Super happy to have finally nabbed one of my favorite pages from Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run.  This was from a fill-in issue, but easily my favorite fill-in issue of all time.  It takes a half-reprint, half-dream issue and makes it really matter to the series story.  It's also the introduction of Cain and Abel in the DC /Vertigo universe, and as such, the story's full of fun wordplay.  The "Am I your keeper" panel gives me shivers every time I reread it.

Great googly moogly, I forgot a Heroescon purchase!

In my defense, we landed in Houston at 1:30pm on Monday and I had to fly out to London on an 8:30p flight. Given the time to get home, pack, and get back, I was lucky to scan and save as much as I did.

However, I was in such a rush that I left one piece on the scanner!

Please meet Hazel from the comic book series "Southern Cross" which is written by Becky Cloonan and drawn by Andy Belanger. Hazel is quite the character and I'm glad she's visiting!

As usual, click image to embiggen.

Finally uploaded a bunch of my more recent acquisitions to CAF.  This one's one of my favorites.  I finally checked Rick Leonardi off my X-Men artist list.  And while some of his earlier work was cool, this one is from X-Men 273, which was right in the middle of the X-Men run I read in Jr High.  I was way into the X-Tinction Agenda back then, and eagerly snatched up all the X-Men and related issues I could find.  I though this issue was a really cool follow up, with all the teams finally united and interacting.  And the issue had so many artists, it was just such a cool reading experience back then.  I also think Leonardi's Archangel came off really nice.  Really happy to have snatched this one up.

I have always been curious about the mechanics of doing a trade when two parties are in different cities.  

well - I just completed my first trade recently and happy to report it all went well.  

The other party was Will Gabri-El.  He's super nice and easy to deal with for anyone who's ever wondered what it's like to work with him.

On a funny note - it felt a bit like a hostage negotiation - as we each sent out the package on the same day and emailed tracking info using the same shipper.  To give you a visual- it reminded me of the Far Side cartoon by Gary Larson where, set in a forest - a hunter is exchanging a dear with another dear that is exchanging the man's human hunting partner.

Now to the art:

Today I posted a new addition to my Spidey gallery. It's a Marvel Team-Up cover.

Batman #681, page 16.  Grant Morrison, Tony Daniel, and Sandu Florea.  Conclusion to Batman R.I.P.

"But that’s the thing about Batman.  Batman thinks of everything.

The superior man thinks of evil that will come and guards against it. 
 –The Book of Changes

Obvious variations aside, there’s only one human body…206 bones, five major organs, 60,000 miles of blood vessels.

All it takes is time.

Days.  Months.  Years, spent memorizing the finite ways there are to hurt and break a man.  Preparing for all of them.

I’ve escaped from every conceivable deathtrap.

Ten times.  A dozen times.

I can slow my breathing and metabolism to control panic and conserve air.

Straitjacket’s kindergarten.  Locks, too.

Benchpressing a pine coffin lid through 600 pounds of loose soil that’s filling your mouth, crushing your lungs flat and shredding your dehydrated muscles?

That’s harder.

But far from impossible."

I just paid for this piece (and it's on its way to me) but I'm so excited that I wanted to share.  SUCH A COOL MOMENT.  Still gives me chills 10 years after first reading it.  And now this Bat-tastic moment is all mine.
