It's funny that the theme this week would be the new DC reboots, after I just spent a weekend sitting next to the DC booth and their looping guitar riff advertising such. But Red Hood and the Outlaws! I'm pretty sure if I talk about all these characters and how I feel about them, I'll go on forever. But this is a title I'm looking forward to this month!
Finally a return to Spitballin'. Everyone was crazy busy prepping for FanExpo in Toronto and we had to take a bit of time off.
Nonetheless we are back and starting off we have a collection of some DCnU characters. David decided on each of our picks and I got the new superman. I'm not too sure what is up with this costume as I haven't had too much time to check the solicits for these issues but I do know that Grant Morrison is writing action comics so it is sure to be mind-bending.

It's the dreaded weeks heading up to Toronto's Fan Expo, which is an enormous 75 000 fan-strong nerd fest in the heart of downtown this place. A bunch of us are going nuts trying to get stuff done for it, so updates may be sporadic, but Ken and Neil have promised to pick up the slack and do that thing they do.
In the meantime, here's an unbelievably fantastic Deadpool by local hero Martin MacIntosh. Martin's a 2011 grad of the MTM Animation School illustration for sequential arts program, and his work is so manic and energetic it blows me away every time. I'm pretty much his biggest fan, and I picked Deadpool for this week partly with him in mind. Since it looks like I may not get to do one myself, this is an awesome and superior substitute. Check out Martin's sketch blog, too! It's pretty math.

I really loved the movie Loki. Though my friend Jeff made me realize that their writing for him was like two different characters. Either he was an absolute prick trying to kill and humiliate his brother, or this sympathetic outcast, living in his brother's shadow and trying to make his dad proud. Nevertheless, as confusing as they are, I liked both sides. And tried to get them in this.

It's Loki week and I knew from the get-go that I was going to draw the female version from the Bendis run on the New Avengers. Truthfully, I have no idea why he's a she since I'm not very good at keeping up with current continuity in any comics.
I've been fiddling around with this on and off throughout the week; some things I like and some things I really don't (that's par for the course). Now that this is out of my system I can start concentrating on work for FanExpo at the end of the month.
Hope ya dig.

Ok, so basically I hate zombies, so i needed some encouragement. Naturally i choose the one in my mind would be able to combat them successfully. The Spirit of vengeance, The Ghost Rider. When I got on with this, I bloody well loved it! Finally wanted to see Hulk get his ass kicked!
The Doctor is in... trouble! Narf.
The Fantastic Four and zombies, can't get more fun than that.
Actually, it's pretty terrifying. Forget that it's the Fantastic Four and just think of any zombie that suddenly had any one of these powers.. A flying zombie? On fire? One that could stretch it's rotten body to any size? A ghost like zombie that can create invisible traps for you? Bad, just, just, all bad man. I bet poor Victor is thinking the old Fantastic Four were kinda okay right about now.
