Hey, everybody. I've been missing on deviantart for the better part of two months. There are a few reasons for this, but most of them are personal. The rest are due to technical problems with my scanner and my Illustrator software. I'm glad to say that all of that stuff is behind me.
Fortunately, I kept drawing throughout my hiatus and I have quite a bit to show you. The "Liquid Sunshine" story is completely done and I'll be uploading around a page a day. I also have a few pages done for another Robertson story that I'll be sending your way as soon as "Liquid Sunshine" has run its course.
In non-Robertson news, I recently collaborated on a
I recently had an e-mail exchange with comicbookinterviews.com. You can read the results by clicking on the link below...
It's nothing more than me answering some copy/paste questions that are given to every other person that requests an interview. They also refer to my series as "Air Raid Robinson"; that part happens so often that I'm starting to think that I should've used "Robinson" as my guy's surname.
But hey, if you ever wanted to know what kind of pen I use or what my first comic book was, you can now find out without asking me yourself.
February 18th is the final day in which Across The Multiverse With Moloch & Murphy is available as a free download in the kindle store. If you have a kindle, or a device with the kindle app, now is the time to pick up the e-comic.
So far, Across The Multiverse With Moloch & Murphy hasn't done nearly as well as The Adventures Of Air Raid Robertson (I was actually a bit surprised at how many downloads I sold of the Robertson e-book). I was planning on doing another Robertson collection for my next e-book anyways, but the (relatively) tepid reception of Moloch & Murphy has all-but-confirmed such a thing.
Anyways, you can grab Acros
I've read a few of those giant hardbacks of Hal Foster's Prince Valiant. I've also gone over some of Chester Gould's Dick Tracy storylines and I've sampled Superman and Batman's newspaper runs. I've come across those 1930's Mickey Mouse comics by Floyd Gottfredson and I've enjoyed them immensely. There's also Little Nemo in Slumberland; I'd say that comic is essential reading for any comics enthusiast.
There are a lot of holes though. I haven't gotten around to Terry & The Pirates or The Phantom, for example.
I highly recommend anything by Milton Caniff or Roy Crane.
I've been thinking about doing my own take on the (non-superhero) genre. Like maybe science-fiction or present day. Centered around an oldschool soldier of fortune type. I was wondering if you had any thoughts on it.
Milton Caniff and Roy Crane were routinely cited as an influence by Jack Kirby, Joe Kubert, Will Eisner, and just about every other Golden Age creator who matters. I definitely plan on reading their stuff at some point.
I think you'd do interesting things with a "soldier-of-fortune" type of character. I say go for it.
