Some new panel highlights from un-announced work >>>>>>>>>


Here's some panel highlights that continue not long-after last post's comic pages.

I'll be honest, i'm still not ready to disclose too much of this project. BUT -- I will tell you, that it's a large enough scope of a world that I can still share a ton of imagery without you even meeting the central characters.

This project also has a whole-other artistic approach of myself that i'm adding to it and that I cant wait to share. That part, also involves my talented friends.

I don't know if it's going to be single issues yet, or one big release.. but, stay tooned!... O_o

A little sneak peak without too much sneaking around...

Hey everyone, Here's a little sneak peak (and some proof) that I am indeed working on the next Bombshell Comics production ^_^

Sometimes I "fall off the planet", it happens. Especially working on large scoped books... and storyboarding the night away... Both I love no doubt -- but the "work" involved... the "work" involved... : )

 The page below is only page 28 of what might be 200+ pages from my next one..

I'm excited to share more from this one, but it's just not that far enough along yet - too.

I will tell you, the beach seen here is Wildwood, New Jersey.

More to come!..

Stay tooned! 0_o

M.W.F. taking a back seat!...and.. another project in the works...



Sadly, my first unlimited comic series, Misfit Wrestling Federation, must take a back seat beginning this year -- I have another project in the works that's taking my attention to another level of my expression: MY MUSIC. It will come in a variety of formats to experience... i'm very excited.
I'm also looking forward to sharing that with you all, on here... in time.



Eddie McMoon though, still awaits you -- Keep reading M.W.F. - Misfit Wrestling Federation at Rumble Owl Alt. Comics site: http://rumbleowl.com/ (and check out the other sweet comics on there too) and of course, the collected edition of M.W.F.

Beware The Mosquito In 'Style & Grace' - The Collected Graphic Novel is OUT NOW

'Style & Grace', my original 4-part mini series in full color, has now been collected and is now available through www.bombshell-comics.com
-----
This collected graphic novel was originally submitted to a health care foundation, but was somehow over-looked/denied... and now I've taken it in to my own hands to continue to self-publish it -- Like I did from the very beginning and i'm really proud of it!... It feels great to do a piece for a notable and still troubling cause....

Still don't know what i'm leading this too??...

Well....
Get the graphic novel in it's full-color glory, 112pgs for just $20 at www.bombshell-comics.com
but BEWARE THE MOSQUITO!!

End of the year wrap-up!.. Happy Holidays!...and New Year!

As the end of this quick and enjoyable year is approaching, I'd like to reflect upon some proud projects here at my blog along with a happy holidays from Bombshell Comics!..


In February, I finished my 16th comic release, 'THAT BIKE' - which tells the tale of discovering a 1969 AMF Roadmaster muscle bike on a rooftop in Philadelphia and is my first semi-auto bio story:





That very month, I did the storyboards for one of the most viral and talked about commercial spots of the year, with Peter Atencio (Key & Peele) and the production company, Gifted Youth.
The project was Pepsi 'Test Drive" w/ Jeff Gordon:
In May, I released M.W.F. - Misfit Wrestling Federation #4, my 17th comic release of my first unlimited series:





In August, I had the pleasure of storyboarding a Playmates and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles commercial with director, David Jellison and the production company Accomplice Media:


Storyboarding the entire Blake Griffin Gamefly commercial spots with Gifted Youth has been a complete blast too, here's some selective frames:
In October, I had the pleasure of doing some concept drawings for a Tostitos commercial with the talented production company, Gifted Youth as well as fun promotional stuff like Godspell: A Tribute to Rodd Keith:

November saw the release of M.W.F. #5 (which has some of my most dynamic comic work yet):

H


Hello World Zine #5 contains a slew of creative contributors bringing comics, poetry and photography together for the creative human spirit. That was released this December.
Here's some page spreads and the cover (by William Brun):
Keith Schifano/Benjamin Harmon:
 
 Kelly Giles/Roberto Palazzo:
Walton Jordan/Mark Darcourt:
 
Over-all, an awesome year. Happy Holidays to everyone!!...

Going Roddspell with Rodd Keith!...

I excitedly took this opportunity to draw a flyer for a show of a most unique variety this year, it's called Roddspell. A tribute to Rodd Keith. Who's Rodd Keith?... A song poem composer. A musical genius who's profession was composing song poems through advertisements commonly found in comic books, newspapers and the like. A day in the age when aspiring song writers could essentially hire Rodd keith to record their demo. Rodd recorded hundreds of these.
This flyer is for tomorrow evening. A tribute night to his great work.
The night will consist of live music & DJ'd Rodd Keith Song Poems!..
All at the 3 of Clubs - Los Angeles.
 Happy Halloween!

'THAT BIKE' (the real one) GETS A GOLD SEAT!....

The very source material of my feb 2013 release, 'THAT BIKE' gets a gold seat, courtesy of Ebay!...

Making this 1969 AMF even-more original, this NOS or a New Old Stock seat, never used, would've been factory fit by the plant in Little Rock, Ark. Which operated from 1953 to 1980. I found it on Ebay about a week or so ago.
photo courtesy of seller.









The seat was made by the same company who made the back "Sissy-bar" - Troxel. Out of Moscow, Tenn. USA. (Page 6 from 'THAT BIKE' shines some light there!)




All-in-all... a most lucky find -- I feel blessed because it was what I was going on Ebay to look for that very part... and with one auction there, no bidders -- I was aiming to my own please_^/
