Emerald City Comic Con 2015

Was the best Emerald City ever!!

Great show!

I had a few new prints, and a killer spot, but the show was as good as ever.

Look for these two as new tee designs soon...



And here's some Agent Carter fan art...


Its simply one of the best shows bar none.
They pack in an amazing crowd of comic fans every year, so here's hoping new owners Reed Pop don't change it too radically.

We stayed in the con hotel this year and got to see many of the guests, often while walking the dog (including Stan the Man), which doesn't normally happen while being behind the table at shows, so that was fun. And we got to spend time with many of our friends old and new, and sample some truly amazing restaurants to celebrate my wife's birthday in style.

The Icon Grill is always a must for us.
But we happened onto Quinn's, which is on Pike street about a mile north of the con, and it has a truly amazing offbeat pub menu, and super tasty house beverages. Highly recommend seeking them out... and you must get the spiced bacon caramel corn ;)
And of course, the Taphouse, just a block from the con is always good!

Here's some of the cooler cosplay I saw (the gender-bent Wolverine was too cool)...










And finally, here's a Rocket Raccoon sketch cover I did at the show...

ZOMBIE TRAMP: more samples

As I've mentioned before, I'm currently working on Zombie Tramp, the new ongoing monthly series that we're publishing at Action Lab: Danger Zone (for which I am the publisher). The creator Dan Mendoza is still writing the series, but I am now co-writing it with him, as well as coloring the book.

I've shared some samples here, and continue to do so on my DeviantArt gallery, but thought I'd show some more color samples here on the blog.

Here are some pages from the recently released issue 2
And issue 3 is due out shortly, so here's some work from that.
I'm currently finishing up colors on issue 4, which is the completion of our first story arc. All of the samples you've seen here so far are from our main series artist TMChu, but after issue 4 we have a few guest artists lined up, who are all also amazing, and I look forward to working on their art too!
Also, with issue 5, the next few issues feature my writing more prominently, with the stories being fully scripted by me, with Dan's input (mainly on Zombie Tramps dialogue and behavior). It's been an interesting give and take so far with our partnership on sharing these creative duties (the writing). With a natural ebb and flow to things depending on the issue/story/circumstance. Its definitely not a pre-determined formula, but its served the book really well so far, as its been a lot of fun to write, and we've come up with some really great stuff.

The breakdown on the next few issues is:
Issue 5 - "ROADSIDE ATTRACTION": Motorcycles, werewolf truckers, zombie bikers, and death proof big rigs! - Artwork by Dennis Budd
Issue 6 - "ILLEGAL FIGHT CLUB": Zombie Tramp pulls into an Arizona truck stop with a secret fight club that forces Mexican illegals to fight to the death! - Artwork by Anna Lencioni
Issue 7 - "'FAST' FOOD": Stopping in the wrong Southwest chicken joint lands Janey in the nugget grinder! - Artwork by Winston Young

 Covers for issue 5-7, by Dennis Budd, and TMChu (all with my colors)

 As you'll see, we've got some truly talented artists lined up on the book (be sure to click the links on their names). And I can tell you, they are doing some amazing work! Its all very exciting.

I'm currently scripting the 8th issue, and Dan has finished issue 9 and working on issue 10... so we're already working into April 2015! So stay tuned into my social for updates, and here as well.

FAN ART: Dr Who

I'm loving the new season of DR WHO, and also quite like the new 12th Doctor as played by Peter Capaldi.

