I is for Image
Working on a cover. #rocketraccoon
OFF TO SAN DIEGOOOOO
It’s true! I’m going for ONE DAY because I’m an IDIOT!
Tomorrow (Friday) I’ll be on the I is for INCEPTION panel with Matt, where I assume we’ll talk about the movie for a while?
Friday, July 25 at 11 a.m., join us for an hour in room 23ABC for “IMAGE COMICS: I is for INCEPTION.” In comics, collaboration is the lifeblood of creativity. Bestselling creators Fiona Staples (SAGA), Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky (SEX CRIMINALS), Kelly Sue DeConnick (PRETTY DEADLY), John Layman (CHEW), Steve Seagle (IMPERIAL), and additional special surprise guests, will gather together to share their experiences and inspirations when creating entire universes from scratch and the teamwork it takes to do so.
And IMMEDIATELY AFTER, Matt and I will be signing at the Image booth (#2729) from 12:00-1:45! It’s a TICKETED thing, but old ticket stubs for Inception WILL NOT COUNT.
And that’s it! Then I guess I go to the Eisners that night and experience the pomp and pageantry of the comics industry as bearded men in jeans put old sportsjackets on and toast the murder of Archie! SEE YOU THERE.
Time Out has a list of the 100 Best Sci-Fi movies here. They worked from a vast set of top 10 lists, offered to them by a mix of novelists, film-makers, critics, and scientists. I contributed one (right here: scroll down). I admit I wrote my list on the fly, after all of about seven minutes of thought… but with more time to think it over, I’m not sure there’s much here I’d change.

Few process shot shots I found on my phone from the Planet of the Apes variant I did a couple years ago.
Superior Iron Man #1
Here are a couple sketches from the aborted “Bat-Man” project with Azzarello. Initially conceived as a First Wave title, I wanted Robin to be the son of Wu Cheng from the Blackhawks — fuck you, Chop Chop — sent to be raised in the US by Bruce Wayne. Get some pulp in that juice.
I dunno about you folks, but I’m pretty excited to see Sam Wilson (formerly The Falcon) step in to Captain America’s buccaneer boots :)
Whatcha thinking about, Luci?
