We're proud to reveal the cover for the first issue of NEVERMINDS drawn by Jamie Fay and colored by Rey Arzeno. I'm curious what people think. I really love it. Shown here are our three main characters. The blond should be recognizable, from the previous version of NEVERMINDS, and her name is Alanis. The brunette in the back is Nina. And the fire-head is Samanya. That's all I'm saying for now. Stay tuned for more info and previews soon!

Here is the last of the sketches I got from the talented art team of Joe Haley and T.J. Dort. As I've said a bunch of times on here, Joe and T.J. are great guys and I love their book, the Underburbs. I can't recommend it enough as a great all ages comic. It's truly a fun book. This sketch they did of Heartache and Wicckid from the 3rd Gen SENTINELS is my favorite of all the sketches I've gotten from them. I think they got their personalities down perfectly! Check out Joe and T.J.'s work at www.underburbs.deviantart.com.

Here’s the fourth promo image for the upcoming NEVERMINDS series! We're close to having the book finished and are really excited to get it out there. Like I said before, we've been working on this series for a looooooong time and completely reworked everything. Everything! And even though it was hard to do that, I know it was for the best and the results are amazing. Seriously, I think people are going to love what Jamie and Rey have done. For now, this is the last promo image, next we'll be posting some preview panels and pages!

Here's another of the sketches I got by the talented art team of Joe Haley and T.J. Dort. These guys write and draw the awesome Underburbs book I've mentioned a few times. I love the energy coming from Electro-Cute and Psyched here. There's a story in this pic! lol. I still have one more sketch these guys did for me to post and it's my fav. I'll post it soon. Check out more of their work at www.underburbs.deviantart.com .

Since I just wrote a little something about her awesome book (Hybrid Bastards) on here, I figured it was a good time to show the sketch i got from artist, Kate Glasheen. Kate was super nice and fun to talk to at the 2010 Baltimore Comicon and I feel like to have gotten such an energetic, detailed and fun sketch from her. Kate decided to draw Firebomb from her look in SENTINELS Book 3: Echoes. I love the lines that Kate creates and the quality of her inks. The thin and thick contrast in her lines creates a unique visual and the added details really enhance the overall image. I also like the angular shape of her faces. I'm really glad she was able to draw something for my sketchbook. Please check out more of Kate's work at www.beeftree.deviantart.com .

It's been a long time since I read something that was new and exciting and that I was really wowed by, but Hybrid Bastards (written by Tom Pinchuk and drawn by Kate Glasheen) totally filled that void. I heard about Hybrid Bastards a long time ago from Miguel Rodrigues (who I haven't seen or heard from in forever and hope is well!) and I really wanted to pick up the book. But just as the trade for the series was solicited, Archaia had some problems and cancelled all their solicitations and postponed the trade's release. Flash-forward a year or so, and to my surprise, sitting at the table across from me at the 2010 Baltimore Comicon, was the artist of Hybrid Bastards, Kate Glasheen! As soon as I saw that she had copies of Hybird Bastards there, I made sure to get a copy. They were only $20 for a hardcover collection! Kate's art alone on the book is enough to sell me, but the story of Hybrid Bastards is just as awesome. Basically (and not to spoil too much) the premise of the book is about the Greek Gods, specifically Zeus and how one night Hera put a spell on him that made him not be attracted to pretty women, but anything else instead, lol. This results in a bunch of hybrid bastard creatures being born (ex. half god/half car, half god/half brick wall). The characters in Hybrid Bastards are very unique and funny. I loved all of them and truly hope there is a sequel planned for them. I highly recommend checking this book out to anyone who is looking for something fresh!

I've been a big fan of the ID Comics crew for a while now, so when I saw them at the 2010 Baltimore Comicon, I was happy to see the new member of their crew. Dominike Stanton joined the group recently and already he's headed for big things! In November, Dominike's first major work will be published as he illustrates Marvel's Deadpool. I don't think they could have found a more perfect fitting artist. Dominike's style is animated and full of energy. I was lucky enough to get this sketch of Bolt from the 1st Gen SENTINELS and I think it's awesome. Check out more of Dominike's art at www.drummerboydomo.deviantart.com.

Ryan Ottley is the artist on the hit Image comic, Invincible. Ryan has been drawing Invincible for a few years now and I've been a fan of his work ever since he started. I was lucky to have seen Ryan was a few tables down from me at the Baltimore Comicon last weekend, so, of course I hit him up for a sketch. I gave Ryan the choice of picking whoever he wanted to draw from SENTINELS and he didn't disappoint. I love his rendition of Templar. He even has those classic Ottley teeth, lol. Gotta love it. See more of Ryan work on his Deviant art page at www.wya.deviantart.com .

One of my favorite parts about going to conventions is meeting new creators and seeing their work. I meet Joe Haley and T.J. Dort last year at the Wizard Big Apple Con and I immediately loved their art and comic, the Underburbs. So, when I saw that Joe and T.J. were going to be at the Baltimore Comicon, I knew I was hitting them up for some sketches, lol. I got a few from them and all are equally great. This first one is another funny sketch (like Ziggy's that I posted yesterday). I like that people have been putting some humor into their sketches they've done for me lately. Check out Joe and T.J.'s comic at www.underburbs.deviantart.com . I'll be posting the other sketches they did for me soon!
