I was interviewed at The Comics Journal.

Back Cover

The image above is the original art for the back cover puzzle piece that ran in the original first 12 issues (it’s officially part of the original art community).

Anyway, about the interview. I cover everything, but I put a special spotlight on this impressionable comic:

Can’t get enough of my jabbering? You’re in luck. I was part of this massive oral history regarding a cultural relic: the trading card. Check out The Secret Origins & Lasting Impact of the Marvel Universe Cards, if only to at least to read Arthur Adams’ words.

Copra Bullet Montage

After last year’s first 12 issues of Copra, I dedicated the subsequent issues to some team members. Thirteen to Eighteen, six comics. You can find them all here, so get them now while supplies last! I’ve always wanted to say that.

But no, really… if those first 12 are any indication, these comics will remain out of pint until Round Three (and that may be a while). Here’s a handy rundown list, accompanied by little heads.

Don’t delay. Operators are standing by.

Okay, I’ll stop.

ZEGAS is back in print and available again! This is the title that started my self-publishing operation, Copra Press, and set the path for subsequent projects (Deathzone! & Copra). I’m still very proud of these comics and I couldn’t let them remain out of print much longer.

PACK B

If you’ve never read ZEGAS before, here’s your chance to catch up on all three issues: the ZEGAS PACK. If you’ve managed to get an issue here or an issue there, you can also pick and choose which one you need individually: Issues ONE, TWO, or ZERO!

PACK C

PACK D

The print run is still super limited, so get them now while they last!

Copra #18 has arrived! it’s the Xenia issue, the magic issue, the losing your grip on reality which is inconvenient for everybody because of your godlike powers issue.

It’s also the issue that brings this arc to a close. I’ve been focusing on key members of Copra issue by issue, and this Xenia story winds it all down while also setting up the next arc.

That was a small sampler of my favorite issue yet. And while I’m taking a hiatus between 6 issue story arcs, I can’t wait to jump back on and get into the reformed Copra team’s new adventures.

We’ll be back before you realize we were gone, but NOW – right this very second – get on board with Copra #18!

P.S. Zegas is back as well! More on that soon…

Dr. Doom was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. This is yet another Kirby design that I never even attempted to draw. Not a single doodle, not a sample page, nothing. And now? I’m afraid I have to give everything up and dedicate my life to Victor Von Doom.

You saw that right: final, pencil, prelim. Next: 500 Doom comics.

GALACTUS was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. This is my first time drawing this iconic Fantastic Four character. Drawing this quintessential Kirby design — drawing any of his creations, really — is a true privilege.

Above: the final piece. Below: as tight a pencil drawing as I can do and its preliminary sketch.
