Guy Gardner

This was a suggestion from Twitter again. Thought it would be a good segue to remind you all that the Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps hardcover is out, which I have a couple of stories in with Peter Tomasi. ;)

And while you're picking that up, the Siege: Embedded Premiere Hardcover just came out and it looks gorgeous. It includes a bunch of my process/sketchbook pages in the back, if you're into that sort of thing.

Have a great weekend and thanks for lookin'! :)

Thor: The Mighty Avenger #2 Preview

There is a preview of Thor: The Mighty Avenger #2 up at CBR! Only $2.99! On sale Wednesday!

Ulik (and Thor)!

Today I'm celebrating wrapping up the last of my side projects! I am now just working on Thor: The Mighty Avenger. As much as I have loved my recent side projects, it's been over a year since I had just one book to work on. Instead of working 112+ hours a week, I'll now be down to 90 or so! Yahoo! :D

Adam Strange & Alanna

I took suggestions on Twitter today, and although the suggestion was just for Adam Strange, I couldn't help but include Alanna. I have a soft spot for married characters. :)

I'm really sad to see Atlas end at issue 5, but I'm soothing my pain with Jeff Parker and Giancarlo Caracuzzo's Gorilla-Man mini-series.

"I'm really glad you picked me"

This is the card I made Laura for our 7th anniversary today.

If you haven't already, check out the Lunchnotes blog that Laura runs. She posts all the little cartoons I draw for her.

Today's sketch is Jack-in-the-Box from Kurt Busiek's Astro City. If you haven't yet read this, you really need to. And while you're at it, you should be following Kurt on twitter, because he is hilarious.

Wonder Girl

It's a good thing I have more work to do, otherwise I would sit and draw Wonder Girl costumes all day! :)

Monday, July 12, 2010


This was another Twitter suggestion. I think Ant-Man is awesome and wish he got more love! The costume above is my version of the 60's costume, which is how he'll appear in Thor: The Mighty Avenger #3!

Thor Week wraps up with Destroyer pounding Thor into the pavement! A huge heartfelt thanks to everyone who picked up (or is picking up) Thor: The Mighty Avenger #1. I appreciate all your kind words about the book!

Thanks also to everyone who entered the Thor Sketch Contest. Our winner was @Justin3000! Because there were so many awesome entries, I randomly selected another 5 for runner-up prizes of head sketches. Congrats to @Jew_Mafia, Jimmy L., Jack T., @wedgex and @WonderAli for the runner-up prizes.

We got such a kick out of seeing all the great photos sent in! I can't thank you all enough for making yesterday such a special day for Laura and I! :D

I also posted my Magnus, Robot Fighter sketch up on the Comic Twart blog this morning. Hope you enjoy!

Open for Business

Just wanted to let you guys know that I re-opened my Etsy Shop and as of right now it's got a bunch of sketches in it! Thanks for your patience while we moved!

If there is a sketch you're looking for and it's not listed, it's either been sold or is not for sale. Everything I have for sale is in the shop right now.

Pluto may be a bit obscure, but I'm bringing him and his mustache back! There just aren't enough characters with mustaches in comics these days.

As for the rest of THOR WEEK, I'm turning it over to you guys! Suggest a THOR character for me to draw in the comments to this post and I'll pick my favorites to draw the rest of the week.

Thor: The Mighty Avenger Contest Info

A while back, I teased about a contest for those of you that pick up Thor: The Mighty Avenger #1 the day it comes out. Here are the details:

1. On (next) Thursday, July 8th, when Thor: TMA comes out, take a picture of you holding the book.
2. Either @ me on Twitter with a link to your picture, or if you're not on Twitter, you can email your picture or a link to your picture to samneeart (at) gmail (dot) com.
3. One winner will be randomly chosen to receive a FREE 9 x 12 THOR SKETCH!

Only pictures received on Thursday, July 8th are eligible for the contest (ending at midnight Pacific time). I realize that this may exclude some of you who are outside the US or can't make it to your LCS on Thursday and I apologize. I'll plan another contest soon that will be open to everyone. *

Still on the fence about picking it up? There is a five page preview of the first issue over at Comics Alliance.

And what's this? The cover to issue #5, colored by the amazing Matt Wilson? Yep it is!

*This contest is not endorsed by or affiliated with Marvel Comics or it's parent company in any way, shape or form. In fact, let's not tell them about it, okay? ;)
