All Hail the King!
Here is one of my finished Hero Initiative Jack Kirby day Commissions. I’ll be posting another later. I simply cannot overstate the amount of influence Kirby had on my young mind.
P.S. Check out my Updated ETSY Store for more awesome stuff, and pages from my recent Superior Foes of Spider-man backup!

I couldn’t quite #wakeupanddraw this from Iowa, but I sent my beau elliscomics the digital pencils for this Enchantress piece and he did a gorgeous ink and inkwash finish! The original will be auctioned for the Heroes Initiative.

READ “SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN”
Even if you aren’t reading any other Spider-Man comics, or any other Marvel comics, or have never even read a Marvel comic. If you are a fan of comedy, “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” — inaccessible and off-putting title be damned — is proving on a monthly basis that superhero comics can be as insane and hilarious as the best sitcoms on television.
This book stars a bunch of D-List Marvel villains as they try to level up and pull off a big score. But they’re all idiots. And they do not get along. It’s pretty much “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” with super powers. The series is structured in such a way that even if you’ve never heard of these characters, even if you’ve never read a comic book before, they boil down everything into quick flashbacks and get you caught up. But really, many of these characters and many of these takes on these characters all start with “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” #1. It’s a fresh start.
And if you’re reading and enjoying “Hawkeye,” know that this has the exact same “I can’t believe this is a mainstream super comic” vibe that makes “Hawkeye” feel so special.
Read it. Read it digitally right now.
An appreciation of @nickspencer & @steve_lieber’s Superior Foes.
I think this is done.
