Don't take more than a few minutes they don't have to be great works just ones that have touched you. then tag 10 of your friends, including me so I can see your list. no particular order. 1. Bernie Wrightson: A look back. I spent hour after hour reading this and looking over the art work. a real inspiration for me. 2. Violent Cases by Neil Gaiman What a wonderful graphic novel from start to finish. I just cant get it ut of my head and its been 20 years 3. Mage : the hero discovered. This is the indy book that started it all for me. I read books from the big 2 but this, TMNT, and Gizmo were my first indy books. 4. The Thief of Always by Clive Barker This story always haunts me. 5. Good Omens by terry Pratchett and Neil gaiman. C'mon its good Omens. I remember filming a scene in high school for Michael J Robinson in the grave yard ...

What do you think is THE scariest comic ever? I say "Jenifer" by Bruce Jones & Bernie Wrightson. Only comic that ever actually disturbed me.
  Author Returns To IDW To Unite A Monster And A Madman  San Diego, CA (December 12, 2013) – Visionary author and celebrated comic creator Steve Niles is returning to IDW in 2014 and bringing the most nefarious fiends along with him. Debuting in March, Niles weaves together a grave team-up between Frankenstein’s monster and Jack the Ripper in the terrifying new series, Monster & Madman.   A lost soul, Frankenstein’s monster seeks refuge from his waking life but finds no comfort in the bitter harshness of his surroundings. He sets out to free himself from his lonely isolation and during this journey he finds himself at the doorstop of a creature more sinister than he could have imagined, the madman, Jack The Ripper.   “Niles reminds me of Ozzy Osbourne,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief,  “In the same way that Ozzy was always finding great new guitarists to bring his macabre visions to life, so too is Niles always finding amazingly talented and ...

Lilith typically symbolizes rebellion, rage and an untamed sexual nature. She was mainly a malevolent female night demon, mainly in Ancient Jewish tradition, but also in ancient Mesopotamia and ancient Greece. Also in medieval ages her stories were given new interpretations, in relation with magic, in literature and in art. The first malevolent demons, either male or female with related name were found in ancient Mesopotalia, about 4000 BC, male Lilu and female Lilitu, both storm demons bringing diseases, od invading in women’s or men’s sleep respectively. The name Lilith was Jewish and is traced from 700 BC. Lady Lilith by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1863) In some medieval stories Lilith was referred as the first Adam’s wife who created together with Adam. They have conflicts about sex domination issues, so Lilith, as an independent character left Adam alone. But God, supporting Adam, threatened her, so she accepted the curse to kill infants in order to keep her independence. So she invaded houses with ...

Bernie Wrightson is possibly my favorite artist of all time. So cool
thanks for letting me join this exclusive group! i am a big fan of corbens works since i got DEN in my hands as a little comic fan. since then i tried to track down as much of his works as possible. it´s hard to find all because i can´t find a list of all his works. there is a lot he has done for CREEPY, but i only have a few. the POE-works for example. DEN is the ultimate fantasy saga. it has everything that gets my blood pumping: the universe, the landscape, the old mysteries, machine guns, aeroplanes & sword fights, glorious violence, the creatures and of cause the sex. sometimes i wish there was more of it to discover. a movie (done right) would be great, but i guess it will only end up as another RIDDICK. by the way: dont you think that corben and bernie wrightson have a lot in common? i´am very exited to look around this group and maybe find some treasures. by the way: i am from germany - any german comic fans around? thanks again and have a good time discovering the corben universe!

Lance's upcoming biography ,"Not Bad for a Human", will be published by my bud Steve Niles' Bloody Pulp Books. How cool is that?! Lance has been a part of the Hollywood and theater firmament for decades: What a career! Terminator, Aliens, Pumpkinhead, Millenium, Dead Man, to name but a few. It's written by Joseph Maddrey with lots of excerpts of Lance speaking. To paraphrase Steve: "Really cool stuff. No salacious stuff, just great stories about working in Hollywood. Very gritty and real." The book will be also be illustrated by fellow Lance Fans, Tim Bradstreet, Tom Mandrake, bro Bernie Wrightson, as well as by yrs trly. Speaking of which,i did a B&W portrait study of Lance for a promo tee-shirt ( what a truly great face to try and capture on canvas or paper) I'll be doing a new Image or three for the bio as well. It's such a cool project. And the title is perfection. I spoke with Lance last week. What a great guy. Incredibly warm and a true artist--really committed to his passion for acting. Fascin ...

The kind of things that happen at Comic Cons - middle of a portfolio review with my pal, and editor at IDW, Denton Tipton, and Gene Simmons sees my art from afar, walks over and starts commenting on how he sees in my work - a little Bernie Wrightson, a little Jack Kirby, a little Wally Wood. He loved it. Then he walked off to sign autographs to an enormous line. Gene Simmons. Surreal.
Bernie Wrightson! I just met him for the first time at Heroes Con and blubbered like a baby. Dream come true!
who is the secret final guest in the works??? Please be Mark Millar or Bernie Wrightson!!
OK, So, I have been putting soem thougth into my next tat. I do NOT want to be like EVERYONE and get a LOT of BAD ink on my body. While I was getting my little X-men piece on my arm (awesome b-day present last year) one of the shops I was shopping around at had an artist (pen and oencil artist not an ink man) who has a dream of combining two very very big things that are great into one AMAZING piece. He had just never found anyone geeky/brave enough for it. He wanted to do a scene from the iconic 80's run in Uncanny X-men Days of Future Past. In the art style of Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein graphic novel. You can look up on google images if you are THAT curious, but I will be posting two seperate pics to give an idea and I would like to hear some thoughts from my ink freaks. Or anyone. Peace and Love
Had a great time at the Big Wow! ComicFest today. Lots of families and kids were there, and it was one of the most kid-friendly conventions I've ever been to.
