Machine Man 2020. Written by Tom DeFalco, with Layouts by Herb Trimpe, and inks by Barry Windsor-Smith. Barry did the cover artwork as well.
Barry Windsor-Smith is always worth a reblog. I remember the 4-issue miniseries so well, as well - it was at this time, I think, that people were starting to realise what you could do with covers, and Marvel led the way with sequentials like this.
Alias #21-26 by Brian Michael Bendis & David Mack
I’m selling some of my issues of Alias over on eBay, by the way. I’ve got them all in trade, otherwise there’s no way I’d part with them. PERFECT comics.
The inhabitants of Carpenter Cove discover their strange town is actually a construct in the mind of a killer. Shane, the sheriff, wants to get back to his real life but one dark connection between him and the killer is going to make him rethink everything.
Ryan and I created this project a year ago, so it’s great to finally see this released. Also contributing to the project are Chris Peterson and Marissa Louise. Because of all of the other projects I’m currently working on, we brought them on board to lessen my workload and I couldn’t be happier with what they’ve contributed. I illustrate the sections in Max’s head featuring Shane, while Chris and Marissa do all the scenes featuring Max in the real world.
It’s available for preorder on Comixology now.
Here’s some preview art for the first issue of Headspace!
That third page splash is one of my favourite pages Eric drew for the book.
This is pretty nifty. Ryan is a friend of the show, so really glad to see new, ambitious work from him.
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.
