Alien

Friday night – Chris and I were at Zeus Comics Live Art Benefit For the Japanese Tsunami (not like, benefiting tsunamis, you know, more helping the Red Cross take care of people who were displaced by it, and, oh shit, you knew that, I bet) and this comic was our piece. It was purchased by a supremely generous person and we were honored to be able to help the show out. Thanks to Jordan and the Billiard Bar for hosting the event. Here’s the original art of the comic if you were curious:

Chris also did an awesome jam piece of Punk Storm and Longshot with Robert Wilson IV but we don’t have a copy of it, so if you’re the guy or lady who bought it and have a scan of it, send it to us so we can post it!

Some of the cool people we met were: The Zeus/Variants crew: Richard, Keli, Barry, Jason, Chris, Sean, Luke, Ken (extra thanks for hosting our asses), Parker, and Ken’s mom who was kind enough to show interest in our stuff even though the word “fuck” was all over the place and I was continuously stroking a phallic balloon.

If you’ve never seen the web series The Variants, please check it out. It gets so much right about the comic shop experience, the people who work there, and the people who shop there. We’ve all gotten sucked into that conversation with the guy who wants to know if Yoda could beat up Psylocke and if you’ve never been in that situation then you probably are the guy who wants to know if Yoda could beat up Psylocke. (Psylocke would win, btw.)

"Write More Good" & LBFA Signing

Also, thanks to the people at the signing who bought something or just promised to check out our site. I hope you didn’t find the effort you made to get here wasted. You guys are my bros. And bros before hos. (Eugene is the ho, if you were wondering.) (Oh, yeah, Brandon, Emily, and George, thanks for coming up from Austin! And thanks for the cookies, Andi! I ate the head off the bunny.)

    The Superman/alien theme is definitely pro – run with it. I have visions of a mini superman wrapped around a crew member’s face, maybe a little “Enemy Mine” action… ooh ooh a mini Super-bust protruding from a belly, telling Quaid to start the reactor!

    But seriously, it was great to see y’all again.. and thank you for the sweet sketch – Batman wins again!

    Love the inking in the strip, especially the middle panel. So scumbly!
    Whatever sorta crapped-out on-the-road tools you were using there, stock up.

    I believe the second panel was the plot of a Curt Swan story, “The Mysterious Chest-Bursting Midget Superman!”

    Happy Chest-Bursting Superman was creepy/awesome at the same time.
