I was on a Skype call with my buddy EJ while I was sketching this out. He loves Superman, so I’m sure he’ll get a warm fuzzy feeling in his pants when he finds out. This was supposed to be just a pencil sketch, but I decided to take it to digital completion since I’m pretty happy about the spirit of it. I love All-Star, and this is somewhat of a love letter to Morrison and Quitely.
This week features Action Comics #870, Ferryman #1, and Marvel Zombies 3 #1. Each of us also also do quick reviews of other books out this week and give our opinions on the Watchmen motion comic and the rumors about Megan Fox’s possible comic films. We also talk about what we think of summer comics events and its implications on the future of comics.

In this episode, EJ, Alex, and I review:
We also have a round of War of Thumbs discussing the recent influx of TV-show comics, political content in comic books, and the censorship of All-Star Batman #10. To cap it off, we crossfired points about the difference between comics and graphic novels… assuming of course that there really is one. You can also download the episode here.
Letting my big brother, Roby, have a bit of the spotlight today. Here’s a huge tribute piece he did a while back, which has elements from covers one thru three of Waid and Ross’s Kingdom Come series under DC’s Elseworlds imprint. My teeth would probably melt if I tried something like this, so props to the man.
Hello, all. I did this piece ten years ago, a couple of months after KC came out. A real big fan of Alex Ross, I loved the way he did the covers for the first three books of his classic series. The way he decided to pose all major characters in one shot, as if done in a studio, added even more depth to already incredible artwork. It’s as if they all decided to take time out from their busy “superhero” lives just to pose for one iconic photo op. It made the whole piece come alive. – Roby
