on the shelves today!


well, today's the day the 'haps trade finally hits comic shops, online retailers and book stores (that's one last shameless plug for the trade... now it'll be the 'haps' "second chances" series starting in october)... we're pretty proud of this one (and even more proud of "second chances")...

studio 60 is off to a good start, i'll keep watching (well, tivoing... i'm still gonna tune into csi:miami - you're right, dana, caruso is so crazy good/bad these days! - or monday night football )

picked up the season one collection of my name is earl yesterday (the "lost pilot" is pretty amusing stuff)... all these tv shows on dvd are great to watch... who needs reruns these days?

oh yeah, that color piece above is mento from the teen titans (gotta say, bill ... i've had some obscure requests, but this one takes the cake... so far)

well, back to work...

-c (barely making it in on a wednesday post.. not a great way to start my m/w/f plan... but we'll see)

Nice to see Mento up there, Craig. That's his look from the original Doom Patrol series. The character is Beast Boy's adopted father; he later went crazy and fought the New Teen Titans early in that series. He was also among the circle of mystic heroes who helped John Constantine during Alan Moore's classic Swamp Thing run (#50), where he gets driven even more insane.

That's not THAT obscure... ;P

Oh, yeah, he also kicked major butt as leader of the Doom Patrol in season 5 of the Teen Titans cartoon, so "the kids" probably recognize him... :)

That Mento is awesome!!!

You get these to look great, do you have to tweak them much after scanning... everytime I scan something like this (or in color for that matter) it looks horrible... any tricks you wanna share, or do my scanning skills just suck? :)

I saw this bad boy down in Baltimore and Craig did a great job of recreating the colors in
the scan. The black against the purple really makes the image pop.

Brian.

P.S. So did Mento survive Crisis?

The Fall Season so far.

Craig, I'm with you on Studio 60, as I liked Matt, Bradley and Amanda's characters and I'm a Sorkin fan since Sports Night.

As for Smith, the Mrs. and I will both be giving it a pass. I did not like any of the characters and found myself not caring about them or the heist.
