Retro Comic Tales

This is a cover mock-up for what will hopefully be the first issue of RETRO TALES, featuring the Discotronic Funk Commandos! This is something that's in the pipeline... and there are some exciting things planned, including a VERY special guest-star for issue 4 (hint: he's an actual 70/80's rock legend!).

Tony Isabella's Bloggy Thing: Artist Bob Larkin Needs Help

From Tony Isabella's Bloggy Thing: Artist Bob Larkin Needs Help:

From Terry Allen:

Bob Larkin, whose done hundreds of paintings for Marvel, DC, Fleer and numerous others is in desperate need of help.Bob's wife, Fran, has been battling various forms of cancer for the past 12 years and the endless medical bills has put an incredible financial strain on the family.  Fran is currently recovering from her latest surgery and Bob has become her caregiver 24/7 leaving him unable to take on new work.

I've been working with Bob the past few years doing primarily Doc Savage based collectible items with the profits going to Bob and family.I've worked with Bob the past couple of years on a sketch book featuring Doc Savage as well as Batman, Stewie, the Shadow , and a whole host of others and it's finally come back from the printers this week.The books are square bound, 8 ½ x 11" 48 black and white pages and are individually signed and numbered by Bob.   The paperback edition is $20.00 and there are two deluxe hard cover editions available that are in short supply.100% of the sales are going directly to the Larkins as well as anything else that might interest you on site. 

Please feel free to PM me or email me through the site if you need and more information or have questions.

Discotronic Funk Commandos: M.O.H.A.W.K. anarchy!

First time I've ever shown off these guys... meet M.O.H.A.W.K. (a parody homage to two of my favourite villains, MODOK and the Mekon) and his gang of Anarchists: Steampunk, Squid Vicious, Mad Nancy and Blockhead. These were planned to be the Discotronic Funk Commandos villains in the first issue.

Hope you like them!
