Flash! Oh-oh…Savior of the Universe.

I've been inspired and influenced by the work of Alex Raymond and later Al Williamson on the comic strip Flash Gordon. Fantastic!

He kinda looks like Snake-Eyes from G.I. Joe but he's actually Deadpool, assassin from the world of the X-Men

I was expecting some carnage yesterday.

I missed Theodore in the 'green' phase, so I snuck him into Alvin's picture.

Grandma, what big teeth you have…

What a strange story. 'Nuff said.

His Name is Gossamer

In case you were wondering (like I was). Anyway, I really liked the way his arms would disappear when they weren't outstretched. They just blend into his body. Genius!

He's Flexible.

I don't know. Something funny to me about Plastic Man carrying cash.

Yia Yia's Jell-O

I have been having cravings for Jell-O lately. My grandmother used to make me red Jell-O all the time— from ages 0-25. I haven't had any in a long while.

I had a lot of fun drawing this one. I couldn't remember if Hellboy had "human" ears or if he had any fangs so I asked LaVonne to look it up and give me a hint. I had to render him in the likeness of the Mike Mignola style though I did put in some of my own styling.

It was recently brought to my attention that it wasn't clear that the drawings on this blog are rendered from memory (I only used a reference for a few of them). Now that I've gotten through almost a third of the project, I've started to notice (looking back) that my rendering of characters is based upon the style of the original and not my own interpretation.

La, la, la-la-la-la…La, la, la-la

My sister used to hog the t.v. for Saturday morning cartoons (even though she denies it!) and she'd subject me to the Smurfs. Here's Papa Smurf.

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

The Shadow (a.k.a. Lamont Cranston). My Dad got me into the old radio serials. I love the production quality and drama of them. Really painted a mental picture.  The Alec Baldwin movie is really corny—great soundtrack though.

I am…

Iron Man. Haven't seen the new movie yet, but would like to this weekend.

Fear of the Red Skull

I had this Captain America mini-comic as a little kid and the Rd Skull was in it—totally scarred now.

Everybody Loves Elmo

When I thought about red characters, he was the fist one that popped into my head. I used to think he was super annoying until I saw how much my nephew loved him.

Hot Blooded

This is Magma Man from the Saga of Crystar: The Crystal Warriors. He was the only action figure I had from the short lived series.

The Fury of Mr. Strong

Remember these characters? I think I had a toy of him from an Arby's kids meal.

I might be wrong.

The crying Minotaur from Radiohead's 2001 release Amnesiac.

Not the best—but it counts right? He is red. Officially the worst drawing that I've done for this blog—officially. What do you expect? Lost was on and so was that Ancient Aliens show. Too much TV and not enough drawing. I'll put the extra effort in tomorrow—officially.

The Death of Superman

I was 13 years old when DC decided to kill-off the Man of Steel. I remember the day that issue #75 hit the comic shop shelves. I was home sick from school—an awful cold. My Father came home from work and had the newspaper with him. The entertainment section had a cover page write-up, headline read: "Edina Man Kills Superman". They advetised that the man responsible—Dan Jurgens—would be at the College of Comic Book Knowledge in South Minneapolis signing books. I begged my Dad to take me and being that it was a once in a lifetime experience, he agreed. Needless to say, it wasn't the best idea to go. There was a long line to get in and it happened to rain while we waited. No umbrella. Cold and nursing a cold. I did however get a the issue signed. The book itself isn't worth anything today, but the opportunity to participate in comic book history is quite valuable.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

Every afternoon at 3pm from age 3-5 I watched The Woody Woodpecker Show—a classic.

Happy Free Comic Book Day!

That's right. There's one day out of the year where comic book shops give out special "free" comics. Its kinda like Christmas. So here's the first post of the new quarter—the Flash.
