Paul is a studio mate of mine at Periscope Studio and has written a whole lot of Marvel books including: like ALL of the Marvel adventures books, or something like that. I don’t know. He writes a lot of them. And since I joined the studio he and I have found we have a mutual love for European comics. He has one of the best graphic novel collections I’ve ever seen.
When Paul mentioned the idea of doing The Thing as Tintin I thought- that is a strange and fantastic idea, and, despite the fact that I already had my hands full with X-Men, I said yes. I had to do it… I couldn’t let someone ells do it, right? An opportunity to draw Tintin meets the Fantastic Four doesn’t come along to often. Another thing I liked about the idea was that I would get to ink and color it as well.
So I did it, and it was a blast. It’s short but I really tried to chock it full of comic book goodness. I hope people check it out. The issue is Fantastic Four Giant-Size Adventures #1 and it comes out June 24. You can see another little sneak peek of it at Paul Tobin (Dot) Net. Check it out.
On a completely separate note I want to thank Robin Bougie for posting about me on his Live journal several weeks back and getting a bunch of new people to start following my LJ. That’s pretty damn cool of him. And thanks to all the people who read his post and checked out my stuff. I’ve been wanting to respond to the comments left on my last entry but haven’t been allowing myself much Internet time lately. Anyway, thanks again.
