Oh good! More HANK THE BOUNTY HUNTER. Yaya high school zine comics.
On these pages I discovered several new things. Toothbrush ink splatter, mixed media collage, and, apparently, a little known comic book called HELLBOY. Maybe you’ve heard of it?
I love how I’m inking Pilgrim in a way that attempts to copy Mignola, but I still have no idea of how or why the shadows would be cast where I am putting them. :D
And we are so excited to share it with you. Symbolia mixes the best of comics art with thoughtful journalism from around the world.

As his dad picked him up and carried him out of the store…
My life. Except my dad knew better than to fuck with me and my comics.
Jared of Big Planet is a prince of a guy. And we’re lucky to have Kevin Panetta of Big Planet as our Assistant Executive Director! Not to mention Greg Bennett. He’s the soul of the whole enterprise. Our Obi Wan… Big Planet Forever
I have no comments on that silly piece about comics our local Fox affiliate did. Because it’s stupid and pointless. I do wish Big Planet Comics was in the spotlight for something other than this, even if they don’t come across looking at all bad.
So because of that, I’m posting this. Jared Smith, owner of Big Planet Vienna, wrote this as a part of an ad that’s going in the next issue of Magic Bullet. Mark Burrier, the artist, wrote about his process in creating it.
I think it’s fun and cute, even though I’ve told Jared it’s highly unrealistic because we all know girls don’t go into comic book stores.
This is a snazzy ad for the new issue of Magic Bullet.
