Over on Pencil Fight Club the prompt for January was to imagine the world 1,000 years in the future. As a fan of alternate future heroes, I thought I’d go mythological and imagine Icarus 3021 – a man who not only flies close to the sun, but walks on its plasmatic gassy surface in a very shiny suit. Good for a bit of fun and color practice.
This year my creative partner Turner has decided to theme his inktober entries toward Pokemon, so if you like greyscale pocket monsters hoo boy, has Turner got some trading card sized pieces he’d be willing to sell you. Pictured are Pokedex, Golem, Gastly and Magikarp, I think
When I was young, probably a young teenager, a whippoorwill decided to take up residence on my parent’s garage. Despite being a ground bird, I swear this one posted up on the roof, meaning his (nocturnal) calls were muffled for my parents on the first floor, and seemed to be funneled directly at me. I threw open the window, hollering at the thing to try and get it to leave. Though it was dark, I thought I could make out this lump on the roof, steadfastly remaining to continue his call throughout the night.
The gang at Gentleman & Scholar Comics had a pretty good showing at the MASSive Comic Con down in Worcester last weekend – we broke double digits for items sold!
In addition, I should have a big announcement on The Punchin’ Bag coming soon (hint: think ‘x’)
And right now a quick preview of the next Punchin’ Bag comic:
See ya soon -Jim
I was working with the brush today and did some headshots. A little Ego the Living Planet, a little noseless 90s Wolverine, a little Man-Thing.

Late last year I worked on a comic book, “Over The Top Tales”, which is a pair of stories set in World War I. A full length, black and white comic, “Over The Top Tales” features:
The Beacon – A young black man from the United States’ 24th Infantry Regiment as he is thrust into action on the front lines of WWI, even before the U.S.’ official involvement! Will Tyler Durham die for a country that won’t even acknowledge his existence in combat?
Into The Mud – Another young soldier who sinks deep beneath the surface of the Ypres Salient in 1917. What emerges will horrify both you and him!
If you’re interested in WWI, horror comics, or black and white comics, give it a look here!
