Girls and boys, things are hectic and about to get more hectic... after all the Con dust has settled down and the pages are happening.

Lots of pages. Lots and lots, which will be shown.

That "Make Good Art" speech from Neil Gaiman feels more important each passing day as I read the news... or as I see everyday life...

Anyway... we're in for an interesting last third of the year...

Have a nice weekend, folks.

TLIID 255. The Demon on Jack Kirby's Birthday by AxelMedellin
TLIID 255. The Demon on Jack Kirby's Birthday
Girls and boys, this week at The Line it is Drawn, we celebrate the King's 98 birthday by drawing some of his creations.

Yes, I did start reading comics with reprints of the original Fantastic Four, Avengers and such... even then I knew there was something very weird about the way that Kirby guy drew faces and machines and put those fists and legs always in your face... but everything felt so powerful and exciting. I've always considered myself more influenced by John Buscema, but I couldn't shake the Kirby out of my system with a full blood transfusion. All those techniques we take for granted, all those characters that are part of everyday life, those came from his mind. None other like him, not now, not ever.

So, here's Etrigan. And yes, the suggestion called for rhyme, and that wasn't a part of Kirby's original story (I believe that was Alan Moore's idea), but it's fun, so, there you go. Those super-thick lines and odd joints are fun to do.

TLIID 254. Agent Coulson meets Batman '66 by AxelMedellin
TLIID 254. Agent Coulson meets Batman '66
Girls and boys, this week at The Line it is Drawn, we put TV heroes together. To be fair, the suggestion was about Coulson geeking out to Bruce Wayne, but Batman is a lot more fun to draw.

TLIID 253. Roddy Piper vs Spider Jerusalem by AxelMedellin
TLIID 253. Roddy Piper vs Spider Jerusalem
Girls and boys, this week at The Line it is Drawn, we pay homage to the late Rowdy Roddy Piper by facing wrestlers and comic book characters.

I'm not really a wrestling fan, so, all the wrestlers I know are those who appear in movies. So, I went with this suggestion, featuring Roddy himself, in his classic "They Live" character. As most of you probably know, in that classic movie he stumbles upon a pair of glasses which reveal him the truth about the conquering aliens controlling media. Spider Jerusalem is the protagonist of Transmetropolitan, the comic book series by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson. Brilliant, funny and smart, and full of political comment, go check it out. Spider also has some unique glasses and is always seeking the truth, no matter the cost. And he carries a bowel disruptor. Yes.

So, these two would work together. After a messy fight, of course.

TLIID 252. Saga, animated style by AxelMedellin
TLIID 252. Saga, animated style
Girls and boys, this week at The Line it is Drawn, we pay homage to Bruce Timm trying hard to draw several comic book characters in his style. Impossible task, of course.

You know how passionate I am about Saga, so, there you go...
