Wednesday Roundup

Today I’m going to be experiencing a full spectrum of what comics have to offer be it reading level, genre, story type, and values. Which is infinitely weird because it both promotes the fact that I have exceptionally bizarre tastes and that I’m nothing if not critical the most of the things I love the most. So let’s just jump right into it.

lso I’m not going to go fully into this in the actual reviews but it bears mentioning here: none of these covers are fair examples of the actual content of their issues. Like this is some 90s/early 2000s sorta marketing lies at this point. GIVE US COOL COVERS THAT ACTUALLY REFER TO THE COMICS, GUYS. So Diana has no fight with an army, Cass and Bruce have all of four pages together, Terry never is in contact with Curare, Pigeon Pete isn’t really doing more than he ever has in Turtles (which is, he says his name), Riri still hasn’t met any other superheroes yet other than Pepper, and the Spider-Fam DOES go against Sandman but he does not look that way nor are they in more danger from him than, say, Peter’s sanity is in danger of losing it when they go to a Chuck-E-Cheese with an annoying band song on repeat.

So these covers are from the LYING FAKE MEDIA is what I’m saying.

Marvel’s Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, DC’s Batman Beyond, DC’s Detective Comics, Marvel’s Invincible Iron Man, IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, DC’s Wonder Woman

Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective is out today! It’s written by the multi-talented Octavia Spencer and published by Simon & Schuster. I created the cover illustration working with art director Chloe Foglia (who also designed the text for the final cover). There are 10 black and white illustrations inside as well.

When I first read the book I couldn’t believe my luck. Along with solving crimes, Randi and her friend D.C. are BIG martial arts fans (they study Tae Kwon Do but love all the classic Kung Fu films). Thanks to an older brother, I was pretty much raised on a steady diet of martial arts movies and studied Kung Fu as a kid. I never once thought it would have anything to do with my illustration work. It made it so much fun bringing these characters to life!
