spaceleech said: They don't get the same kinda recognition that Quitely, Byrne, or Sienkiewicz get, but I think Bengus and Capcom did some great things with X-Men/Marvel characters.

Yeah, I love those Bengus X-Men. Imagine a Bengus-drawn X-men arc! I think for me personally, the Capcom games and aesthetic had a huge impact on my view of X-Men/Marvel back then, too. Everything was so cool

jacobshapiro said: DC was able to turn the old Batman TV show into an awesome comic, which got me thinking… shouldn't Marvel make a Supaidāman comic?! Of course, with Spidey in a mech and your newfound Marvel career, you should be doing the art.

Haha, I think it’d be pretty hard to follow up on the crazy Ikegami manga. That would be a fun read, though. (And Marvel career? I’m just doing fill ins!) Thanks!

While we are still in the process of shipping out kickstarter incentives and contributor comp copies of the kaBOOMbox Vol.1 anthology, we were able to have a few on hand with us at Heroes Con a few weekends back. George Marston from picked one up and was kind enough to review it. Here’s what he had to say.

"KaBOOMbox, Vol. 1 (Published by Brand New Nostalgia; Review by George Marston; ‘Rama Rating: 10 out of 10): In a way, it’s hard to review a book like KaBOOMbox Vol. 1. It’s not really a story, or a collection of stories, so much as a yearbook of some of the indie comics world’s brightest up and comers. With contributions from too many amazing creators to name them all, KaBOOMbox is a perfect starting point for anyone looking to break out of the mainstream scene. Typically excellent pieces from names like Tradd Moore, Toby Cypress and Ming Doyle anchor bigger surprises from Andrew MacLean, Joe Querio, and Jorge Coelho, and even that is only scratching the surface. With not a dud in almost 100 pages, KaBOOMbox, Vol. 1 is a perfect window into the zeitgeist of a burgeoning corner of the indie publishing scene.” (link)

A lot of love and hard work went into that book, so I’m glad it shows through. And as soon as we can get the books into the hands of all the people who helped make it (Hold tight, folks. They’re coming.), we’ll be offering copies for sale in the OOSA Store

Stay tuned!

Well, that’s flattering…

shoujostrip said: Hi, just wanted to say I really love your artwork and was wondering if I could ask you a question? (btw, that wasn't the question). I was wondering what kind of brand do you use for your nibs? I've been experimenting with a few and I can tell when I have a Zebra G-nib, but what's the difference between Tachikawa and Nikko? Same goes for Maru pens. O_o Which do you think are better (or which ones do you prefer)? Is one preferred over others among professionals? btw, can't wait for your Spiderman.

Hey! As you noted in your other message, I use Zebra G-nibs and Tachikawa maru ones. To be honest, it’s mostly just what you feel best using. Some of them are softer to use/not as stiff. I like the ones I use cuz they just work for me, but it’s always a good idea to get a sampler or something and just try out a few different makes. I’m pretty sure everybody just uses what they feel like!

And thanks!
