Commissioned Epilogue to Man Out of Time

One of my ALL TIME favorite Captain America comics is “Man Out of Time” - a fantastically written miniseries by Mark Waid and GORGEOUSLY illustrated by Jorge Molina ( @jorgemolinam ) that retells the story of Cap coming out of the ice.  It deals with the weight of loss of his removal from his own time, grieving over Bucky’s loss (and remembering him after the Brubaker soft retcon of being about 20 when he “died”).

One of the most striking moments to me is at one point in a flashback, Cap is talking to Bucky about what they want to do after the war is over.  Bucky says that he always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon - he never saw it - and it is a part of/represents what they’re fighting the war for.

At the end of the comic, as Cap has some time to himself, he travels to the Grand Canyon for Bucky, as a way to deal with his loss, and this moment happens:


And, well, this moment always gets me.  Steve going there, drawing Bucky, and “showing him” the Grand Canyon in the only way he can.  It’s his way to try to start to move forward.


It was always a dream of mine to see an epilogue, of Steve being actually able to take him there in person after he finds out he’s still alive.  This weekend, I was able to make that a reality.

I had the distinct privilege to be able to commission Jorge Molina himself (the original artist of Man out of Time), at Wizard World New Orleans for just that scene, and here it is:



I am BLOWN AWAY by the work he did - this is a traditional media piece, done in inks and copic markers, and the values he worked in, the expressions, the dynamic pose that conveys the awe of the location, and yet still have it be a tender, quiet moment between the two of them.  in the Grand Canyon, Steve with the sketchbook, hand squeezing Bucky’s shoulder, both masks off and taking in the natural majesty of the canyon.


And God, to see Bucky looking honest-to-god /HAPPY/.  

;__________;


Thank you SO much, Jorge, this is everything I could have wanted and more.

Maybe I’ll be able to (ditigally) color this some day :)

EDIT - I have digitally colored the commission with Jorge’s permission, and posted it HERE :)

The Great Gatsby (2013) production design
Designed by Catherine Martin

“One of Baz’s main design directives for the look and feel of this particular movie was that he didn’t want a nostalgic, sepia-toned New York City of the 1920s. He wanted the New York we created to feel as vibrant, modern, and cutting-edge as it would have felt to Fitzgerald in 1922.”

George Harrison and tea appreciation post

Q) Do you like tea?
A) “Of course! Doesn’t everybody?” - George Teen Screen Magazine, 1964 [x]

“I don’t think I can make it unless I have a cup of tea.” - George Harrison during the “Paperback Writer” recording session, KRLA Beat, 16 July 1966 [x]

“Well they give you lukewarm water and a crummy looking tea bag. And you know, you’ve got to try to make that into a cup of tea.” - George Harrison in response to a reporter asking how he drinks his tea, Boston, 12 September 1964 [x]

“When we were on the houseboat in Kashmir [in 1966], owned by a little old guy with a white beard called Mr Butt, it was really cold in the night because it was on a lake right up in the Himalayas. Mr Butt would wake us up early in the morning and give us tea and biscuits and I’d sit in bed with my scarf and pullover on, listening to Ravi, who would be in the next room doing his sitar practice - that was such a privileged position to be in.” - George Harrison, Raga Mala [x]

“I remember one time, at an airport, I was starting to worry whether we would get to the gate on time but George just smiled and said he wanted a cup of tea.
‘OK,’ I fretted, ‘but I don’t think we have time.’
'There’s always time for a cup of tea,’ he said.” - Sir Jackie Stewart, Winning Is Not Enough [x]

“[George] came to Hamburg to see a concert [Tom Petty in 1992] and he wanted to take me there but I couldn’t because I had the flu. So he came to my house and made me some tea. We just had a long talk and then he had to go.” - Astrid Kirchherr in an interview with Ken Sharp [x]

“I have one [a guitar] where it has a cupboard in the back with my sandwiches and tea.” - George Harrison joking in a Japanese interview, 1991 [x]

“To wake up at Friar Park to a cup of tea and a slice of lemon cake, to play with George, was magic.” - Jim Keltner, Mojo, November 2014 [x]

“[Ronnie Lobo] remembered the time when George Harrison, the lead guitarist of The Beatles, asked for a pot of tea and Shalimar biscuits. Lobo sent his staff all over Khan Market looking for Shalimar biscuits, but they couldn’t find the brand. With much anxiety, Lobo called up Harrison and asked where he had seen the biscuits, and he was informed that the ex-Beatle had seen it on a neon sign atop the ‘mosque on the sea’ (Haji Ali) in Mumbai. Harrison had no option but to have other biscuits with his tea.” - Indian Restaurant Spy, 27 April 2015 [x]

”[George] Harrison maintained the smallest staff of the three [McCartney, Ono and Harrison], centering his business interests around a handful of trusted aides. ‘He’s charming to the people who work for him,’ one revealed. 'He’ll bring you a cup of tea, and talk to you rather than shout at you.’" - You Never Give Me Your Money: The Battle For The Soul Of The Beatles by Peter Doggett [x]

“All senses were satisfied as incense blew in the morning breeze, mingling with the steam from hot cups of tea.” - Olivia Harrison, “A Few Words About George,” Harrison [x]

“Show me that I’m everywhere, and get me home for tea.” - “It’s All Too Much” (Harrison)

Cap-IM Exchange Fic: Think of This as Solving Problems (That Should Never Have Occurred)

Authors have been revealed for the @cap-ironman Holiday Exchange, and I may now dramatically reveal my secret identity! I did, in fact, write a very long early-canon 616 identity porn & amnesia story for @captainshellhead:

No one knows Tony is Iron Man. Then Tony gets amnesia, and literally no one knows Tony is Iron Man.

I wish to thank @beckydawolf and @kalashia for beta, and a large number of people (see story notes) for helping out in various other ways.

The story title was borrowed from They Might Be Giants’ Erase, my new favorite song about amnesia. Also it occurred to me after I posted it that these two panels from Deadpool vol 3 #7 are essentially a summary of this story. Ha.

Read Think of This as Solving Problems (That Should Never Have Occurred) on AO3 (35,216 words).
