Scary is a Real Godmother Ch1

Scary Godmother sighed as she looked outside her house. Her velvety, purple bat wings drooped as she watched the rain outside beat down on the windows. "If it keeps this up, Bug-A-Boo, it's gonna be a very wet Halloween." She said, shaking her head as her hat drooped as well. Bug-A-Boo, a huge, furry monster with sharp teeth and a ton of eyes, looked at Scary Godmother. He looked outside and nodded. "Yeah…it's gonna be a depressing Halloween Party if this keeps up." "I agree there!" Mr. Pettibones yelled as he carried in spider cookies and warm milk on two trays, "Here you go, Scary." "Thanks, Skully." Scary smiled slightly as she took one

My Bio

Here's a short bio of my adventures in comic art-

Here's a short bio of my adventures in comic art-

I'm a 1982 graduate of the American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago. I have been a professional Comic Book Artist since 1981. Working for comic book companies such as, Noble Comics, First Comics, Marvel Comics, DC comics, and Dark Horse. Drawing characters The Justice Machine, The Badger, The Punisher, Silver Surfer, Batman, Magnus Robot Fighter and more.

The bulk of my comic work doing pencils was with the great writer Mike Baron. In 1993 we co-created a series called SPYKE that was originally published by Epic/Marvel.

I've also done several pieces of art for the Upper Deck trading card game Marvel Vs. and a lot of sketch cards.

 As a comic book inker, I've worked with other artists on Marvel Comics books such as the Earth X trilogy, The Punisher, The Amazing Spider-Man, Daredevil, Wolverine and The Hulk.

At DC Comics I've inked books with characters Batman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Fate, etc.

Artists I've been fortunate to ink include- Jon Bogdanove, Doug Braithwaite, Steve Ditko, George Freeman, Ron Garney, Keith Giffen, Adam Kubert, John Paul Leon, Ron Lim, Lan Medina, Steve Rude, Ryan Sook, Jill Thompson, Ron Wagner, Ryan Sook, and many more.

In late 2014 I finished illustrating the graphic novel "Van Helsing Vs. Jack the Ripper Vol. 2" written by Jacques Lamontagne and published by the French publisher Soleil Productions> in 2014. Preview Gallery>

I’m currently working on a graphic novel written by Carl Potts titled "The FLYING COLUMN" to be published be Dead Reckoning, a division of Naval Institute Press. It's set during WWII and is based on the events of early Feb. 1945 when the 1st Cavalry Division and 44th Tank Battalion fought their way through 100 miles of Japanese-held territory to rescue thousands of allied civilian prisoners in Manila.

A huge story and challenge to take on, but hey, that's how you do your best work. You can preview more at my Flying Column Gallery here -

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
