Gene Colan is offering a final chance to buy sketches from him before his retirement.
The rumors are true. Gene Colan, one of the most respected, influential and beloved artists in the history of comics, is getting ready to retire. But to give his fans an opportunity to own his original art, he’s agreed to a grand farewell. Gene has agree to do a limited amount before he retires. These 14″ x 17″ pencil portraits will be of anything fans desire, either one of the characters he helped make famous (such as Daredevil, Dracula, Iron Man, Namor, Capt. America, etc.) or anything else that fans want. You can even have Gene create your own superhero! … The cost of the full figure sketch (any character of your choice on 14″x17″ board) is $250.00 + shipping.
Yet Another Comics Blog is giving away 100 comics to celebrate the blog’s second anniversary. Just recommend a favorite comic to enter.
Lyle recommends Life on Mars, a BBC America TV series I’m also enjoying. It combines police drama with a hint of either time travel or medical mystery, depending on which explanation you want to believe. I find it involving because of the cultural contrasts between 1973 and now, complicated (for me, in a good way) by the British/American divisions.
