HeroesCon 2018

I’ll be at HeroesCon 2018 this June 15-17Table AA-1102, front and center at Indie Island.

I even designed this year’s official badges, COPRA-style!

I will also be doing TWO PANELS Saturday & Sunday!

You read that right. I’ll be having a career spanning conversation with the mighty Keith Giffen!

This is the big one! Bring your checklists, your sketchbooks, and some comfortable shoes. I’ll be jabbing, sketching, and showcasing rare original comic pages. Bust your map out and look for the COPRA sign — I’ll see you there!

Avengers Ad Infinitum

What my version of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes looks like, Avengers Ad Infinitum, in which I pit Arno Stark, the Maestro & Beta Ray Bill against the Defenders and an army of fight slave Infinity War doppelgängers.

REVENGER FIFFE

Revenger #2 back cover that I drew for this new Chuck Forsman comic [self] published by Oily Comics. This is one of my favorite modern comics.

Private Eye Fiffe

This one’s for the Private Eye by Brian K. Vaughan & Marcos Martin. Major thanks to Panel Syndicate for delivering this great comic. See more guest artists here.

Ares: Bringer of War is George O’Connor’s latest installment in his massive Olympians book project. I drew this Ares head shot in honor of all those slain in the wake of George’s ambitious, destructive vision.

Dr. DOOM

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.

G A L A C T U S

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.

GALACTUS inks

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

G. I. Joe Samples

G.I Joe sample pages I staged, pencilled & inked back in 2011. Featured: Roadblock gunning some Cobra Troopers, Snake Eyes vs Storm Shadow, Baroness & Destro being voyeurs.

This was pre-Zegas, pre-self publishing, trying to work the work-for-hire hustle one last time before submitting to the notion that cartooning was gonna have to be a hobby. I set my scope to IDW thus (I’d worked for them before & they seemed to hire from a wide spectrum of ability that accommodated relative newcomers). Since G.I. Joe was the only title they published I was [very loosely] familiar with, I drew a sequence I thought would show my “strengths”. I don’t remember whether IDW rejected or flat out ignored my knocking on their door, but thank god they did either way! Not being able to land a job I knew I could crush was becoming my personal industry standard, but I wasn’t gonna let that dopey job get me down (no offense). Hence, Copra Press.

Anyway, I think I would’ve had a great time drawing Snake Eyes kick the crap out of anything, actually (and c’mon: Baroness). But as it stands, these pages represent the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.

FIFFE.Newcleus

The mighty NEWCLEUS, my contribution to the Hip Hop Family Tree vol. 2 by Ed PIskor. So glad I got the chance to honor one of my favorite acts of that era.

Here’s the reason why.

Bob Camp & Bill Wray have lent their talent to this outfit, so I’m definitely in good company!
