another rich...and another...


well, first off, i can't tell you how thrilled i am that so many people logged in about scary movies and scary stories and all of that scary stuff. many people tell me that they read the blog but that they never comment (mostly 'cause you hafta sign up to comment, an inconvenience we're working on here at perhapanauts central tech support...) for those of you who logged on and logged in, thank you so much. it's really nice to see you and nice to get the feel of our little community here. again, i think we'll get a better sense of it in a month or so when we change some things up, perhapanautically.

but while we're on the subject of our little perhapanauts neighborhood, i'd like to take a moment to showcase...well, maybe not about highlight...a couple of OTHER talented riches--besides my pal, rich case, who i posted about a couple of weeks ago--who read the blog and log in periodically.

first is rich woodall, who signs in woodall...ummm...
i met rich a few years ago at a convention up in nashua, new hampshire--or wait, was it the boston show the year before...? anyway, rich and his buddy, matt talbot, were doing a cool black and white book called JOHNNY RAYGUN for the small ralph-run company of jetpack comics. craig had known them both and done a cover for them and gave me a few of their books. which i loved. when i met them they were nice enough to give me the entire run (search 'em out--they are really lots of fun!!) and also kind enough to do an awesome pin-up for us in our first perhapanauts trade, first blood!
since then, we've stayed in touch and rich has been nice enough to keep me in the loop with all his artistic ventures, most recently with some really cool pulp illustrations, which you too can check out at:

but here's a couple to whet your appetite

the other rich, rich faber, i've know now for about 12 years. while an inker in this crazy comics biz (rich claims he's quit the crazy comics biz forever and i can't blame him!), we were teamed up on a marvel one-shot called "bug!". writers and inkers don't usually have much to talk with each other about, don't really even have any need to contact one another, but rich and i did and we did and we've been good friends ever since. also, we share a birthday--a date i didn't really want made public, but if you check a few posts back, there's rich just blabbin' it out to everyone...* anyway, rich is now an artist, a teacher, and a dad--not necessarily in that order--and you can see his stuff at:

but again, here's a sample...

so those are our other pals rich.

that's all i really have to say for now.
it's been raining here a lot this week and it's time for me to go. but first here are a few

random pictures of the week

that said,

"five for friday"

1. there are fourteen punctuation marks in english grammar. can you name ten?

2. name the six pythons.

3. what is the only fruit or vegatable never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh?

4. what do the j. and the two r.'s stand for in tolkien's name?

Man, you got me stumped on all of those questions this week!

Thanks for the hi/spotlight :-)

It's so funny for me. I've always been a big fan of Todd's writing, and then to meet him and become friends with him, it's just cool. I mean, I was reading Todd's stuff when I was in my late teens early twenties. Then some 10 years later to meet him and become friends, well, it's just super cool.

Thanks again Todd!

Thanks for pointing these guys out. I've been to Rich Faber's page out of curiosity from seeing him post here, and I like his stuff. Also don't blame him for leaving the comic biz. I also liked Rich Woodall's stuff, I'll check his stuff out over the weekend if I get a chance. If they get your stamp of approval then I'm sure it's stuff I'll like!

As for the 5-Fer-no frikkin clue on any of them. I should know the Tolkien one but for the life of me I can't remember, some fantasy lover I am how sad is that?! hahaha

Scott Weinstein said...

Wow, that's an embarrassment of Riches. Ha ha ha.
(Wipes tear from eye)

But, seriously folks. I love both the art from both Riches. I was searching online for any interior pages for Johnny Raygun. It looks really interesting. Rich, do you have any links.

Um, is it sad I was thinking of type of snakes for number 2 as opposed to the PYTHONS? Wow I feel like a total putz!!!! That's the kind of work week I had this week!!! I was actually thinking and I quote the literal thought process here: 'Um, Ball, Burmese.......uhhhhhhhhhh, dammit!!'

Maybe Rich, Rich and I should get together and form a band or something... Thanks for posting their samples!

As for the S's for the feet question, here were my answers (before peeking at some of the other good answers by others)

Smell YOU later
-Rich (the other one)

Matt Wieringo said...

Count me in as a fan of both Riches. Those backgrounds are wicked cool, RW. And RF, I already told you how much I love your inks.

I can only guess at the fruit question. Pomegranate?

Rich Faber said...

I'm coming in really late on this, after a busy week of birthdays, workdays, and my son's sick days, but thanks for the nod, Todd! And to all of the other cool folks who chimed in, thanks for the nice words!

One point of clarification: Having spent the last 5 years inking (and sometimes coloring) Buzzboy, as well as writing, inking and coloring my own (and John Gallagher's) Roboy Red, I can't really say I quit comics, although that was my intention 5 years ago. The reality is, I was sucked back in by fun kids' comics, and have never looked back at my DC and Marvel freelancing days.

However, I'm ALWAYS open to new work... ;-)

Thanks again for including me in such esteemed company, Todd!


PS: to Rich Case: Maybe not a band, but I'd be open for some artistic collaboration! =)
