco later maybe, I gotta figure out how to make it entertaining…and short. Just laying everything out...
People hit with chairs at Dragon Con

People hit with chairs at Dragon Con

These Comic-cons, they can get sketchy at times I saw some news stories about chairs being thrown from the tenth floor of a hotel during Dragon Con.  The chairs hit two women, one dressed as Loki. The police, at the time I’m writing this, had no one in custody. So,...
Capturing the imagination

Capturing the imagination

Capturing the imagination There is a “method” of laying out a comic book page (I put “method” in quotation marks because it really isn’t…it’s a lazy, ignorant way of doing things) that I see taught (by lazy ignorant people who don’t understand what is good about a comic book) where...
Lenticular cover ? What the hell Marvel?

Lenticular cover ? What the hell Marvel?

I was told there would be no math or  It’s about the content, stupid. There is something going on in the comic book industry right now that is so bafflingly idiotic that I feel compelled to talk about it…even though it’s so bafflingly idiotic anyone could figure it our for...
