Just poached this sketch from Ed’s site. Ed, you may know, is the genius co-creator of Jackie Karma. Let’s all wish and hope for him to ink and color this sketch as soon as possible.

Ed Tadem’s Mid-Nite Hour
A Different Lifetime (Spearmint Anthology)
Kevin Mellon has posted a short story he and I did a year or two ago for the Image Comics anthology This Is A Souvenir Songs Of Spearmint And Shirley Lee.

Battle Hymn Tribute Art
Thanks to the power of Google Alerts, I stumbled across these great Proud American and Mid-Nite Hour drawings (by Scott Arnold) at the following blog:
Been sitting on this cover for a while, but decided it might be fun to flash it, even though we’re still a few months away from the book’s release.
Steven Griffin cooked up this homage to Erik Larsen’s now classic Obama cover as a possible alternate cover for the upcoming GREAT BIG HAWAIIAN DICK #1. Since Erik posted his original on the Image boards, I thought I’d drag them both over here:

Underrated/Overlooked: BATTLE HYMN
Ben Morse of The Cool Kids’ Table blog posted this sterling overview of BATTLE HYMN. The most gratifying reviews are the ones that grasp exactly what I was going for when I initially conceived the reviewed bit of graphic inanity being addressed. And this review does that in spades:

And now it’s 2010…
