Next Issue Project #3: Crack Comics #63

This sucker is still being slammed together, but I just received the art for a story I wrote featuring the Red Torpedo. Art by Frank Fosco and Erik Larsen, with Erik providing the color. Really pleased with the way it came out:

The book was originally due out in December, but my story was a late addition (despite being written two years ago), and I’m not really sure when it’s going to drop now. I’ll let you know if I hear anything.

NEXT ISSUE PROJECT: CRACK COMICS #63:

Captain Triumph! The Clock! Spitfire! Molly the Model! Alias the Spider! Space Legion! Some of the greatest creations from yesterday are brought back to life by some of the greatest creators of today! Fans have marveled over the years as, one by one, characters from comics’ Golden Age have been revived for a modern audience. The NEXT ISSUE PROJECT is an ongoing series that continues a classic discontinued title for a modern audience! All stories are complete, self-contained and cool as all hell! All books are Golden Age sized, but these aren’t simply an homage to Golden Age comics: They’re updated classics by modern masters for a new generation!

PLANET COMICON!

I always have a good time at Chris Jackson’s Planet Comicon shows, but this year I’m especially looking forward to the show. Chris and crew have roped in a gaggle of collaborators and good pals, and I can’t wait to see everyone.

Check out the guest list and info here:

www.planetcomicon.com

 

And note that on Sunday I’ll be taking part in a panel with collaborators/pals Jason Latour, Tony Harris and Ben Templesmith:

2:00-2:50 p.m. – Independent Visions in the Mainstream: What is mainstream, anyway?

Join visionary creators Tony Harris (Starman, Ex Machina), Jason Latour (Noche Roja, Wolverine), Ben Templesmith and B. Clay Moore (Hawaiian Dick, JSA Classified) as they discuss how they apply their artistic approach to various genres and publishers.

 

You’ll want to come hear all of our accents crash against each other, if nothing else.

Antiquing in KC

A respite from work blogs.

Spent the day out and about with my wife, prowling through antique shops. I snapped shots of some bits and pieces.

Spotted this beautiful framed Italian movie poster in a Mission antique shop.

The same place featured this amazing fifties era bar. The top slid open, revealing storage and a pop-up tray with drink holders. If only I had $350 on hand…

Almost worth buying for the cover alone.

This lonely, ripped EL BOMBO comic was sitting on a display case.

Awesome early seventies(?) chess game (“Smess”). Great graphics and cool pieces. Spotted in Westport.

You’ve had dreams about naked babies and swans and boats, right? This was evidently a thing once upon a time, because the same shop had another naked babies and swans painting in a different setting.

I love this primarily because someone once had it hanging on a wall in a place they lived.

Awesome title. Colorful cover.

Requisite geek content. Scotty and Sulu hanging out in Independence.

This sucker was about four feet tall. Some kind of whacked-out store display for shoes, I suppose. The drumming clown looks so sad, though…

Creepy shit. She’s gonna eat that dog, and he knows it.

This fine artist had many such fine paintings stacked in a corner of a fine antique shop in Waldo.

Into the digital breach

HAWAIIAN DICK: THE LAST RESORT just went up on Comixology:

http://www.comixology.com/digital/7883/Hawaiian-Dick-The-Last-Resort-1-of-4-

Curious to see the response it gets. I’ve held off on digital distribution for a while with Dick and Battle Hymn, but they really should be available in all formats, so here we go…

Related, I’m working on an original digital concept with artist Ryan Browne (please look: http://www.godhatesastronauts.com), and details on that sucker should be released shortly.

I have an even bigger digital project in the hopper, but it’s way too early to discuss the details, provided they all fall properly into place…
