Whelp, I don’t need to here any more. My only question about this series is when is it coming out and why isn’t it tomorrow? I mean, no one’s trying to fool anyone here. We all know this book is coming out in conjunction with the movie, so why not enjoy the fact that a fantastic artist gets to play with a quirky character and make a fun book for everyone.
Rocket Raccoon (and Groot) are going to be the next big thing once this movie hits and yeah, I never thought I’d be saying that either. But I was at NYCC when the limited Rocket plushies hit the floor and you should have seen the excitement. Not just because it was a con exclusive, but because it was fun.
And every now and again we need a little reminder that fun is exactly what these things we call comics are supposed to be.
Today’s page comes to us from the one and only 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.
Enjoy the week, friends! See you back here Friday!
