Before we get into today’s fun and games, let me remind you that if you should be in the area this weekend, Sohmer, Lar & Rich will be attending the Emerald City Comicon. I am told that this is not, in fact, held in Oz, but in Seattle.
They will have lots of Gutters mousepads, lanyards, books and special prints available! So if you are attending the show, do stop by.
Now, on to today’s page.
Marvel’s “Before-Watchmen-Isn’t-A-Big-Deal-Check-This-Out” event Spider-Men is fast approaching. Nothing concrete has been announced, but speculation has it that this story will be a meeting between “Amazing” Peter Parker and “Ultimate” Miles Morales.
So… that’ll happen.
If it’s actually anything like Mad Men though, it should be pretty fun. I can’t wait to see which one of the Spider-Men cheats on his wife first while chain-smoking and drinking during the day. That would make things interesing.
I’m betting on Scarlet Spider…
Today’s page comes to us via a man even cooler than Don Draper, Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
Have a great weekend, friends! See you in April (which I’m told is Monday)!
