Color Me Ghostly

I should know who the artist is for this but their name escapes me right now. Let me know and I'll give them the credit they deserve. Coloring by me of course.

Another Great Comic From My Past

Not really a comic but close enough for this blog. This was the first (of many) issues of this classic magazine that I ever bought. I was about 8 at the time. What were my mom and dad thinking? I've still got it, although now a little ragged from all the readings. I had a great childhood.

Home, Sweet Home...

...I wish.

Giant Robot, please

Creeeeeeee-py. If anyone knows the artist, please let me know.

If I Were A Six-Year-Old Girl...

... these are the kind of dollhouses I would want.  Heck, I'm a 52-year-old man and I'd still like to have these.

Places I Would Like To Live

Needless to say, I'm a little bit of an introvert and a recluse.  If anybody knows who took this picture, send me their information and I will gladly credit them.

Love Those Giant Robots...

A couple different versions of my own giant robot that I did using AutoCAD(!) from way back in the day. That only seems like about a million years ago.  

Recent Readings

Lately I've been reading my "new" comics in batches. Usually this amounts to a stack of 3 or 4 mini-series, some that have been out for a while, that I've recently purchased. I'm really enjoying the current group so I thought I'd share what they are. Just in case someone out there is looking for something good to pick up.


Not necessarily a big Scott Snyder fan (I haven't read any of his Batman or anything else for that matter) but I tend to love horror comics and had heard some good things so when I came across all six issues cheap, I thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did. The story is creepy, the art by Jock is too, and it's not what I expected at all. Dark and disturbing - very good stuff.

Captain Victory

I love pretty much anything from Joe Casey (easily in my top 3 writers list) and this seemed like a concept right in his wheelhouse. The art is by numerous artists and not at all like most of the current "popular" stuff that people seem to like. Since I can't stand most of that, this is a good thing. This reminds me how much I miss "Godland". Cosmic and big-picture in all the right ways

Kings Watch

Another writer I will follow almost anywhere (Jeff Parker). Not particularly a fan of these characters but I trusted Jeff to make them interesting and he delivered. Just plain old pulp fun.

... and one last second addition to the group...

Mysterius the Unfathomable

Somehow I missed this when it first came out and I'm so glad I finally came across it. More great writing by Jeff Parker and some unbelievable art by Tom Fowler. I'm not sure what to compare this to - Doctor Strange by way of Mad magazine maybe? That doesn't really do it justice though. Highly recommended.

More Great Comics From My Past - The Greatest Non-Team Ever...

This was the first Defenders comic I ever bought. The main reason was that the Hulk was my favorite comic character. He still is actually. And when I say "he", I mean the REAL Hulk, not all those other pale imitations, of course. I always loved the fact that the Defenders rarely got along but were willing to band together for the greater good.

Color Me Green

More coloring by me. Artwork by Art Adams of course.

Cool Places and Buildings

For a long time, I was (and still am to a lesser degree) an architect in my day job. As a result, I have a large collection of pictures of places and buildings that speak to me on some level. Because I'm a generous type of guy, I'll be sharing them with you occasionally. Here's one now. If you're familiar with this site or it's history, send me the details and I'll include them. The Scotch/Irish part of my heritage loves not only buildings like this but the hills and grey clouds too. That's my idea of a perfect vacation.

Great Comics From My Past

This was one of the first comics I actually bought for myself (as opposed to someone, usually my very cool uncle, giving it to me.) It's still one of my favorites with great Neal Adams art.

More Giant Robots

At least I think they're robots - I guess they could just be giant aliens. Unfortunately I'm not sure who did this very cool painting/drawing. If you know, let me know and I'll give them the credit they deserve. And maybe they can tell me if they're robots, aliens, or - better yet - alien robots.

Color Me Strange

Here's a slightly re-worked version of the ad art for the much-anticipated, sadly-never-to-appear Stern/Miller Dr. Strange series.

Giant Robot Time!

As you can tell from the quote and picture over there to the right, I agree with Mr. Tesla that giant robots are indeed a very good thing. Consequently, I'll be featuring them here pretty regularly.  Today's is one of my favorites, courtesy of Dan Burgess.
