Black Panther

Have you seen the Black Panther movie? Because I have, and I liked it a whole awful lot. But don't worry, this isn't a post to talk about the movie, it's for the character and his comics. So no worries, there won't be any spoilers here. But, if you're reading this and you haven't seen… Continue reading Black Panther

Comic Book Romance

As today is Valentine's Day, and I'm a sucker for such things, I've decided to dive into the romantic side of comics. This is not going to be an academic look into love, rather, an examinations of some of the comic book relationships that really stick out to me. No, not every couple will be… Continue reading Comic Book Romance

Friday Review: Incidents in the Night

Incidents in the Night is a rather bizarre comic by French cartoonist David B. Don't take that as a bad thing though, because I like my comics strange. It's a sort of hard book to talk about because I think any conversation benefits from the other party having read the story in this particular case. However,… Continue reading Friday Review: Incidents in the Night

Comics in the Age of Social Media

Do you know what's hard? Making comics. Do you know what's even harder than that? Understanding, and thus, correctly using social media for a business. Well, for me it is anyway. I can make comic after comic and slowly get better. But throw me into the world of Twitter and algorithms, and I'm lost. I… Continue reading Comics in the Age of Social Media

Let me start by mentioning that, yes, this is an all ages read. Some people may consider it a comic… Continue reading Friday Review: Lowriders in Space

Digital Drawing

Time rolls on and the seeds I planted two weeks ago have finally grown. Last week I took a singular look at traditional drawing, so this week, I dive into the world of digital drawing. I don't really know how long people have been drawing on computers, but it's been around for a while. And… Continue reading Digital Drawing

Friday Review: Macanudo

You'll be forgiven if you've never heard of this comic. Macanudo is actually a daily comic strip from Argentina by Liniers (I know I must seem like the biggest hipster right now) that I just happened to stumble upon while working the other day. So, technically, this is the second volume of collected strips. However,… Continue reading Friday Review: Macanudo

Traditional Drawing

Last week for my blog, I took a look at both traditional and digital drawings. This proved to be a little too big for one entry, so I decided that I would split it up and talk about each method separately so I could get a more complete catalog of thoughts about each process. This… Continue reading Traditional Drawing

Friday Review: Andre the Giant Closer to Heaven

I love professional wrestling, don't try to change me. I have fond memories of watching wrestling, going back to when I was a kid, some of my first memories in fact. And of course, watching those old VHS tapes, one of the men that sticks out the most is Andre the Giant, the Eight Wonder… Continue reading Friday Review: Andre the Giant Closer to Heaven
