ANTONY ON DECOMPRESSED / THE FUSE #2 VARIANT COVER BY RILEY ROSSMO
Kieron and Antony are old friends, so it was a pretty relaxed conversation, and they got into quite a bit of detail. So if the idea of them talking comics craft interests you, go here to Kieron’s site (which also contains images of relevant pages, if you didn’t buy the issue, tut tut) or check out DECOMPRESSED on iTunes, and subscribe if you like.
Riley loved issue #1 so much he just straight-out asked if he could do a variant for us, and how can you turn something like that down? You can’t, is the answer. So we didn’t.
Please note: this is a fully orderable variant, not some artificially rare 1-in-50 ‘chase’ bollocks. If you want it, you can order it like any other issue, no problem. Just give your retailer Diamond code JAN148144. But be quick, because final orders for issue #2 are due on Monday.

This comic is gorgeous.
I haven’t seen a whole bunch of office/business wear for stealth cosplay week, so here are my takes on Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers and Captain America. I have the feeling these are going to become standard parts of my work wardrobe. I think it would work equally well with the red boots I made for my Captain Marvel cosplay (a bit more comfortable too. I love these heels, but after a whole day wearing them, ow!)
This is pretty cool. I love how you could miss the Captain America cosplay if you aren’t paying attention.
