Hop to the Future

OK, the third comic mash-up! This idea was given to me by my coworker/friend Josh.

I just had to bang this one out before trying to get a little sleep before going to the airport at 5:30 a.m. and flying to Austin, TX for Fun Fun Fun Fest.

This week has been surprisingly rough on me and I haven't been getting good rest. So what do I do? Stay up ridiculously late just a-drawin' and artin'.

These are not complaints, just the facts.

I'm having fun despite my delirium...
*narf* *blat* *gwinch*


I gotta thank Tom Batten for inadvertently throwing me this idea. And although the DC/Marvel Amalgam series already did Dark Claw, I had my own ideas (if only slightly similar) for this treatment.

Caveat: This was only just a sketch that I wasn't even planning on taking this far, hence the busted anatomy and some generic ideas. And I accidentally gave him Thor boot tops instead of Wolverine boot tops. So I'll probably develop this more and enter it into the "MASH-UP" contest at Velocity Comics. I will say though my favorite features are the scalloped claws and the utility belt.

Not to mention the appellation of 'the Dark Canuck.' I'm sorry, that makes me chuckle each time I say it to myself. Also, what could more of a manly-man name be than Bruce Logan?!

The Mighty Incredible THORCULES!

Yea, and verily! Forsooth! I shall bestow upon you... the SPOOF!

We the People, take our streets to show some love

This was the scene at 12:16 a.m. at the corner of Broad St. and Laurel in Richmond, VA after Barack Obama was elected president. Six lanes of traffic completely taken over by everyone in an exhilirating and spontaneous eruption of celebration of the fruits of the democratic process gone right. The cops were terrific. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. (Apologies for the camera-phone pic.)
