artArt Appreciation Moment of the Day

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.  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. via Deviant Art

Mike Deodato Jr.quote of the weekVideoWolverine

Mike Deodata had a really great quote the other day that I wanted to share with everyone.
