i don't know that i really have to say this, but just in case you don't know...
craig and i will be attending the new york comic con this weekend, friday, february 6th-sunday, february 8th!!
we'll have all kinds of cool perhapanauts shwag as well as all the issues so that, if you don't have them all, you can fill out your crazy collection here!
also on hand you can meet our own brian mulcahy, bill nolan, scott weinstein, leanne hannah, rich woodall, and many, many more!
(hey, rico~! you're gonna be there too, right?)
so come on down and hang with us for a while! we'd love to see ya!!


here's something i should tell you...!

i talk here from time to time about how craig and i are so very fortunate to be getting some steady work from marvel these days and how craig recently tore it up on the terry moore written "spider-man loves mary jane" and is now working on some awesome captain america stories for a title called "marvel adventures superheroes"!! i've seen craig's kick-ass cap stuff and i really can't wait for you to see it too! that boy's goooood!!
the marvel adventures superheroes book is a rotating title, meaning that each month it features one of four rotating marvel superheroes--captain america is one, and i think thor and doctor strange are two more...
the forth in the mix is the under appreciated (and, thankfully, classic) ANT-MAN!!
i put him in capital letters 'cause i'll be writing that one!
i say 'thankfully classic' 'cause it's the original ant-man--hank pym!

in actuality, i didn't write the first issue. that one was written by the very talented fred van lente and is on sale NOW and looks like this... if you wanna get in on the ground floor and collect 'em all, go pick up this first thrilling chapter!
(i'll be writing the rest...)


so, just before christmas i got this cool pad of watercolor paper cut to postcard size. just the right size to just play around on.
here are a couple of the 'haps that i've messed around with so far...

and here's the
"twofer tuesday!"

1. what asian country was previously known as siam?

2. what is the name for the small (mythical?) leprechaun-like inhabitants of the hawaiian islands?

3. who sang backing vocals on dire straits' "money for nothing?"

4. who sang backing vocals on rockwell's "somebody's watching me?"

5. who sang backing vocals on r.e.m.'s "shiny happy people?"

that's all for me!
off to play rehearsal!
smell ya later!

One of these days we might make the NYCC...

I'll have to keep an eye out for Ant-Man, 'specially if you'll be penning an issue.

Nice watercolor work, Todd. Makes me wanna bust out my old (and probably dried out) gouache.

Looking forward to NYC. Just 3 days from today.

I've only got one of the Tuesday Testers.

1. Thailand.

P.S. Really like those little water colors. Any room on your NYC sketch list.

man, I'm so jealous of you two guys, you get to do 'Haps for the love of it and you get to play with Spidey, Cap and now Ant-man!!!

remember about 4 years ago when Marvel tried to relaunch the Epic line and was taking pitches from anyone? well I sent them a pitch for an Ant-man relaunch at that time, I got one of my most prized possesions, a real, honest to goodness Marvel rejection letter!!!

1. I don't know but everyone says "Thailand" so I'll go with that.

2. Higgins.

3. Sting.

4. Michael Jackson.

5. The Silver Surfer and Rom. Oh, wait. That was "Shiny UNhappy People."
