While Atomic Robo is far and away one of the best comic book characters created by Scott Wegener and Brian Clevinger, Doctor Dinosaur runs a close second. Scott Wegener sketched up Doctor D. at a recent convention, and you can see the whole thing after the jump.
One of the reasons we started running the Art Appreciation Moments of the Day at Major Spoilers was to showcase sketches and original art by comic book artists that most of us would never see if we weren’t made aware of it.Â We haven’t run any convention sketches in a while, an we’re fixing that today with this Harley Quinn sketch by Keron Grant done at the Baltimore Convention.
Oni Press is in Seattle for this yearâ€™s Penny Arcade Expo West! September 4th – 6th we will be strutting our stuff at booth #3004. Come by and check out our eclectic library of video game inspired titles including the RPG meets real life graphic novel series North World!
In stores right now is the fifth issue in The Stand: American Nightmares arc.Â Things are starting to pick up for the survivors of the Captain Trips virus, and you can get a look at the issue after the jump.
With the 70th Anniversary of Marvel Comics upon us (already?), the company is bringing its original hero The Torch, back for more adventures, with Mike Carey writing.Â Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that arrives on September 2, 2009.
Here’s a sketch Dave did for a fan attending a convention featuring an iPod.Â Hmmm… maybe Major Spoilers should get someone like Dave or Gene Gonzales to whip up a Major Spoilers girl for the podcast logo?
Mike Deodata had a really great quote the other day that I wanted to share with everyone.
I got an email from a young comic artist wanabee who wanted to know how old I was when I started working at Marvel, so that he could have an idea how long it would take for him to break in, as well. He was feeling already too old. He’s nineteen.
I told him that age doesn’t matter.
One of the worst artists I know of started at Marvel when he was 20.
One of the best artists I know of — Hal Foster — started his immortal creation, Prince Valiant, when he was 40.
You can start at Marvel at 20 and be a zero. You can start at 40, never work for Marvel and yet be a genius.
