more marvel on the way!

so, looking at the latest solicits for marvel books in february, cat's outta the bag... after wrapping up spider-man loves mary jane 5 (and currently putting issue 5 of the haps to bed FINALLY!), i've jumped right onto another sweet project... 4 issues of marvel adventures featuring CAPTAIN AMERICA! there's gonna be 4 issues (pretty sure they're rotating characters monthly, so the deadlines not killer and will allow me to keep up with the haps) with 2 stories (modern day and 1940's) written by scott gray and roger langridge (who did those great fin fang four stories a while back)...

was gonna post some sketches of cap, but i've been too busy with haps 5, so here's a zatanna commission i finished from a while back (and i was too lazy to write the blog entry title backwards...).

and on that note, back to the haps! i'll post some cap stuff later this week.

(only 1 more shield EVER?! i can't imagine how it's gonna end... this week's confession was mindblowingly intense...)

brand new day

feels like we're watching history unfolding before our eyes and it's pretty amazing... here's hoping president elect obama can start to set this nation back on track (but it certainly won't be easy, with the economic turmoil and unpopular wars... and just a bit of extra pressure being the first black president and all).

so, getting ready to head out tomorrow to wizard world texas ... i'll be in a few panels and signings throughout the weekend, as well as in artist alley  booth 2720b... if you're there, swing on by and say "hey!"

so, since i'm short on time, let's cut to the chase... here's a piece i did for an article in the umass dartmouth alumni magazine about a few of us who got into comics (me, bob almond, dave tata, norman lee and bettina kurkoski)... 

back to work!

forgot to mention... even with all the election hullaballoo, i did manage to watch the shield on tivo... holy crap! talk about feeling the noose tightening... only 3 (!?!) more episodes left.
