Sal Buscema... Comics Fast & Furious Artist

I've made no secret that my all-time favourite comic artist is the legendary Sal Buscema. A huge influence in my own work, Sal's dynamic artwork and excellent storytelling made him one of Marvel's most popular and well loved artists. Thanks to the Official Walt Simonson fanpage on Facebook, I found out that TwoMorrows Publishing has released a book solely devoted to Sal's career.. titled Sal Buscema: Comics Fast & Furious Artist.

This book features an excellent in-depth interview with Sal, who talks about his 40 year long career in comics (and still going strong!). He also discusses how he broke into the comics business and working with his brother, the equally legendary John Buscema. It also includes a gallery of his artwork... which features some of Sal's favourite published work, plus some of his own personal work as well. My copy of this book arrived the other day, and I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone who is a fan of this amazing artist. You can either order the book from TwoMorrows, or Amazon.

The New Doctor

Saturday April 3rd, 2010.... a day that heralded the start of a new era for the long-running BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. The highly anticipated first episode of the new series, now starring Matt Smith in the title role aired tonight.... and was the first full episode to feature the 11th Doctor. I'm not going to post a review of the show.... I just want to say that Matt Smith is FANTASTIC as the Doctor, and is a worthy successor to the excellent David Tennant, who raised the show to whole new levels of popularity during his tenure as the 10th Doctor. This episode also introduces us to the ever-so-slightly attractive Karen Gillan... who excels in her performance as new companion Amy Pond.

The 11th Doctor is here.... and the Tardis is in very good hands.

My work with Joe Rubinstein

Over this past year or so I've been honoured to work with one of my all-time favourite inkers, comics legend Joe Rubinstein. It was an absolute dream come true to work with one of my long-time favourite artists, and I am very proud to be able to share this work with you.
