One of the good things about being a letterer (I’ve always found that profession title clumsy. Perhaps “Letteristé”?) is that I never really get bored with my work. Compared to other comic book professionals letterers are the least paid, but what we lack in page rate we make up for in speed which allows us to work on several projects at once. Luckily I’ve been working on projects that are both fun and rewarding in some way and also encompass my interests to an extent. Let’s get this plug-party started! That came out wrong… Read more
I wound up getting my rad Atomic Robo mini-statue in the mail the other day. In an effort to tease Scott about not getting one himself (yet), I took a few pics of the statue acclimating to it’s new home on my shelves…
At the moment, I’m the process of finishing up the Olympus Volume 1 TPB which will be available sometime December.
I usually wait for Brian or Scott to post new Robo stuff, but with Brian redesigning Nuklear Power, and Scott busy with the Torch I thought I’d pick up their slack and post a few pages from the next Robo series. Atomic Robo and the Shadow From Beyond Time #1 will be available April 15th!
“New York City, 1926. Atomic Robo’s dull night of studying for a physics exam is interrupted by a duo from Nikola Tesla’s past with a dire message: the imminent doom of all life in the universe! Guest starring Charles Fort, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, and the Tunguska Incident.”
I was rootin’ through some of my files the other day and came across an unused sketch for Winter Girl.
I’m not sure why I didn’t end up using it. Maybe I thought it was too juvenile (or crappy) for the project…? With it being seasonally appropriate and all now I went ahead and finished it.
Atomic Robo and the Dogs of War will be concluding this week with issue #5. Volume 2 was a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to starting on volume 3 in a few weeks once I get some new fonts built for the series.
I was fortunate enough to do some lettering on a string of What Ifs? this year. On January 2nd, most of the creative team and editorial staff–Karl Bollers, Patrick Spaziante, Justin Gabrie, Chris Allo and myself– will be appearing at Jim Hanley’s Universe NYC to promote What If? Secret Wars. C’mon down and say hi, it’ll be a good time.
Also, I forgot how much I love Ragnar.

Okay, maybe not massive, but I added a few items to the works and logos pages.
