Baltimore Comicon and PIX

Daredevil and Elektra

I will be at Baltimore Comi-Con this weekend, at booth 1904 (Adhouse Books). I'll have my usual assortments of books, prints, and artwork as well as copies of my Ignatz-nominated Rambo mini-comic and a new book of commissions and other drawings.

Laura Park is having surgery

She has set up a donation page to help offset the cost of the emergency back surgery. Any amount you can spare will be greatly appreciated. If you're unfamiliar with Ms. Park's beautiful artwork, you can see lots of it here.

Thank you.

Scott Pilgrim, Milk & Cheese, Batman

Scott Pilgrim's Super Fun Party

Legendary St. Louis comic shop, the Star Clipper has posted some recommended graphic novels to read after you've enjoyed Scott Pilgrim. Street Angel clocks in at a respectable number 2.

Meanwhile, over at Comics Comics, you can see a poorly-scripted imitation of Evan Dorkin's Milk & Cheese duking it out with a poorly-drawn imitation of Neal Adams' Batman. Here are the original pencils:

This was an unused design that I kind of liked:

It was a very enjoyable job that included an invitation, map, projected images (that changed throughout the night depending on what was happening at the party), and large blown up prints of my drawings:
