Jaysis, it looks like Kyle Baker has found a way to animate in 3D every comic book he's every drawn.

One Spear Teaser from Kyle Baker on Vimeo.

More new cover art.

Darwyn Cooke's for his WEIRD WAR TALES one-shot.

Mike Mignola's cover for HELLBOY: THE STORM #3.

Geof Darrow draws THE HAUNTED TANK...

...and every grain of sand in the desert, while he's at it.

Distant Geese

Depending on your tolerance of extreme levels of cursing, Joe Madden's new blog is either hilarious or some sort of a crime against humanity.

Really, man.  Get some therapy.

Brian Bolland takes on the Fine Art world, and wins... I think.

BB sticks it to that bell-end Err√≥, over at Rich Johnston's fabulous country estate website.  Hold the phone... did the good guys just win one?

One for the DEADLINE fans

Glynn Dillon's long-threatened book, THE NAO OF BROWN, finds a home at Self Made Hero.

Missed this at the time: Ashley Wood's (sold-out) THARG 1977 action figure...

...complete with a little stack of polystyrene cups.

Been caught soliciting: Marvel, August 2010.

More Papism.  Could the presence of John Romita Jr make me return to Bendis' Avenger-verse? Probably not. Goran Parlov is the boss of the Windsor & Newton #2.  Dave Johnson's latest PUNISHER MAX cover is fully mental, fully brilliant.   

Cop the lot at CBR.

Everybody seen these preview pages from the last issue of Dan McDaid's JERSEY GODS yet?

Interview with him and Glen Brunswick now up at CBR.  Lovely stuff. I'll miss this series, and probably should have plugged it harder during its lifetime.

Eduardo Risso's variant cover for SUPERMAN #700

Been caught soliciting: DC, August 2010.

If he's British, and begins with B, he's in.

Been caught soliciting: Dark Horse, August 2010.

I won't be buying this, 'cus I've already got it. But do take a look at it, s'lovely stuff, the forerunner of the work they're doing now in DAYTRIPPER.

This month's bits of Mignola business. The SOLOMON KANE cover is deliciously pulpy.

The second STAR WARS OMNIBUS features all of that lovely Al Williamson THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK adaptation you probably remember fondly if you are an old fart around my age.

See the lot at CBR.

New to the sidebar:

Down the right, at the bottom - "Labelled With Love", a cloud-formed directory of every label I've ever tagged an entry at this blog with. And when you've been blogging as long as I have, everybody and everything ends up getting a tag. It's been meta-data up the yin-yang 'round these parts all week.

Fancy a quick reminder of the greatness of 2000AD?

Try this, courtesy of Joe Ackerman.

Oh that magic feeling...

Also via the internet-scouring of Mr Jason Garrattley, it's the Fab Faux essaying pretty much all of side two of The Beatles' ABBEY ROAD, which is yer Mount Parnassus of pop, right there.

Don't forget to hang on right to the end.

A little bit of various in the morning.

Dan McDaid is available for commissions at the moment, and he's just posted this one at his blog.  I've been going back over my back pages of late, tagging them, as my librarian's mind focuses on an idea about metadata for work. And y'know what? I'm labelling a lot of posts from 2008 with "Dan McDaid", "Jack Kirby", and "Doctor Who". Here's all three together, in excelsis.

Eric Canete puts as much work into a headshot sketched at a convention as some people do in a lifetime. To prove a point, here's Hellboy and Ladytron.

Just came across this from this guy's Flickr photostream. Crackin' stuff.

Saw this at Jason Garrattley's Ancient and Forever Tumblr site. Hey, Jason: I reckon you could do with posting that Dan McDaid image there, too.
