Art by Doug Braithwaite

Doug Braithwaite drew six issues of The Punisher in 1992. It was a story called 'Eurohit', where he followed the Kingpin to Europe and shot a bunch of bad guys during his pursuit. I loved Doug's pencils because they were vibrant and drawn tight! These 3 pages are from issue 70 of The Punisher.

Photos On The Ledge

I find all sorts of images as I search through magazines. As I do, I see the ways photographers communicate to the reader. I have noticed that some photographers put their subjects on top of a building near the ledge, and some have them walking ON the ledge. Why? It's to convey danger or recklessness. If it's woman on the ledge, it could be to show passion or fearlessness. I think in the case of James McAvoy, shown in the center, It may be just a bad decision. He looks a little scared!

John Severin Covers

All of the comic book websites are paying tribute to the wonderful John Severin. He passed away earlier this week. I am also a great fan of his work but I never met him in person. I did get to look at his art close up when I worked for Marvel. I made some copies of the work he did for 'The 'Nam' He was a great illustrator who will be missed.

I sold my comics

I am feeling sad because I sold a bunch of comic books. I know that they will go to good homes but I just feel the loss. I am sure that I will be able to move on!

Groo Covers

I am selling a long box full of old comics. I discovered my run of Groo comics from the early 80s! They were published by Pacific Comics and I was lucky enough to live in New York where I could get independent books.
