I Love Wednesdays!

It was another great day at the comics store! The final issue of The Blackest Night was released and it was surpassed and exceeded this Aqua-Fan's expectations! There was so much going on, I hardly know where to begin...
Ok, the story! Geoff Johns wrote a story that at times, had me gasping for breath, and at other times had me screaming in agony! And the art! I can't believe the double-page spreads that Ivan Reis drew! Each one was a masterpiece in visual storytelling! And Ivan started and finished all eight issues, unlike the last few recent DC events! (Infinite Crisis, Final Crisis, I'm looking at you!) Even the inkers, colorists, and letterers gave this book more than most expected! And even though I knew this ending would be a set up for The Brightest Day, to do it with so many twists and turns along the way proves that Geoff Johns truly deserves his recent promotion at DC Entertainment!! It's a just one hell of a serving of awesome, covered in awesome sauce, with awesome for dessert!! It's really that good!And then there was this DC Dynamics Aquaman statue! It's almost a foot tall and absolutely gorgeous! The other statues in the line feature the classic versions of the characters, and this Aquaman is no exception. Black shorts, green, tights, yellow belt... but this one has the new belt insignia!
Oh boy, do I need space for displays...

This great new hoodie came in yesterday! Because today was casual Friday, I was able to wear it to work! I was pleasantly surprised by how many people recognized who the hoodie was styled after! And a co-worker also had a treat for us. He was given an Official Vancouver 2010 Olympic Relay Torch from a member of VANOC! We were able to strike a pose and have a picture or two taken for posterity. Very cool!

Arion the Immortal


Jesse Quick or Liberty Belle?

I think I prefer the Liberty Belle costume over the Jesse Quick one... Which is your favorite?



Aquaman rendered by fan favorite Alan Davis!



A dramatic pose if ever there was one... Art by Leonard Kirk and Andy Clarke!



Art by Ken Hooper!



Here's Aquaman by Leonard Kirk and Andy Clarke. I've always loved this piece of art, even though you can't see Aquaman's face or belt. It was an interesting choice for a full page spread and I got the brainstorm for the perfect wallpaper for it!

Legions of Super-Heroes!

I've been working on a few different wallpapers and this is the latest batch that are ready for posting! And it's a Legion of Super-Heroes extravaganza! Starting out with two scenes from the Great Darkness Saga drawn by master artist Keith Giffen! These are from first set of DC trading cards.

And the Legionnaires are represented by their former artist Chris Sprouse! From the Cosmic Teams trading card set. And that's it for the Legion... for now anyway.

Something I've been working on for a while, but it still doesn't feel finished to me.
