GI joe's Snake Eyes in : CROM RULEZ THE DEAD

 I went back to basics on a some "MARVEL" Strathmore comic stock I had lying about. good old fashion pencils on inks laid down with a Mocron .005 & a Micron brush tip which I love. Just a nice little scene with our buddy Snake Eyes using a Cobra Officer for a shield. The tag "Crom Rule the Dead" is a little fan service for a friend a mine who sent me a pic of that particular tag spray painted in the NYC subway tunnels.

The ipad is cute for doodles but Paper & Inks are my bread and butter.

Max Landis deconstructs "The Death of Superman" and shines a floodlight on what's wrong with comics today.

Max Landis, son of famed 80's movie director John Landis ( Animal House, Blues Brothers) pulls at the string of the horrible 90's comic book debacle known as the "Death of Superman" and unravels everything that's wrong with mainstream comics today.

It's a very entertaining little video that runs at about 17 minutes.

also keep an eye out for cameos by Elijah Wood, Simon Pegg, Mandy Moore, Morgan Kratz, Ron Howard just to name a few.

(I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.)

And we're back!

I took a little time off to tend to the family and figure out what the hell I'm going to write about on this little corner of the interwebs...my conclusion is that I'm not going to over think about my posts, good or bad it's all going to be more of a stream of consciousness kind of blog.

(with the occasional fan service)

Ok here we go!
