Sketch Cards for Keira by Peter Simeti





One of my 2 beautiful daughters, Keira, will be turning 4 years old next week. Even at such a young age she enjoys comics and art immensely. She's building quite the collection of original works and this week Peter Simeti of ALTERNACOMICS (The CHAIR) put his pen to paper for two birthday wishes that she'll really have fun with--

Harley Quinn and Batgirl.

Hot List- Afterlife With Archie #1 / Life With Archie #23

Afterlife With Archie #1 / Life With Archie #23

Harvey Comics - 2013

Afterlife With Archie #1 is an amazing re-envisioning of a classic property that needed a fresh new angle. Francesco Francavilla's  art perfectly complements Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's bold story that is only at issue #4 at the time of this post and already has TV and movie talks buzzing. Riverdale is in the grip of the zombie apocalypse, and the gang has to adapt and survive.

Life With Archie #23 featured a variant Francavilla cover that introduced us to the coming Archie-Zombieverse.

Go buy them.

Detective Comics #647

DC Comics (1992)

With another Robin recently biting the dust, it's time to start speculation on the next one.
Detective Coimics #647 is the 1st appearance of Stephanie Brown, a worthy candidate to possibly don the red, green and yellow tights of eminent doom.

99 Issues 1 Year Anniversary Event

Had a good time today. Mardi Gras parade with the family this morning and a comic signing this afternoon at 99 Issues in Mobile, Alabama. Met quite a few talents in the comic world. Steven Butler...Steve Scott.. Quite a few others.

K. Michael Russell (who will soon be a lot more popular with his undisclosed monthly debut) drew his take on Batman for me 

and artist Jason Craig signed my copy of DYNAMITE's EVIL ERNIE: Origin of Evil TPB
 Congrats to 99 Issues for keeping the doors open for a year in this town and getting over that hump. 

Cheers, guys! (and gals)
