Entry 308: Blast From The Past- Part 29

Up till now these Blast From The Past entries have been in chronological order. I told the story of my path to getting work in comics and into the early years of my career. In the last entry I finally reached the point when I started this blog, which is kind of like the end of the line. Everything after that is already talked about on this blog. So I've decided to start skipping around to talk about some random projects that I've never talked about or just have more to say about. So, here's a pretty good one.

Entry 307: Lets hit the road!

Hello blogness my old friend. I've come to blog with you again.

So much to catch up on! Like for instance, we are right in the middle of the 5 issue mini series Bebop & Rocksteady Hit The Road! Depending on when you read this, issue 3 is about to come out, or it's out, or it's been out for years and is being celebrated as one of the best single comics ever created. Look, I don't know when you are reading this.

Entry 306: S.H.I.E.L.D. Penultimate Issue

This entry is about S.H.I.E.L.D! And it's not a SHIELD Update entry or a Blast From the Past entry. This is the first time in 6 years that I am blogging about a current issue of Shield.

 S.H.I.E.L.D. #5 (VOL2) IS OUT! None of us would believe it until we'd seen it with our own eyes, but it's here.

Entry 305: Blast From the Past- Part 28

In 2007 I went clear-line style for a few issues of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I went from rendering everything completely in gray-tones in my first Star Wars issues, to scaling back a little, and now I was jumping to pure clear lines with no rendering.

Entry 303: Bebop, Rocksteady, PAKLIS, & You!

If you'd have told me, ten years ago, that I'd someday be working on my eleventh comic about Bebop and Rocksteady, I'd have done a spit take and then laughed openly in your face. And that spit take? Not water, but a sandwich... Because I used to eat sandwiches instead of drinking water. All my moisture was derived from sandwiches.

Entry 302: So Venomized

Another VENOMIZED variant cover!

The other Venom cover I did was the one where Ghost Rider is Venomized. You can see that here: Entry 290

This time the idea was to do a classic Venom scene. Now the truth is, I don't know much about Venom. I really wouldn't know any of his classic scenes. So if I had said yes to the job, I'm sure they would have come back at me with a bunch of scenes they thought would work and I'd chose one. But I don't like taking jobs unless I can already see a cool thing to do with it. What if I took the job, they sent me the references, and I just wasn't inspired. So before I took the job I asked my buddy Ben Bates, the only person I know who knows anything about Venom, if he could think of an interesting Venom scene. I was looking for something that wasn't generic, something that could only have happened with Venom. Ben pointed me to this scene from Amazing Spider-Man #300 by the great Todd McFarlane.
