BANDETTE by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover is one of our favorite comics. So when, on the same day, it was announced that the digital-only Bandette was nominated for FOUR Eisner awards, and that the fourth issue is now available from Comixology, we knew we needed to do something to celebrate. The answer? Four sketchcards!
Terry Blas drew the second. Like all of Terry’s work, this piece is snazzy. It’s 2.5 ” by 3.5.” Ink and marker on cardstock. Terry is best known for his webcomic, Briar Hollow.

BANDETTE by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover is one of our favorite comics. So earlier this week, when it was announced that the digital-only Bandette was nominated for FOUR Eisner awards, and that the fourth issue is now available from Comixology, we knew we needed to do something to celebrate. The answer? Four sketchcards!
Here’s the first! It’s from Steve Lieber. 2.5 ” by 3.5.” Ink and watercolor on cardstock. It’s always fun seeing an illustrative artist like Steve exercise his cartooning chops. The original is available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/129852550/bandette-sketchcard-by-steve-lieber
Batman color sketch by @steve_lieber @ron_randall & @greyallison. The original might still be available in our Etsy store.
Rare original comics art from @BenjaminDewey of The Tragedy Series. It’s not easy to find Dewey comics originals, but Periscope has 4 available in our Etsy store.
Sketch of Dancy Flammarion from Alabaster by Steve Lieber. 9” by 12”, ink on bristol.
Alabaster is ©Caitlin R. Kiernan and is published by Dark Horse Comics.
Colleen Coover pencilled and Steve Lieber inked and watercolored this sketchcard of B. D. Belgique, the long-suffering police officer eternally foiled by BANDETTE. (They’re from the comics series of the same name illustrated by Coover and written by Paul Tobin.)
Ben is one of the few artists creating ORIGINAL work in the sea of screencaps and reblogs that is tumblr. He’s hilarious and prolific. That effort deserves some support. If you’ve liked his comics you can buy prints or postcards, or even just share this link. Thanks!
HELLBOY art by @Steve_Lieber and @Jonathan_Case India ink on 9 by 12” Strathmore bristol. The original art might still be available at our Etsy store. Check and see!
Jonathan’s THE CREEP #1 just came out this week from Dark Horse (with a Mike Mignola cover!) It’s written by John Arcudi, Jonathan does pencils, inks and colors. It’s a first rate book- a smart and very human detective story. Pick it up!
