Vinnie Tuscany 2014

Vinnie Tuscany 2014
Vinnie has had a mohawk since 2013. I gave him one to change things up a bit. It makes his head resemble a snow cone.

Today's Comic Haul (1/19/14)

The Fox
Astro City #8
Deadpool: The Gauntlet #1
The Fox #3
Purchased at Bob's Comic Castle. Total amount: $7.41
Notes- The third haul of the year! I was too lazy to write up the second...I only grabbed Deadpool because it was free. I think it's my first Deadpool comic. I'll have to check the archives. Not a bad introduction to the character, but I doubt I'll be getting more Deadpool comics in the future. Unless they're free!...My last haul included The New Teen Titans: Games graphic novel that Bob was selling for 8 bucks. I couldn't turn down a bargin like that so I grabbed it and I enjoyed it immensely. I was a big Wolfman-Perez Titans fan back in the day and Games seems like a fitting topper to that era. Blame it on dewy eyed nostalgia, but it was fun to revisit those characters again and anytime Wolfman and Perez wants to do a follow up, I'll be there! (By the by, here's a review of Games by cartoonist extraordinaire Dale Martin a couple years ago!)...Winner of this haul? The Fox
Irwin Hasen had a hand in his creation, but the Fox belongs to Red Circle Comics.

The Weed

The Weed
More plant than human, this supercriminal likes to take root in Morton City and occasionally tangles with the longneck of the law, Giraffe Man!

Polar Bear

Polar Bear
I drew this Thursday at work. I had five minutes before I could leave for the day so I aimlessly made this in a couple minutes. It's a quick doodle, but I like the expression on the polar bear's face for some reason. He looks puzzled.

Today's Comic Haul (1/4/14)

Pulsar Stargrave
Dead Boy Detectives #1
Larfleeze #6
Purchased at Bob's Comic Castle. Total amount: $6.40
Notes- First haul of the year!...Sadden to hear recently that Sergio Aragones Funnies will be ending with #12. Guess it was designed to be a maxi-series instead of an ongoing. Boo on that!...As a fan of the characters, I was happy when Vertigo announced that the Dead Boy Detectives were getting their own series and the first issue didn't disappoint. In fact, it is the winner of today's haul!
Pulsar Stargrave belongs to DC Comics.

As of Now

The holidays are over. They were rather uneventful this year (To be honest, they are rather uneventful most years), but I had a good time celebrating with family and friends.

As I type this, a major snow storm is heading my way. Inches of snow and plenty of cold from the sounds of it. I really am not in the mood for a blizzard, but, then again, who is?

I’ve been off work for two weeks. It seems like I didn’t get much accomplished during my time off (Typical, typical...). I finally got my brakes fixed so I guess that counts for something. And I’m down to one comic book in my pull list over at Bob’s Comic Castle. That hasn’t happened in over a decade so I’m calling that an accomplishment, too!

I’m slightly disappointed “Draw Dollar Bill Day” didn’t get much traction. I guess very obscure Marvel supporting characters from the 1970s just don’t inspire the creative juices anymore! Thanks again to Dale Martin for making my day though!

We had a great audience for the last episode of Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show. Doing the show with so many top notch folks continues to be a highlight for me every month. Looking forward to starting our third season in March!

After years of wanting to, but never doing it, I finally became a subscriber to The New Yorker. It usually takes me a month to read one issue so something tells me I’ll be reading a lot more in 2014.

I continue to be a big fan of the Total Drama cartoons especially their character designs. Just stating that for the record.

I was hoping to write a little wrap up of 2013, but it hasn’t happened yet. Overall it was a good year for me. Hoping 2014 is even better for us all!