Earlier this year, during the 50th anniversary celebration, I started a fan art cast lineup of all 12 Doctors, but got pulled away and only ever finished the first Doctor. Upon returning to work on it just recently, I decided it was best to work my way from the most current Doctors back in time. So, I've recently completed my take on number 12, the new Peter Capaldi Doctor...
And also Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor.
I'd watched a little bit of Doctor Who when it was on PBS in my youth, with the 4th Doctor, Tom Baker (he of the frizz fro and the impossibly long scarf). And I tried to watch it when the new series began several years ago and it was airing on Sci-Fi (back before it was SYFY)... but couldn't get into it. As the show went on however, I kept hearing folks rave about it, so when they rebooted with the new Matt Smith 11th Doctor regeneration I decided to give it another shot, and absolutely fell in love. It's truly a quirky, and very British, treat of a show, and Matt Smith was incredible in the role. That said, its great how the show reboots itself and casts new actors in the role, so I'm fine with the companions, and even the Doctor himself changing.

At any rate, here are the two I have fully finished, and I hope to get to the rest of the Doctors farily soon (David Tennant is already on his way)!

SDCC 14 wrap up

Just to record some stuff that I posted around the socials here on the blog for prosperity...

At San Diego this year, not only did Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple stop by the table and check out my fan art, he was cool enough to pose and endorse JMart ;)
Also, a fan took my cast fan art to be signed by all of the cast, and Lauren Cohan posted a shot of her (and Steven Yeun) posing with it to her Instagram...
And to finish off here with a Walking Dead wrap-up trifecta, here's a Daryl commission I did at the show (which is an homage to the classic Spider-Man issue featuring the first appearance of Punisher)...
It was the best show ever, and I can't wait to go back next year!

Be sure to check out my social feeds from late July for tons of cosplay and show floor pics!!

San Diego Comic-Con 2014

Lucky number 11 for me.
Been exhibiting since 2003, it was in fact, my first show ever. Almost had a movie deal the first night. The show long ago doubled in size from what it was that first year for me, and has become such a giant chaotic beast, but I still love it. So many good times and good friends had and made.
I'll be in the small press area again, space L16.
This year I'm lucky enough to table next to my good friend and partner-in-crime Dave Dwonch.
Yep, look out San Diego convention center!!!
I'll have some brand new fan art prints, and most all of the Danger Zone books. As well as the debuting in mere hours Zombie Tramp issue number 1 - co-written by yours truly (and colored, and lettered).
So now I'm off to some last minute items and then in the air first thing tomorrow AM for sunny San Diego.
See you there!

Zombie Tramp

I've been working on a new comic for some time that's starting to come out now, Zombie Tramp.

There was just a special origin story in the Action Lab: Danger Zone Free Comic Book Day book this past weekend, and there's a new ongoing monthly series due out this July, that you can pre-order now via comic shops. I'm co-writing, coloring, and lettering the book. And since it's Danger Zone, I'm also publishing it!

My buddy Dan Mendoza is the creator of Zombie Tramp, and you may recall, I previously published the book via my Super Real Graphics imprint a couple years back. Well now we're rebooting the book with some help for Dan (who's still writing it), including an amazing new artist, TMChu. I'll be helping Dan plot and script the book, and even have a stand alone issue that I fully wrote coming up with issue 5 (along with an old, and awesome, partner in crime on art).

I've been a fan of the book since I first read it (after initial skepticism at the title/concept), as it truly is an inspired mash-up of zombies, horror, fetish, grindhouse, and supernatural mythology. A super sexy uber violent fun time!

Here's a look at the issue 1 (regular) cover (note, these aren't my colors here)

and a page from the FCBD story, with lines by TMChu, and colors by me

I'm also excited to say the book features some variant covers by old friends and collaborators, Jerry Gaylord, and Josh Howard!

You can pre-order the brand new issue 1 in Previews now for release to comic shops this July - Diamond order code MAY14 0974

Or stay tuned to full info on the series at the Danger Zone tumblr HERE

Wizard World Portland tomorrow!

The 2nd annual Wizard World Portland starts tomorrow, and I'll once again be exhibiting in artist alley (B62).

I've created some new fan art just in time for the show... an updated Walking Dead cast shot.
I'll also have copies of the 80's Undead trades!!
The books look great, and it's really exciting to have a second book of mine to put on the shelf!

It's going to be a good show.
