the Thrilling Adventure Hour: THE POSTER!

just in time for christmas!

a while back i discovered the amazing podcast THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR, a marvellous oddity wherein a bunch of very funny and talented people in los angeles get dressed up and do an old timey radio style stage show. i was hooked immediately.

around that time i tweeted something along the lines of: "i wish there were a thrilling adventure hour comic book so i could, you know, draw it." to my delight less than ten minutes later the creaters of the show, mr. ben acker and mr. ben blacker, contacted me and we started talking about fun things we could do. many months (9?!) later the poster above was born.

big special thanks to the lovely and talented jordie bellaire for the graphic design. please check out my previous post for information about the BIG project we've got brewing.

and also thanks to acker & blacker for being good sports and providing cartoonists with something to listen to at 4 in the morning.

the thrilling adventure hour is available for free on itunes or over at the nerdist network.


HULK season 1...

well, we're official...
this isn't, by the way, an official image commissioned by marvel, but a little promo jordie bellaire and i whipped up to get ourselves (and everybody else) excited.

i'll post more as i can, when i can.

my new art rep: cadence comic art...

i actually signed up with the good people over at CADENCE COMIC ART a couple of months ago, but it occurred to me i'd never made the official announcement here.


please head on over to CADENCE, my new exclusive original comic art dealer, to find all of my pages that are currently for sale. and please stick around to see some of the other things paolo has up for sale. paolo will thank you and i will thank you.

sculpting day two...

more sculpting. very happy with how these are turning out. here's the progress.

Monday, November 14, 2011


i had a little bit of time before my next project so i decided to do something i've been threatening to do forever: sculpt myself some reference.

with luck i'll have time to knock out a few more busts before i get going. i'm not a shade on paolo rivera, but i'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out.

here are some progress shots.

all made with sculpey, an x-acto knife, and an ikea dish rack.

VENOM 8 preview and NYCC...

first the arts...

i'm going to be at NYCC this year. as usual though i'll be there just walkin' the earff. which means no table and no signing schedule per se.


i do have a tonne of VENOM art for sale. prices range from $250-$400/page. if you're interested in purchasing through the mail (nothing at the show), please email me with the subject line "VENOM ART INQUIRY" and let me know what issue and page you'd be interested in and i'll get you the appropriate info.

VENOM #5, warts and all....

i've been pouring over walt simonson's thor artist's edition the last few days and thinking how much i LOVE seeing original art, warts and all. i love figuring out how artists make their marks to create the page.

with that in mind, here are three pages of my most recently published issue of VENOM. i don't have the time or energy right now to do a full-on "how a bill becomes a law" process post, but please free to glean any of my secret craft... such as it is.

ironically my two favourite (and to my mind most successful) pages are the LAST two. the book's still on shelves so i have no interest in spoiling its emotional punch. remind me to post them when the trade comes out.
