I’m not exactly sure when a hamster began making Stan Lee’s career choices, but the last couple of years have been questionable at best.
As a comic book fan, I choose to focus Stan’s past creations, and not his partnership with the Terminator.
Today’s legendary page was done by Mike Collins:
Mike Collins has been creating comics for over 25 years, working for Marvel, DC, 2000AD and a whole host of other publishers. In that time heís written or drawn pretty much all the major characters for each company- Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Flash, Teen Titans, X-Men, Captain Britain, Judge Dredd, Darkstars, Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt and more. He recently garnered an unlikely amount of publicity for drawing a comic based on the Royal Wedding, which -through a bizarre series of events- led him to cover the actual proceedings as a reporter for Dutch TV. No, really. Best known as an artist on the UK Doctor Who comic strip, he also storyboards for TV and films, including the recent Warhammer 40K film, and Horrid Henry. He also draws a series of noirish crime fiction graphic novels “Varg Veum” in Norse. He is World Famous in Norway. He lives in Cardiff, Wales and his studio is a short walk away from The Rift. He has a wife, three daughters, two cats and is an enthusiastic yet inept dancer.
As Ed is still on vacation (but back today, we hear) today’s page was colored once again by 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 day, folks, we’ll see you back here on Wednesday.
