Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the list and the list will be closed as soon as my slots fill up or this posting is reblogged as closed. Taking a note after the wonderful Kris Anka, I will close the list at a number I feel appropriate to tackle, and should I find myself with more time to complete more before the con, the list will open up again. :) Pieces are to be picked up and paid for at the con. I will confirm whether you made the list by email by the end of today. Cheers!
HeroesCon commission list open tomorrow from 10:00am-3:00pm pacific time or until I max out my list. Time stamp on your emails will determine who makes the list. I will confirm whether or not you made the queue shortly after. Full details will be in the post tomorrow. Caio!
It’s Wednesday and for the comics initiate that means NEW COMICS! This week I noticed that Doop has a new series so, to mark the occasion, I’ve whipped up this little drawing. Enjoy!
In case you missed it, I’m doing a doodle a day. Here are the latest posts:
REVIEW: JASON AARON AND JASON LATOUR’S ‘SOUTHERN BASTARDS’ FEELS LIKE GOING HOME AGAIN
By John Parker
It was beginning to feel like Jason Aaron and Jason Latour were holding back. Not holding back their talents, obviously, but not showing us just how savage they could be. In the year and a half since the conclusion of Scalped, Aaron has written a slew of great Marvel books. After the last issue of the razor-sharp Loose Ends, Latour penned an arc of Winter Soldier and is now taking on Wolverine and the X-Men. Since the ends of their respective creator-owned series, everything that each creator has done has been top-notch superhero comics. But they were still superhero comics.
As great as their work in superheroes may be, Aaron and Latour have done their best work far outside that realm. In their best books, bullets kill you dead, horrible people do horrible things, and there always seems to be a redneck around the corner. After hanging around the superhero world for a while, the pair team up for a trip down south with the new redneck crime series Southern Bastards. And baby, it feels like going home again.
In Southern Bastards, a grown man returns to his childhood home to put the past behind him for good. Forty years after he left, Earl Tubb comes back to Craw County, Alabama, where BBQ, religion, and college football reign supreme. With his uncle going into a nursing home, Tubb just wants to close down the family home and leave as quickly as possible. But shortly after he arrives, old memories come back to haunt him, and he is soon drawn into the dark underbelly of violence living in his old home.
this is my second book, OPERATION MARGARINE. it was just published by ADHOUSE BOOKS. it makes its official debut at the MOCCA festival this weekend (april 5 & 6) but you can get a copy prior to the show at DESERT ISLAND on thursday, april 3.
this book was a ton of work and was probably the most challenging thing i’ve finished to date, and it’s the project i’m most proud of. i can’t wait to unleash it onto the world!!!
big thank you to chris pitzer for the fabulous design work and for being an all around great person to work with even if he doesn’t like the mets (WHY)
Unh… The Meta are “OK” I guess… It’s cool that their logo was designed by Ray (Cotton Woods) Gotto. AND… i like the history of their colors. ;)
