clone wars

okay, so even though i've had the entire series piling up on the tivo, i didn't get around to watching any until AFTER doing my batch of topps clone wars sketch cards... but i do dig it!
above is a sample of some of the color cards i did (most were in b/w for deadline purposes)... pretty sure thee cards hit stores soon.

well, the 'haps halloween spooktacular (with guest art on two stories by by rich woodall and none other than fred freakin' hembeck!) is out in finer comic shops everywhere, and the final issue of iron man : armor wars should be out next week (and the trade is already scheduled for february of 2010).

been hard at work on my next project and getting moving of the next 'haps story as well... seems the years of bad posture hunched over the drawing board have taken their toll and i needed to see a chiropractor about it (after a few visits, i'm already feeling better than i've been in ages... and not waking up with shooting pain, so there's that!)

been enjoying some great tv lately (can't believe mad men's season is close to ending already! and the guilty pleasure of sons of anarchy is getting better and better... finally getting into parks and recreation and community keeps getting better, and the office and 30 rock are strong as ever) and got out to see where the wild things are last week was just blown away by it.

back to the drawing board (and happy halloween, folks!),

Woo! Nice! I'm in the same boat as you regards this series. Up until last week, I'd only ever seen the amazing Rookies episode with all the Clones, and then I just ploughed through the entire lots over a span of a few days. In fact, it's weird you posted this today, cause I just watched the season one finale today!

My favourite character is Obi-Wan, and I love his animated design. In fact, I love all the design-work for the CG series. I think the biggest triumph of the show is that it has made me like the character of Anakin!

I also love the fact that it sits on a comfortable balance between the movies and the earlier animated Clone Wars shorts regarding the use of the Force. In the earlier stuff the Jedi were gods, able to destroy entire armies with a wave. In the movies, they just push and pull mostly. This is actually my favourite portrayal of how Force powers work.

Keep up the great work!

Glad to hear you think 30 Rock is still strong, Craig, as I agree, though some are saying it has been off this year.

On the not quite as strong as it once was front, I'm getting the feeling that Dollhouse's surprise renewal caught the creative folks so off guard - especially after doing that great "series final" episode only available on the dvd - that they really aren't sure where to go with the show. That may not be a problem going forward as the network has pulled the show for the November sweeps period and that, my friends, is never a good sign.

On the plus side, Parks and Recreation just got their pick up for the full season.

My chiropractor changed my life. Glad to hear yours helped you as well. Welcome to the cult, brutha.

SONS OF ANARCHY is a show I've been really curious about. Looks like SOPRANOS on bikes which is not necessarily a bad thing. Is there a DVD set? I need to catch up on DOLLHOUSE. I loved the second half of last season but I haven't seen the "final" episode Brian mentioned. That kind of irks me.

FRINGE continues to be a ton of fun and I haven't been this excited about a show since X-FILES and early LOST. (Okay. ALL of LOST.) And HOUSE has a great subplot going on this season that has me hooked again.
