The Montreal Comic Con this past weekend was another big success. Montreal fans are the best, they never fail to come up with peculiar things to keep me busy. I will get some pictures online this weekend after I finish up some deadlines... Some personal favorites include Grimlock devouring Michael Bay, and Galactus devouring the earth.
Some old-but-new stuff here... I'm sifting through work I've done in the last year or two, and I found this group of expressions I did for The Mask. I am a huge fan of The Mask. I discovered the comic after the movie came out in 1994 (?!) and it blew my doors off. Great writing from John Arcudi (who is writing BPRD over at Dark Horse, which is my absolute favorite book right now) and stupendously hilarious art from Doug Mahnke. The book ran a couple of mini-series past its sell-by date but The Mask, The Mask Returns, and The Mask Strikes Again! are classics, I recommend them vociferously.
The reason I have a cluster of Mask expressions is simple: I would love to do a Mask mini-series. It's on my to-do list and I really hope that I'll get a chance to re-introduce the character to a new generation. Got me hooked on comics and also taught me, "The world of man is not this world, the world of man is the human consciousness, and is therefore infinite," which is great to pull out if you want to sound like a five-dollar man in a two-dollar room.
If anyone happens to have any copies of Walter: Campaign of Terror (a four-issue spinoff of the original Mask series), could you send me a message? I haven't read it and I cannot find it around town.
I also found this adorable, half-finished devil girl. I might have started it for a Hellboy jam some years ago? Regardless, I gave her a spit-shine and here she is.
More after the weekend. Cheers!
