Comic books should be seen and not heard...

..and floors should maybe be swept before taking photos.

Games for the home

Did you know that there was a Calamity of Challenge game for the Commodore 64? Neither did I, but sharp-eyed reader Ryan Koetstra found* these images on a classic video game forum and wanted to share...White Knuckle Scorin'!!!






*created, because he is a great man

Here's what I got...

I'm at a point right now where my 9-5 (or 9-6, or 9-7) job is putting a drain on my creativity so I've just stopped worrying about Calamity of Challenge. Luckily I'm not feeling like fully throwing the towel in but the mental energy needed to write and draw is missing so the last three pages I've started are unfinished and I can't say when I'll get back at it.

These are samples from pages I can't seem to finalize...

ART F'R SALE!!!

Three pieces here - email me at loafdish@gmail.com if interested or to make an offer...first up is my cover for the second issue of the Dark Horse Digital release of SABERTOOTH SWORDSMAN.

The image measures 9" x 14" on an 11x17 piece of 100# Bristol. 

$350.00






Next up are two pieces that I did as commissions for SUPER7 a few years back. They were meant as potential promo art for their DESTROY ALL KAIJU series  

***CORRECTION: This art is indeed being used for the backers on these figures. The Crystal-Mecha sold at SDCC will not have the backer but later versions will. The Fossilla figure has my art on the backer. Shows what I know. Thanks to Frank at SUPER7 for the heads up***

If you are a SUPER7 collector or just dig robots and kaiju then these are some neat curiosities to maybe own and frame and put in your toy room.

FOSSILLA - 11x17, black ink on 100# Brsitol

SOLD





Crystal-Mecha - 12x18, black ink on 100# Bristol

$125




**FIGURES NOT INCLUDED**

Designed by Brian Flynn

Well, here's something...

These are some Madman sample pages I did earlier this year. Take a look. Redrawn and recolored later on down that old dusty highway? Perhaps.

Not catching flies

Last week I was watching one of my cats as she attempted to bring down a fly in our kitchen. The paws would make occasional contact and her eyes would dart after the pest until after a few good swats the thing ended up on the floor. With both paws she covered the fly and got down close to examine it ( most likely with the intent of eating it). She seemed incredibly excited with the potential for triumph.

Unfortunately for her she lifted a paw to eyeball her prize and the fly took off.

That's what drawing is like for me sometimes and right now that fly is crawling on the ceiling and I'm too tired to jump for it. I need to wait till it gets tired as well.

Fucking flies.

SABERTOOTH SWORDSMAN HAS ARRIVED!!!

This is it. The first digital installment of Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley's wild and WILD SABERTOOTH SWORDSMAN is now available for download on the Dark Horse site.

https://digital.darkhorse.com/profile/3537.sabertooth-swordsman-1/

I've been watching these guys put this book together for the last year or so and every page I've seen is a stunner. Mike Allred says to buy this book. I say to buy this book, and what I say goes!

Also, the next digital issue has a cover by Mr. Me.

Here's a peek at/of it...

Denver Comic Con haul

My friend Adam and I paid a visit to the second annual Denver Comic Con yesterday and since I didn't have a table this year at which to make money I thought I'd spend a bunch of money.

I met Ramona Fradon...I had hoped to spend some time chatting with her but unfortunately they placed her table within a few dozen feet of a Rock Band stage so she was overwhelmed by people warbling classic rock tracks. This is the same thing that happened to Mike Allred last year and Allred got fed up and came to set up at our table (much to our delight). If I had a table for her to camp out at I would have offered it to Fradon since she's in her 70's and simply could not hear what her fans had to say. This is a shame because her work on the various titles she worked on with DC back in the Silver Age is brilliant. She should have had a place of honor at this con along side George Perez and Neal Adams. There is one modern artist whose name I won't mention that had a fancy special booth all to herself at the con and in my opinion this person couldn't sharpen Fradon's pencils. Such is life, however. People like robes and antlers I guess (oops!).

Anyhoo, I got about 20 more Silver age comics than this, but...






Look how great this guy The Destroyer is. Flames for eyes.


The Mike Sekowsky art on this Manhunter 2070 stuff is gorgeous...even with Colleta inks.




I didn't get this one sheet at the con but it was in my photo stash and I love it.
