SDCC '15: The Adventures Of Being A Cosplay Boyfriend

I've personally only cosplayed maybe once or twice during conventions, and I was comfortable the entire time because my outfits were relatively simple. I was the Tenth Doctor during the Long Beach Comic-Con one year (and another time at a Renaissance Faire, which some people were not amused), and Lobster Johnson another. Both my outfits […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015- Best Lettering

If you don't even realize you're reading the word balloons or sound effects in a comic, then the letterer is doing a fantastic job leading you throughout the story by an invisible hand. The only time you really notice bad lettering is if it doesn't fit inside the balloon properly, the font is something similar […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Coloring

When coloring, it's always a good idea to use a scheme that appropriately matches the tone of the comic. One does not color Batman in rainbow attire (unless written that way by Morrison), but rather in the traditional black, dark blues, and grays. Color can make or break a comic, and really helps make the […]


Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best Penciller/Inker

I recently got back into sketching after an extremely long hiatus, and it feels good creating something from nothing. Am I any good? Hardly, but I'm not looking to get paid to do it for a living. It's very gratifying to sketch, and takes some practice to get certain shapes and figures to form. I […]

Countdown To The Eisners 2015 – Best U.S. Edition Of International Material

While the American comics scene is highly regarded, it's always nice to be reminded of what good storytelling sans superheroes and world-shattering events looks like. Sometimes it's enjoyable to just lose oneself in a good European comic, preferably translated. Then again, some are still easy to follow if they haven't been translated because they let […]
