Inker extraordinaire Shawn Van Briesen has posted a cool blast from my past. It’s the complete 8 page flashback sequence from SUPREME #49 that he inked over my pencils. What’s especially cool is that he reproduces my pencils alongside his inks to compare. We were going for a 70′s look in this particular bit and I think we hit it pretty good! Script by Alan Moore and lettering by Todd Klein.1 comment
This pin-up from SUPREME #50 is of The Pearl Paragon paying a visit to Professor Night’s Halls Of Night. I don’t think it made it into the Checker collections. My art from an idea by Alan Moore. Brett Evans provided the color.
I’d like to run some of the parody comics Alan and I did that were in the back of Supreme 52A and 52B. But I don’t have copies. Anyone out there who could provide me with scans?3 comments
Here’s the splash page to the GREYSHIRT tale in Tomorrow Stories #5. Script by Alan Moore, pencils and inks by me and lettering (on the board) by Todd Klein. The musical notes in the gutters were pasted up by Todd and are in perfect condition as is the whole piece. I normally get $300 for a GREYSHIRT splash like this but for Retro Week I’m willing to take $275. E-mail me if you are interested.No comments
This is the last splash page I have from the Tomorrow Stories GREYSHIRT stuff. This is from the crossover with COBWEB and appeared in issue #12. Script by Alan Moore, pencils by me, inks by Hilary Barta and lettering (on the board) by Todd Klein. I’d normally ask $300 for a splash but in honor of Retro Week here on the blog I’m offering this piece, in perfect condition, for $275. If you’d like it just send me an e-mail.No comments
This page of original art is from the first appearance of “Retro Supreme” in Supreme #42 and shows how young Ethan and Radar got their powers. Script by Alan Moore, pencils and inks by me and lettering (on the board) by Todd Klein. It’s in perfect condition. I’d usually ask $225 for something this but during Retro Week I’m selling it for $200. If you are interested, send me an e-mail.2 comments
I’m going to put up a bunch of original art pages for sale this week, with the theme being “retro”. Being known as the “retro artist” can be a bit of a pain sometimes because I work in lots of other styles and don’t like being pigeonholed. But at the same time, I love doing it and have been fortunate enough to have collaborated on quite a few faux-silver age stories with Alan Moore. Here’s the first page I’m offering:
This is one of the last pages I have from 1963: MYSTERY INCORPORATED. It’s story page 13 with script by Alan Moore, pencils by me, inks by Dave Gibbons and lettering (on the board) by Don Simpson. It’s in perfect condition and I’d normally ask $275 for it. But for Retro In Regalia week its only $250 plus shipping and insurance. Shoot me an e-mail if you’d like to make it yours.No comments
Since I’ve been posting some of the ghost panels I’ve done for other artists, it’s only fair to show some of the ghost help I’ve gotten in my own stories. Here’s the big reveal panel from “LOVE DOESN’T LAST FOREVER”, in which we see that Bruno is suffering from some alien sexually transmitted disease. Who better to pull that off than Steve Bissette?
Steve and I ghosted lots of stuff for each other over the years, but this has got to be my favorite bit by him. I did the Bruno character and Steve collaged the rest. It should be mentioned that my editor, Archie Goodwin, had warned me not to show Bruno’s penis in this shot, but Bissette couldn’t resist slapping that orchid in there. Archie, to his everlasting credit, laughed out loud when he saw it and let it pass for publication.
Alan Moore fans (and who isn’t?) be aware that he authored this little seen 8 page story which is available only in the SHINY BEASTS trade paperback from King Hell.
