aa1Agents of Atlas #1

To say that I am getting pretty bored with most of the mainstream titles out there would be putting it pretty nicely. That is why I have been so drawn to picking up the titles that don’t have the big names in them as of late. Like say Agents of Atlas.

I was hoping for something adventure based out side the confines of the weight of the rest of the world (which was pretty foolish of me since it had the Dark Reign banner on the top of the cover.) so I was pretty disappointed to find Osborn prominently featured in the first issue.

Having said that I did like the story. It leaves you not really sure which way there are going… Or at least it did me, having not read any of the stuff that came before. I have to say I also like the idea of this unique blend of characters operating out of their secret underground society. Something about this story just has an oldschool feel about it to me. Which if you haven’t guessed by now is something that I really get into.

I will keep picking this one up for awhile and hope that it lives up to my expectations.


Legion of Superheroes #50

All I will say about this is that someone really should be held accountable for their crimes.

Walking Dead #58

There is a big chunk in between when I stopped reading this and when I started back up… I really need to get caught up on that.

I think that Kirkman has done a good job with this book from the start. This issue is a prime example of why I think that. Rick finally returns to his home town to find out what has become of those he left behind (and stock up on the most important of supplies). On the trip home Rick finds out that his boy and him are a lot alike and becoming more so everyday.

When this book started up, I never thought that a zombie book would last this long… or at least last this long and stay good. Kirkman continues to keep the story moving in a entertaining way while making you care for what happens to this people… which of course makes you hate them, because in the zombie apocalypse no one lives forever.

Batman #686

I have been a fan of Neil since Sandman #8. So I had to give this book a read. It was ok. I have not been happy with the whole batman universe as of late… Not since Hush anyway. I just think that it has gotten blah. The fact that they let whats his name (whose work I have never cared for in the first place.) have run of the bat has just kind of left a bad taste in my mouth.

I think that is all I will say about that one.


12 Covers that made a geek…

When I was young… A long time ago. I had a handful of comics. Some of them where bought for me by my father on his way home from work. Some of them my step brother gave to me when on home on leave from the army, and some of them where given to me as a gift when I was in the hospital getting my tonsils out…

Here they are:


Batman #190
Captain America #211
Defenders #100
Eternals #12
Hulk #224
Hulk #254
Hulk #270
Hulk #273
Marvel Team Up #55
Marvel Two in One #26
Star Wars #1
Star Wars #2

So what is this post about? My goal is to recreate all twelve of those covers along with 12 covers that are just big favorites of mine in a series of cartoonish drawings that are 5 x 7 that I will then use as art around my studio space… Here is the first sample:
