Not this week - but two weeks ago - I landed my #2 grail of all time after a long time waiting and watching!  Thanks to Ben H. for parting with this beauty.  Love and Rockets #31 cover.

God, what a time capsule to a different Era. The style and look of it appears as modern as any Image or indie published book today. But when you look at the content, it couldn't scream anymore of a bygone era. Someone smoking, siting in the back seat of a stationwagon style vehicle with blankets. Boombox present, people actually engaging each other with no cellphones in view, and people looking somewhat disheveled without spending hours and hundreds to design the look. I never gave a cr@% about love and rockets before, but i look at this cover and i see something beyond nostalgia. This appears almost like a work of fine art. It just captures a time perfectly. Great pick up.

Back in 1984, a precocious Mike Mignola drew this incredible Art Deco-inspired Marvel Fanfare #16 title splash featuring Namor, the Sub-Mariner emerging from the sea. I love the hand-drawn masthead details and bold composition of heavy black forms-- a signature style in Mignola's later work on Hellboy and Dracula.  My first piece from this talented and popular artist.

New Art Day - Wallace the Brave by Will Henry
 
Wallace the Brave is a new (2015) strip that now appears in my local paper - Houston Chronicle - and a 100 or more others. I've read it on-line for awhile, but never thought to get a strip until I did.
 
This strip is a clear descendant from Skippy (Percy Crosby), Tippie (Edwina Dumm), Peanuts (Charles Schulz), Calvin and Hobbes (Bill Watterson), and Cul de Sac (Richard Thompson).
 
That's a mighty high standard for any strip, but WtB feels that way.
 
Anyway, write your paper, buy the book, or read GoComics (all the links are in the Description on my CAF post). Click the image to go to the CAF page.

As the Skrulls have kind of made their big screen debut this week with the Captain Marvel photos, here’s a page drawn by Marshall Rogers from Silver Surfer #6 which I believe is the first time in print we see the origin of the Skrulls.

I went to the Long Beach Comic Con today. Picked up 2 pieces of art. I got home and another was waiting by the front door via UPS.

New Art Day - Castle Waiting, Volume 2, Chapter 8 (last three pages) by Linda Medley.

Linda Medley created Castle Waiting as a way to explore her interest in what happened to the background characters while the protagonists lived "happily ever after."

Recently, she decided to sell the two books by the chapter. A friend of mine and I decided to buy one and divy it up between ourselves and a few friends.

I chose the last three pages in the book. At this point of the story, Lady Jain is looking for a quiet place within the castle to make her own. With some help, she actually discovers an entirely new section.

Several things attracted me to these pages - chief among them is the expressions shown. Jain is thrilled to explore the new area knowing that her child will be safe with her friends. Linda captures the joy of this very young woman freed temporarily of the responsibility of caring for her child. I can "grok" that. 1f642.png
