The First Avenger

Captain America Poster Comps. 2010. Gouache on bristol board. 11 × 17.″

Captain America opens today and I highly recommend it. Aside from being entertaining throughout, it was absolutely beautiful to look at, from the period designs to the cinematography. Be sure to stay for the Avengers teaser after the credits! Have a great weekend!

Daredevil Day!

Daredevil #1, Page 1, Panel 2 detail. 2011. Ink on Marvel board, 11 × 17.25″.

Today is the day, folks! If you like blind lawyers who dress up in red tights and horns and jump around rooftops by night, then this is the book for you. Seriously. If that's the sort of thing you like, then we're pretty much the only people who are selling right now.

This has been a labor of love for all involved, and it's the reason I haven't been blogging as of late. I'm working with some of my absolute favorite creators, at least one of whom gave me a Y chromosome (the panels featured above and below were inked by my Dad).

Furthermore, I've just entered my 10th year of working for Marvel, but this is my first attempt at an ongoing title. This book means a lot to me. I hope it will mean just as much to you, and hopefully we can ride this wave together for some time. By the way, I don't surf.

And speaking of working for Marvel, the job certainly has its perks, as I will be attending an advanced screening of Captain America today. I can only hope that Chris Evans says my name during the movie, but stays away from my girlfriend.

And speaking of my girlfriend, she said that this is the part of the blog post where I go on and on thanking everyone who helped me through the birthing process. I'll save the speech for now, as I am still in the midst of labor. Peace!

Amazing Spider-Man #665

Amazing Spider-Man #665. 2011. Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Hi folks! I'm still not back to regular blogging, but I wanted to mention that this issue is out and it's a great read by Dan Slott and Ryan Stegman. Aside from that, I'm hard at work on issue 3 of the Daredevil relaunch, the first of which hits stands next week. Have a great weekend!
