Pics from the Love is Love event.  i was so happy to meet George Perez. He said "put your stuff down and let's take a proper picture" then he hugged me. Such a really nice guy. Then I got King to sign some Batman comics. It was a great event last night plus the money went to a good cause. Then there was Gail Simone and a bunch of others. Best bit for me though was when Scott Snyder remembered my name from when I got autographs earlier that day. He talked at our table and then had a conversation with Jim Zub between me about his future comic series. Then Jim Zub drew Aku for me. Really a great night.

SPAWN #1 25TH ANNIVERSARY DIRECTOR'S CUT FOIL ENCORE EDITION (28 Jun 2017)

Spawn Director's Cut Rushed Back To Print For Foil Encore Edition
May 27, 2017

Image Comics is pleased to announce that the special SPAWN #1: DIRECTOR’S CUT EDITION by comics legend and Image Comics President, Todd McFarlane, is being fast-tracked for a special reprint.

The cover C by McFarlane will receive a foil treatment and will be rushed back to print for SPAWN #1 25TH ANNIVERSARY DIRECTOR’S CUT FOIL ENCORE EDITION in order to keep up with overwhelming customer demand.

The DIRECTOR’S CUT includes the original artboards of SPAWN #1, commentary from McFarlane himself on each page, and bonus, never-before-seen art.

The reprint, SPAWN #1 25TH ANNIVERSARY DIRECTOR’S CUT FOIL ENCORE EDITION (APR178627), will be available in comic stores on Wednesday, June 28th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 29th.

In the summer of 1992, famed comic book artist Todd McFarlane shook up the industry when he unleashed his very own comic creation, SPAWN to the world. Published by the newly formed Image Comics, the debut issue of SPAWN would also be the very first publication for the company co-founded by McFarlane himself. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of SPAWN—which sold 1.7 million copies in its debut year and is currently on issue #275, keeping pace to become the longest running independent comic ever when it reaches issue #301.

The inaugural issue of SPAWN began the saga of Al Simmons who was once the U.S. government’s greatest soldier and most effective assassin. Mercilessly executed by his own men, Simmons was resurrected from the ashes of his own grave in a flawed agreement with the powers of darkness, he was reborn as a creature from the depths of Hell. Now Al Simmons is locked on Earth fighting the evil that is locked with him. Unable to save the love of his life, Wanda, he makes it his mission to save her daughter, Cyan.

The story behind the Rich Buckler/George Perez 2014 Team-Up

ALBUQUERQUE COMIC CON 2014 (11-12 Jan 2014)
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Sad day yesterday (20-May-2017). We lost a legendary comic artist. When I had an opportunity to meet Rich Buckler for the first time at the 2014 ACC, I knew I had to get a commission from him. So I contacted him prior to the show, and arranged 2 commissions. One was the penciled Joker which I have already posted in my Joker gallery, and the second was this one.

The concept for this commission was that, George Perez (one of my all-time favorite artists) was going to be in attendance at the 2014 ACC also. I knew that George was mentored by Rich when George first entered the business. So, I need a jam that would pull the artists together. Nothing says partnership more than Superman and Batman...The World's Finest. I explained to Rich in detail what I wanted, and how I wanted the characters posed. When I arrived to the show, Rich had his Batman competed. Throughout the show, when I was walking by, he would keep asking me to see it, and he kept touching it up. When I picked it from Rich, it was n Friday night. Friday night was vendor night, and most artists were not going to be in attendance until Saturday and Sunday. Rich got into the show Friday night, with just a couple of hours left. I told him who I was, so I could pick up my commissions. He had to run to the restroom, so he asked me if I would watch his table for a few minutes. Upon his return, I sat with him for about an hour, and we talked. He signed other items I had brought with me. He was just absolutely a nice guy!

Fast forward to next day, Saturday. I needed to get George Perez to do Superman, knowing that he usually only does the quick head sketches (which I will posting many many of in the upcoming months). When I reached my turn in line for George, I showed George what I wanted and explained to George why I wanted it. He was hesitant at first, but agreed for a reasonable fee above his normal fee. The reason George agreed to do it, was because Rich had outlined in pencil the Superman pose. George just had to fill in the blank, so to speak. I was in heaven after I obtained Superman from George!

Towards the end of the show on Saturday, I was at getting another sketch from George (actually the last sketch of the day since the show was closing), and who should be waking by...Rich Buckler. The 3 of us were chatting, and George completed my sketch. I asked if I could get a picture of the 2 of them posing the same way as Superman and Batman. Almost in unison, they both said "ABSOLUTELY!" George was in great spirits, and got into Superman serious mode for the picture. Of all the shows I have attended, none have ended on a more perfect note than this.

Sorry for the lengthy description, but I feel Rich Buckler deserves the recognition for making this sketch possible and turning a fan's show experience into one of his most memorable show moments! Thank you George and Rich! And Rich, forever may you Rest In Peace!

My only regret at this show, was not getting a picture with both of them :-(
  • Photo 1: Rich completed Batman (Pre-Superman being added).
  • Photo 2. George adding Superman!
  • Photo 3: World's Finest!
  • Photo 4: I took the photo to the 2014 DCC, where both artists were in attendance, and had them sign it.
