All eight covers from the Thor: the Mighty Avenger series— and the FCBD 2011 cover (minus trade dress).
Colors on all (with the exception of #4, which I believe is Christina Strain) by Matt Wilson.
A wonderful book. We need another like it.
Just thought I’d share: The final cover to TOOTH & CLAW 1, before logos, etc. are added. Benjamin Dewey, folks!
"I don’t believe that paperbacks will ever destroy hardbound publishing… The paperback has actually benefited publishing in more ways than one. Selling reprint and other subsidiary rights is now what keeps a lot of hardbound publishers from going bankrupt, because without a paperback sale, a book doesn’t make expenses most of the time. Also, paperbacks encourage the reading habit; people start with them, and a small percentage will graduate to hardbound books. So new readers are created and books are provided for people who can’t afford the hardbound ones—and that’s the greatest advantage of all… I think the hardbound publisher’s got to be in on this some way or another, and the one who hasn’t buttressed himself with an interest in a paperback house has been very short-sighted."
Bennett Cerf, on the emergence of paperback books in the 1930s.
For laffs, substitute “ebook” for “paperback” and “print” for “hardbound”.
Tragedies of life
It’s one thing to retweet these. They’re great.
It’s another to deliberately crop off the artist’s credit line to try to make sure no one knows who really made them or where they’re from.
For the record, they’re by the excellent Benjamin “Bendouille” Dewey, and they’re from http://tragedyseries.tumblr.com
And you’re a turd, omgbuglen.
Out this week!
[Actually, it’s the ASTRO CITY: VICTORY HC that’s due out, along with the THROUGH OPEN DOORS TPB. The DOORS HC, pictured here, has been out for months.]
Anonymous said: I'm sure Fabian Nicieza is thrilled for a character he created years ago to be reduced to nothing but a ludicrous punchline on your Tumblr as a means of only spewing insults towards people who might like the character. You're a real dickhead, Tom, and this Tumblr does you no favors.
If there’s one thing Fabian possesses, it’s a sense of humor. Another is a sense of self-awareness. I doubt he could make it through a complaint about my terrible insults to Adam-X while keeping a straight face.
If it bothers you, then fine, by all means express your opinion. But please avoid putting words or opinions into the mouths of others to try to bolster your opinion. Particularly when it’s the dead (which Fabian is not) I find such self-serving behavior egregious.
Fabian would laugh, tell you how much money those books made him, and insult the Red Sox.
No, wait. He’d do that if I made cracks about Adam-X…

Game. Set. Match.
Man, he looks stupider than Century. And _he_ was eaten by rats.
Can he flap all of his little blades and fly around?
